Metro has definitely made travel easy in the city and with time, it has become a part of our life. With the introduction of new metro lines, we all are enjoying an effortless connectivity to major localities thereby trying to get out of the traffic pandemonium. People have opinions but we just love Namma Metro. Its been close to 5 years now, we are travelling in Metro and in the transit, we have observed few things that we can relate mutually. So, here we are with the ‘things’ only people who travel in Bengaluru Metro can relate to.
#1 That Entry during Peak Hours!
Sometimes, it is crazy.
#2 If you spot a Selfie Buff then think that he/she is new to Metro
Selfie in Metro has definitely come down but in 2012-14, it was at its peak. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry used to take selfies and post them on Facebook. Of course, Metro is not an old relative to Bengaluru. Even today, people do take selfies.
#3 You always find a Gatekeeper
Yes, be it in Bengaluru Metro or Delhi Metro, we have always spotted a person standing near doors. Maybe one standing adjacent to the door and two like Gatekeepers on the side of it.
#4 You feel it when Metro arrives at M.G Road
M.G Road has its own vibe and people getting in at this stop always stands out. Their spoken English, attire, and the very look of them ring the bell and says that Metro has arrived at M.G Road.
#5 Pole Dance of Kids
Have you observed this? This is a common scene and unfortunately, you can’t help much than enjoying it. Agree?
#6 You find people worried about their Stops
What if I miss getting down at my stop? Ulsoor Banta? Vijayanagar Eshtu Doora? Well, Metro makes the announcement but who cares?
#6 That moment when you have to give up your seat for Aunties, Elders and other Scary people
It is a feeling that oscillates between Moral Values and Leg Pain.
#7 Network Problems between Cubbon Park and City Railway Station
If you travel in this underground stretch between Cubbon park and city railways station then you’ll relate to this.
#8 Doors open on Left or Right?
This is a confusion that haunts us every time especially when we are stuck in between the people. As announcement starts when the train gets closer to stop, we just want to make sure that we get down before the time.
#9 What if I lose my Token?
This is one weird thought that always bothers me. Every 10 minutes I check my pockets for the token. It is such a shitty and scary feeling man. Of course, before making my smart card. Oh, wait, what if I lose my smart card also?
#10 Purple to Green Line Confusions at Majestic
First of all, a thought comes like what if I don’t get down at Majestic. Nothing happens but still.
