The `City Water Bus’ passengers from Vyttila Hub to Kakkanad will have feeder service available from Kakkanad Boat Jetty to Infopark and the Collectorate from Friday, 23rd May. Shri. Benny Behanan MLA will flag off the service in the presence of Shri. Elias George, MD,Kochi Metro Rail Limited at 3.00 pm. The `City Water Bus’ initiated by #KMRL and run by the State Water Transport Department had started operating from #Vyttila Mobility Hub at #Kakkanad from September 2013, with the aim of developing alternate transportation routes to minimize traffic congestion along the city’s Metro corridor, where construction is underway.
There have been demands from boat-users and city dwellers to provide seamless connectivity from the Kakkanad Boat Jetty toInfopark and the #Collectorate for the convenience of the boat passengers, since there is no public transportation system from the Kakkanad Boat Jetty presently. In view of these demands, a free shuttle Feeder Bus is being started from Kakkanad Boat Jetty to#Infopark and the Collectorate from Friday for the convenience of the boat passengers.jk
