Recommendations: The following recommendations offer implementable solutions to the key issues raised previously: 1) Extend hours to operation from 8:00AM to 7:00PM (April to September) and from 8:00AM to 6:00PM (October to March). 2) Offer specific ticket fares for adults and children: INR 15 and INR 10.
