The Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) had declared the fares for Aqua Line metro in December 2018. The minimum fare will be Rs 9 and the maximum Rs 50.
Noida’s Sector 52 station is expected to come up as an interchange station for the Noida–Greater Noida rail corridor’s Aqua Line metro.
Consumers travelling from Delhi to Sector 32 Noida City Centre station through the Blue Line will have to wait to hop on directly onto the Aqua Line as the Blue Line extension up to Sector 52 is not yet operational.
The Aqua Line metro will cover following stations:
(NOIDA) Sector 76, 101, 81, NSEZ, Noida Sector 83, 137, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148. (Greater Noida) Knowledge Park II, Pari Chowk, Alpha 1, Delta 1, GNIDA Office and Depot metro stations.
Commuters can buy QR-coded paper tickets or use smart cards.
The smart cards being used for the Delhi Metro will not be valid for travel in the Noida Metro. But smart card users will get a 10 per cent concession on fares.
Just like DMRC’s metro lines, the Aqua Line too will have different compartments for ladies (first coach) senior citizens and differently-abled people. Each compartment will have a specific colour to differentiate between categories. According to a PTI report, a separate space for wheelchairs in the driving trailer cars will be provided at both the ends of the train.
The Aqua Line trains are designed to run at a maximum speed of 80 kmph, clocking an average speed of 37.5 kmph
