The new feeder service for passengers travelling in Jaipur Metro has been launched at Mansarovar and New Aatish Market Metro Stations. Jaipur metro-operated rickshaws will soon be running between other seven metro stations in Jaipur also.

This new system will carry passengers from one metro station to another with the minimum fare of Rs 5- Rs 10 per person. E-rickshaws carry four passengers at a time.

The logo of ‘Jaipur Metro Feeder Service’ will be on e-rickshaws so that the passengers will be able to differentiate between metro’s e-rickshaws and privately-operated e-rickshaws.

This feeder service has been launched for making the trip to Jaipur Metro stations easier. Privately-operated e-rickshaws outside the metro stations charge exorbitant fare from the passengers for a short trip. So, the Jaipur Metro administration decided to launch their own E-rickshaws with the minimum fare for passengers.

The modular chargers developed by Rajasthan Electronics and Instrumentation Limited (REIL) are compact, safe and IT-enabled, said a JMRC official.
