Going to work in metro rail and reaching the station near the office, or school or college. Then, getting down at the other station and either walk or take a cab to the office, school, or college. This is the usual itinerary of many people in the city. Well, the troubles of IT employees and those going to schools and colleges will be ending soon. Already available in metros such as Bengaluru, Noida, and New Delhi, 'Metro Ride' will soon be available in Hyderabad too.


On a normal day, it is pretty tough to get a cab from the metro station to the office, school, or college. So is the case with the auto wallahs, who charge almost double when the passenger is in a hurry. Share autos are another horror story altogether.


So imagine if you had an auto waiting for you once you get off the metro station. It will pick you up from your doorstep and drop you at the nearest metro station. Then, it will pick you from the office and drop you at the nearest metro station. All one needs to do is to download their app and enter the details of travel.


And imagine if you got all this at minimum fare? A similar thought happened to pass through the minds of the people behind 'Thinkcrazy Technologies Private Limited' who are using AI or artificial intelligence to take 'Metro Ride' to people.


It's just a matter of minutes that one can download the Metro Ride app on their smartphone and get going. With loads of traffic on roads and increased pollution, this is a viable option to reach from place to place, say the promoters. Also, with high diesel and petrol rates, people are bound to get used to taking the metro, instead of relying on cabs and autos.


Another plus is that 20 percent of Metro Ride drivers happen to be women. Also, if more than a couple of passengers are taking the same route, Metro Ride pools them. And the charges are mere Rs 18. The first kilometer is charged at Rs 10, and the Metro Ride autos operate within the 5 km range. The highest price that one will pay could be Rs 30 max.Though no date has been formally fixed, if all things go as planned, Hyderabadis will soon enjoy 'Metro Rides.'
