After being 'locked down' for nearly six months, metro train services across the country – Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Kochi – are all set to resume operations on 7 September.

In the 'Unlock 4' guidelines issued last week, the Centre allowed metro services to resume in a graded manner. While different metro corporations have devised their own SOPs – they all draw from physical distancing guidelines and mandatory mask wearing.

So, if you are planning to travel in the metro once it resumes operations, here are the dos and don’ts you have to follow.

Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri on Wednesday, 2 September, urged commuters to follow COVID-19 restrictions and insisted that the services will be cut down further if the physical distancing norms are not followed.
