    Efforts are underway to remove the vehicle and restore train services: BMRCL

    BMTC has arranged for additional buses in light of the crisis at hand

    Many metro users were uninformed of the situation

 An emergency recovery road-rail vehicle had gone off track between Rajajinagar and Mahakavi Kuvempu Road Metro stations. This caused a disruption of metro services along the green line. At 5:28 am on October 3, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), posted on X (formerly Twitter): “Namma Metro commuters, please note that train services on the Green Line will be available between Nagasandra to Yeshwantpur and Mantri Square to Sampige Road Metro stations due to a technical snag at Rajajinagar Metro Station. We regret the inconvenience caused.”

This disruption has caused severe crowding in various stations along the Green line. “This is pathetic. There is no information at the entrance of stations about interruption, your security team is not sensitised to announce that manually during the security check either. It comes as a surprise when you reach the platform,” a user remarked on X.

 The Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) has arranged for additional buses in light of the crisis at hand. “Efforts are underway to remove the vehicle and restore train services. We are now carrying out single-line operations with reduced frequency on the affected section. Operations on other sections of the Green Line and the Purple Line ( Byappanahalli-Kengeri and Whitefield-KR Puram) are normal.” BMRCL chief public relations officer BL Yashwanth Chavan said in an interaction with Moneycontrol.
