Kolkata, Date: 21.06.2024

The timings of the experimental night services on Blue Line are being advanced by 20 minutes from 24.06.2024 (Monday). At present these services are leaving Dum Dum and Kavi Subhash stations at 11.00 pm from Monday to Friday. From 24.06.2024, these services will leave at 10.40 pm from Dum Dum and Kavi Subhash stations. These experimental night services will be available from Monday to Friday and will stop at all stations en-route. No ticket counter will remain open to issue tokens, Smart Cards etc. at any station. Commuters are requested to purchase tokens from the ASCRM machines installed at all stations by using UPI payment mode. Commuters having Metro Smart Cards will also be able to avail these experimental night services.

For the convenience of the passengers, Metro authorities have decided to open more gates in most of the stations. In stations like Netaji, Masterda Surya Sen, Gitanjali, Kavi Nazrul, Sahid Khudiram and Kavi Subhash, 100 % gates remain open for the passengers willing to avail these services.

In stations like Dum Dum, Belgachia, Girish Park, Mahatma Gandhi Road, Maidan and Mahanayak Uttam Kumar, more than 60 % gates are remaining open. In stations like Shyambazar, Sovabazar-Sutanuti, Chandni Chowk, Park Street, Rabindra Sadan, Netaji Bhavan and Rabindra Sarobar, 50 % gates are remaining open for these experimental services in order to make entry and exit of passengers fast and easy.
