How does one search for routes and places with Next2Metro?
Search can be done in the simplest way by going to the search box where you can type in either a Metro Station name or a destination name e.g. Jahangir Puri Metro Station, Canara Bank. When the typed keyword is a Metro station then all places which are available with Next2metro, near that station will be displayed as suggestion below the search box. If that destination is present in our database, then it will be shown as a suggestion. Upon clicking on a suggestion the next page will have information about the Nearest Metro station of that destination along with detailed route to that destination from Metro station exit gate, address of destination, landmark and other info close to the destination and a customized map depicting the location of Metro station and that destination for better understanding of the route.
How is it different from Google and other similar platforms?
Other platforms like Google that are currently providing similar services are mostly erroneous and lack preciseness of the route information needed by the Metro commuters. No such platform provides the information of Metro gate numbers to exit from, as of now. These apps/services consume more data and rely heavily on a hi-speed connection like 3G, 4G whereas Next2Metro is very swift and takes seconds to give the desired route information even on low speed connections. Next2Metro is not complex and ease of use is highest as compared to other platforms
What does route information contain?
Route information contains the exact gate number of the Metro station which needs to be used to reach the desired destination along with turn by turn navigation and other relevant information like public transport availability, in case the distance is not walkable.
What if the suggested route isn't correct or not the best route for that destination?
Although we release the information after multiple levels of data cross checks and taken strict measures to ensure every destination on the portal has the best and most accurate route information available but in some rare events or due to any other unforeseen circumstance, if the route is found to be incorrect, then the user may report the same from the results page of that destination.
