In the era of development, transportation is both useful and important for going from one place to another, and Metro Railway Corporation is one of the best ways for going place to place for shorter distances varying from few minutes to few hours. Metro train is considered to be more frequent and have high capacity. Metros are making life easy in many countries through their facilities. Since metros are electric railways and cannot be accessed by vehicles or pedestrians, the chances of accidents are almost negligible. You can travel in a metro through a smart card or tokens.
Tokens were initially released and after that smart cards were brought into existence. Tokens can be used in one journey only, whereas cards can be used multiple times due to their recharge facility. A metro recharge can be done with an ease. There is a cabin for tokens and smart card recharge at every metro station. This service to the travelers is provided by the experienced people sitting there, so as to provide one with right tokens to their destination and top up the smart card of their customers. Also, now that technology has developed, there are machines and ATM at every metro station that can do your top up even through virtual money.
Smart cards and metro recharge has made travelling through Metros easier as well as convenient. One can recharge his/her smart card and travel for multiple times without having to get in a queue and make purchase of a onetime use token every time, when they wish to travel through metro. Travelling through smart cards instead of tokens is,as said by the metro networks themselves, is cheaper. In every journey, one can save up to about 10%.
It’s easy to travel through metro network as all one has to do is carry a token to the destination or smart card and sit in a metro, which are convenient as the environment inside metro network are as per need of the people and weather outside, and travel through places to reach their own destination.
People, who have travelled through metro, are most likely to prefer it over any other mode of transportation for convenience enjoyed by them while travelling. Also, there are announcements about stations in the metro, maps at every station are available and also inside the metro, so as to help the people and guide them in their way.
These announcements for every station in the metro train make it easy for everyone to know where they are currently and how far away they are from their own destination. There are announcements on stations too, for letting people know which metro rail is arriving at which station. There are other types of announcements too, maybe a set of instructions for maintaining the metro stations and metro rails or announcing cancellation or delay of any metro train, which is rare.
Metro networks are not only well cleaned but are set to an environment to make people comfortable there, for example, in summers, air conditioners soothes everyone from the high temperature outside.
Just one token or smart card can take you to different places conveniently.
