Car rental can be obtained from the railway station if you have a license
Kochi: The first 'Rent a Car' system under the Southern Railway has commenced.
If you have a valid license then you can rent a car from the railway station and drive it yourself.
As a first step, the project will be implemented experimentally at four railway stations under the Thiruvananthapuram division.
These are located in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam South, Ernakulam North and Thrissur.
There will be five cars at each station. You must return the car within the stipulated time. A kiosk for booking the car will be installed at the railway station. Online booking facility is also under consideration. Indus Go, an agency, has been selected to run the project.
Thiruvananthapuram divisional commercial manager M Muraleedharan said the project, which has been on a trial basis for three months, could be extended to other railway stations if it is successful.
The rent-a-bike project had already started in Chengannur during the Sabarimala constituency.
