How To Get a Smart Card?
A smart card is a prepaid card offered by the Noida Metro that travellers can use for metro commuting, without buying a token/ ticket every time they enter a station. One has to recharge the card as per their travel requirements. This smart card has a refundable fee followed by minimum balance. However, Noida Metro is now offering the smart card free of cost. Commuters can go to their nearest metro station to get this card.
Noida Metro Rail Corporation has also increased the limit of the minimum balance of Smart Card. While, Noida Metro earlier had a limit of only Rs 10 for the minimum balance on a smart card, it has now been increased to Rs 50 for entry into a Metro.
