hindustantimes : "When Noida got the Metro rail service nearly a decade after neighbouring Delhi got one, the locals thought it would end their travel miseries. It has certainly provided a comfortable connectivity between Noida and Delhi. But it has failed to address the issue of last mile connectivity as the commuters have to still rely on unsafe auto-rickshaws for reaching the Metro station or way back home.
In the absence of a reliable public transport, commuters board private buses at their own risk. “They wait for long for passengers to board them until they are filled up completely. Then to make for lost time, they drive rash,” said Het Ram, a resident of Barola."
