New, Historic Milestone For Lucknow Metro As Ridership Crosses Four Crore
Lucknow, February 10 (TNA) Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) logged a new record to its name on Thursday as the ridership in the Lucknow Metro Rail crossed four crore. According to an official, so far 4.04 crore passengers have travelled by Lucknow Metro in the last 4 years and 4 months.
