Nearly 100 volunteers drawn from JM Patel College, MVM College of Commerce and Science and Malini Kishor College of Commerce and Economics participated in the campaign along with the officials and staff of Mumbai Metro One.

They were carrying placards thanking the commuters as well as the shopkeepers who run their establishments in the vicinity of the Mumbai Metro One stations for keeping the Metro clean. The volunteers also rode the train and interacted with around 100 commuters, encouraging them to record their reactions in special logs. A regular commuter, Mrs. Sumati A. Saikar wrote, “Mumbai Metro is not just the fastest mode of public transport in Mumbai, it is also the safest and the cleanest.”

The college students were also upbeat about their own involvement with the campaign. Ashwin Poojary, 19, a student of MVM College of Commerce and Science, said, “I decided to get involved in the drive because I am really impressed with the efforts of Mumbai Metro to provide the best service to its commuters.”

Commenting on the Swachh Metro Abhiyaan, MMOPL Spokesperson said, “Our efforts to provide a clean and safe ride on Mumbai Metro would not have been possible without the contribution of the commuters, business-owners around Metro stations, and our staff. We have taken this opportunity to express our gratitude for their support in the endeavour.”
