In order to get answers for this debate a passenger named Ravi on Thursday travelled from Ameerpet to Nagole station on metro train and later he travelled back from Nagole to Ameerpet metro station by RTC Xpress bus. He experienced few minor differences and the convenience is also different for each transportation.
