If you are planning to go pandal-hopping all night and the taxi drivers refuse to drive you around, you don’t have to worry about changing your plans because you have an option of catching the metro available till 4 am.
From Saptami to Navami, metro railways will be available for overnight services.
“Last year the overnight services were available only on Ashthami and Nabami. On Saptami, passengers could avail the trains till midnight. But this year the nightlong service will continue for three consecutive days.” Protyush Ghosh, metro railway spokesperson said.
Last year, thousands of people availed the overnight services on Ashthami and Nabami. While several people who had a tough time commuting on Saptami compelled Metro authorities to extend services for another four hours on Saptami, this year.
“Forty-six more trains will be running specially for the festive season,” Ghosh said. 76 more trains will run from Saptami to Dashami, seven more on Ashthami, Nabami and 16 more on Dashami.
