Despite promises of improved services and additional coaches, the implementation of the 3+3 coaches remains a distant dream for commuters.

The metro authorities need to address this pressing issue urgently to provide a smoother and more efficient commuting experience for the public.

With IT offices fully operational again, Raidurg station sees around 75,000 passengers daily, making it the most frequented, followed closely by Ameerpet with 65,000 and LB Nagar with 50,000.

These stations are crucial as they connect major residential and commercial hubs, drawing commuters from areas like Gachibowli, DLF, and Vanasthalipuram.

However, the influx has led to overcrowding issues both within the stations and on the roads below.

Commuters have voiced concerns over inadequate facilities such as security checkpoints and fare gates, worsening the chaotic conditions.

Passengers lament the limited train capacity during peak times, which forces many to wait for multiple trains before boarding.

The situation is particularly challenging for women commuters, facing longer queues and security delays at certain stations.

Despite these challenges, the Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) has not yet addressed the pressing need for increased train frequency or additional coaches, despite daily ridership reaching approximately 6.22 lakh passengers.

The demand for better services, including more coaches and improved frequency during peak hours, continues to grow among commuters.
