To provide safer journey for women passengers, the Hyderabad Metro Rail has dedicated a coach to women in each of the metro trains.
Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited Managing Director N V S Reddy, L & T Metro Rail (Hyderabad) Managing Director and CEO K V B Reddy, and table tennis player Naina Jaiswal launched the ladies only coaches on the metro at the Ameerpet station on Monday.
The dedicated coach, 54 cameras covering each metro station, and more cameras offering a 360-degree view of every coach from inside, ensured that a high degree of safety was available to women on the metro services, N V S Reddy said.
He added that the security was further buttressed by the involvement of the Hyderabad Police's SHE Teams as well.
About 60,000 women take the Hyderabad metro every day.
