THREE NEW AFC-PC GATES INSTALLED AT OLD ESPLANADE METRO STATION

Kolkata, 05.05.2024

Three new AFC-PC gates have been commissioned behind the middle ticket counters of old Esplanade Metro station of Blue Line for the benefit of the Metro users. These new gates have been enabling commuters of Blue Line and Green Line 2 Corridors to exit smoothly from the paid areas of old and new Esplanade Metro stations’ premises. One out of these three Smart Gates is bi-directional.

As Esplanade is the meeting point of the Blue Line and Green Line, so keeping in mind the rush of passengers these additional QR enabled gates have been installed. These modern gates can handle 45 passengers per minute. Passengers after getting down at the old Esplanade Metro station can now punch their Metro Tokens, and Smart Cards at these gates to exit the station premises. Apart from that, commuters coming from Green Line 2 (Howrah Maidan-Esplanade) and willing to exit from Old Esplanade Metro station of Blue Line through the common corridor, can also punch their Metro Tokens, Smart Cards, and scan-coded tuckets at these gates.

With the addition of these three new AFC-PC Gates, at present there are 28 such Smart Gates at the old Esplanade Metro station. Out of these 28 gates, 5 gates are QR-enabled gates and 23 gates are dedicated for the entry and exit of passengers traveling with tokens and Smart Cards.
