In a bid to accommodate the influx of commuters during IPL 2024 matches and the Bidadi Marathon, the Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has announced extended metro services and special provisions.

For IPL matches held at Chinnaswamy Stadium on March 25, 29, and April 2, BMRCL will extend its last train services until 11:30 pm, ensuring fans have ample time for their return journey. Moreover, the first metro train service will commence at 4:30 am on Sunday, March 24, to facilitate participants and spectators of the Bidadi Marathon, scheduled at the Bidadi industrial area.
