Lot of Employment Opportunities existed at the Kochi Metro project during it’s construction which seems to have been over. But with the starting of the service there will be lot of job opportunities in Kochi Metro regarding the service, maintenance.etc.
With publishing of Kochi metro ticket fares which are cheaper and faster than any other transportation in a busy traffic city like Ernakulam, there are lot of people waiting to use it. Calling auto rickshaws for ride in Kochi is very difficult as they charge huge amounts and ride without putting meters.
Auto rickshaw drivers in Ernakulam try to loot people by riding through different routes and long distances to reach a place without going in correct way. With coming of online taxi services like Uber and now Kochi Metro, they will study a good lesson.
