Metro service trials begin today.
The Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) is all set to begin service trials using seven trains on the metro’s Aluva-Palarivattom corridor from Wednesday.

A total of 142 trips will be operated on the corridor from 6 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. The trials will begin using empty trains running at intervals every 10 minutes. As days go by, public announcements at stations and in trains, and other systems will be added in the trials.

The final days of the trial will see trains loaded with metro employees cruise at set speeds and halt at stations.

This will test whether passengers can embark and disembark as per schedule and whether Kudumbasree and security personnel at stations can manage the number of people.

“The schedule has been finalised by the metro agency’s operations wing,” sources said. Trains had successfully operated multiple trials along the corridor during extensive trial runs that began a year ago on the corridor.
