Celebrate Your Special Occasions On Wheels With The Noida Metro

Have you ever wanted to celebrate a special occasion inside a metro train?

The NMRC (Noida Metro Rail Corporation) launches an initiative that lets people celebrate special days and more inside a metro coach. It is a unique and once in a lifetime experience to party it up on wheels. The NMRC is hoping to bring a smile on the faces of people through this exclusive experience.

ETV News Noida learns that the celebration on the metro is being arranged during both operational and non-operational timings. You can rent out a coach and accommodate around 50 people. The prices range from Rs.5000 to Rs.10000 for the whole experience.

The idea behind this policy is to attract people to the Metro. The NMRC acts as an avenue for entertainment as well as a medium of transport to attractive destinations. They hope to generate revenue for the metro authority through this short-term initiative. It is also known as a ‘non-farebox’ initiative. A similar short-term policy has been introduced earlier where the NMRC set up provisions to shoot movies on its trains.

“This will be a win-win situation for the people and the NMRC. The people will get an ideal place for celebrations while the NMRC can generate revenue,” said NMRC executive director PD Upadhyaya.

This ETV breaking news came as a surprise to regular travellers. ” Although this initiative is interesting, it’s not ideal. Celebrations can take place anywhere. This is a medium of transportation for many people. It may cause inconveniences if people decide to celebrate when the metro is in transit”, said a regular traveller in an interview.

The following is how the NMRC plans on putting this initiative into action:

  • The service provided is being divided into four categories, which you can avail according to your,
  1. If you are looking to book a running metro with an undecorated coach, the price is Rs. 8000/Hour
  2. If you are looking for an undecorated coach in a static metro then the price is Rs.5000/Hour
  3. A decorated and operating metro will cost you Rs.10000/Hour
  4. An undecorated and operating metro will cost you Rs.7000/Hour
  • If you wish to book a coach, you will need to apply 15 days before the date you of your occasion.
  • The allotted time for a non-operational coach is from 11pm-2am. You can book up to 4 coaches in the metro, during both operational and non-operational hours.
  • The NMRC requires you to pay RS.20000 as a caution deposit which is refundable at the time of your booking.
  • Supervisory staff is being assigned to your cabin to look over the celebrations for security reasons.
  • Tables and dustbins are being provided to the applicants as supporting facilities.
  • The NMRC are keen to ensure the applicants have a memorable and enjoyable experience. 

“The decision has been taken to increase the Metro’s viability and provide better facilities to people. The Noida Metro will become an affordable destination for entertainment and celebrations, that too at a very reasonable cost”, said Ritu Maheshwari, the Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority in a released statement.

The NMRC will be with you every step of the way as you prepare for the occasion. Alcohol is not being served under any condition. This year, if you have an anniversary, birthday and/or an extra special occasion, perhaps consider celebrating it with your loved ones on wheels. The NMRC is not the first corporation to introduce this idea. Rapid Metro Gurgaon, Gujarat Metro Rail Corporation and Jaipur Rail Corporation, have all introduced the same initiative prior to the NMRC.
