MUMBAI: Commuters need not stand in queues at Metro stations to top up smartcards. Mumbai Metro launched a commuter-friendly service on Christmas day, which will enable them to recharge smartcards and check the balance on internet-enabled mobiles.

Over 50 banks will offer the facility to recharge smartcards online.

"The service is offered to commuters at no additional cost. One can also use credit and debit cards to top up the money on smartcards. You can check the card balance using the same service," said a Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd spokesperson. "This is the latest addition to commuter-friendly and innovative products introduced since the launch of Mumbai Metro. We will continue to bring value addition and ensure comfort to commuters with the help of technology," he added.

The 11.40km-long Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar corridor provides seamless connectivity between western and eastern Mumbai. The corridor, which has 12 stations, has reduced Mumbaikars' travelling time from 90 minutes to just 21 minutes.

MMOPL has been awarded the contract to run the services for 35 years.

Hitesh Thakkar, a regular commuter from Ghatkopar, said, "The Metro service is very organised and there is discipline while boarding and alighting the trains. The same can't be said about the connecting suburban trains."

Another commuter said Metro trains too were packed during peak hours. "But we do not mind travelling in a crowd as long as we are assured that we will reach the destination on time and without any interruption," he said. Metro One Pvt Ltd,Mumbai metro
