The best way to travel on the metro is with a Smart Card. This is an electronic card that can be obtained over the counter from Customer Care of any metro station or through authorized channel. Smart Card can be obtained by paying a security deposit of Rs. 50/-.
Smart Card can be used as Store Value Pass or Trip Pass.
Store Value Pass is an electronic purse with some pre-loaded monetary value, as per your choice. Each time you use the metro, the ticket value will be deducted from the monetary value stored in the Smart Card at the exit gate as per the fare chart. The minimum recharge value is Rs. 100/- and maximum monetary value that can be stored is Rs. 3000/-.
Trip Pass is loaded with 45 trips which is valid only for 30 days from time of purchase/reload. Once Trip pass is purchased, origin and destination station cannot be changed.
The security deposit of Rs. 50/- can be refunded as per applicable rules.
Buying a Smart Card will help you save time by avoiding queues at ticket counters.
