In a major milestone for the Lucknow Metro, which began functioning since 2017, its ridership has touched the 1.11 crore figure since the beginning of its services, reports Metro Rail News.
The information was released in a statement by the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC).
“LMRC thanks all passengers, who have showered such immense support and warmth ever since the commencement of commercial services in 2017. We touched the ridership figure of 1.11 crore on Tuesday. Nearly 60,000 passengers travel by Lucknow Metro every day,” it said.
