In association with Namma Auto Project, Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) has flagged off e-autos that function as a feeder service from the metro station at Alandur on a pilot basis.

CMRL had promised to reduce carbon emission and introduce a green public transport network. Three electric autos, which charge commuters ten rupees from the Alandur metro station to DLF IT Park and Porur, has set the example now.

Officials said the autos are free of any noise and come with an additional feature of zero tail pipe emission and is any day a cleaner, greener form of transport than anything else.

Times of India quoted Narasim Prasad, Director (Systems and Operations), CMRL as saying, “We are running feeder services from various metro stations, but the launch of an electric feeder system is an extension of CMRL’s mandate to offer our customers an effective means of transport for a sustainable future.”

Namma Auto’s Manju Menon added, “This project also provides backing to our focus on implementing the sustainable development goals which include building a sustainable community and promotes action to improve climate change,” Times of India reported.
