Our objective is to make Kochi the first city in the country where the entire public transport system: the metro, the buses, the boats, the auto-rickshaws and the taxies work together as a seamless integrated system; with a common timetable, common ticketing and centralised ‘command and control’.
“At KMRL, our first and foremost goal is to create a transportation network that is sustainable, eco-friendly and inclusive. Through initiatives like e-auto, solar-powered stations, plastic recycling machines etc, we have been able to make significant changes in the environment and in people’s lives. We look forward to continuing this, with more such innovative and eco-friendly projects in the future. Kochi Metro will soon be the transport lifeline of Kochiites”
– Alkesh Kumar Sharma IAS, Managing Director, KMRL
