Now we will find Preethi’s name flashed in all the newspaper supplements for operating the first metro train service in Chennai. However, the initial excitement among its commuters soon died down when they realized the fare charged was on the higher side compared to that charged by metro in Bangalore.
What is more important I feel is taking care of the safety of passengers which should be the priority of the authorities incharge and also to maintain the metro stations well. Unfortunately the experience of commuters the past few years while the metro rail was being readied, has not been a pleasant one considering the diversions and road obstructions they had to face not to speak of the accidents that took place during the years of its making.
Hope there will be more of Preethis in future as well.
