The Chennai Metro feeder service from the Airport to Tambaram is being rerouted through residential areas.
Story so far: The Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) launched feeder services from the airport to Tambaram West early last month. The bus, S100, was only plying parallel to GST and not through areas like Hasthinapuram and Chitlapakkam.
- There are at least 20 MTC buses along this route. Residents demanded they be rerouted to go through interior localities.
- The bus now takes a different route, travelling through interior localities. It now covers Chitlapakkam Anna Street, Gandhi Road, and the Tambaram Railway Station, among others.
What’s next? Officials will now see the patronage on this new route and make changes if needed.
