The Mumbai Metro, which connects Ghatkopar in East Mumbai to Versova has made over 13,000 trips and covered a distance of over 1.5 lakh kilometres.

A joint venture between Anil Ambani's Reliance Infrastructure and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), it had registered over 2.4 lakh daily commuters, immediately after the launch of its commercial operation, which later increased to 5 lakhs.

"The Mumbai Metro is committed to provide world class service to the city of Mumbai and would be happy to change the way Mumbaikars travel", the spokesperson added.

Two Mumbai metro lines approved
Thursday, November 20, 2014



MUMBAI Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has approved the construction of two more metro lines in the city

The 40km 36-station Line 2 will run completely underground from Dahisar in the north to Charkop and Bandra terminating at Mankhurd in the east of the city. The total budget for the project is estimated to be around Rs 256bn ($US 4.1bn).

Line 4 will be 32km long with 24 underground and six elevated stations, and will link Wadala with Ghatkopar and Kasarvadavali in Thane on the northern side of Mumbai. The project is expected to cost around Rs 191bn.

Half of the funding for the two lines is expected to come from international finance agencies, with the Indian government, the state of Maharashtra and MMRDA providing 20%. The remaining 30% will be financed through equity and debt. Both lines are due to open in 2020-21

Line 1 of the Mumbai Metro currently operates with four-car trains, but the stations are apparently long enough for eventual extension to six-car trains. I suspect that the Line 3 stations will be long enough for six-car trains at least, but should the Line 3 trains be six-car or eight-car? Or six-car with eventual extension to eight-car?

IR abandons Mumbai elevated project
Monday, May 11, 2015



INDIAN Railways' Rs 240bn ($US 4.5bn) project to construct a 63km elevated rail corridor linking Churchgate to Virar in Mumbai has been abandoned following a lack of response from private parties

Eight infrastructure giants including CAF, Siemens, IL&FS and Gammon India had initially expressed interest but none decided to participate in the bidding process. Request for Qualification (RFQ) bids were opened on April 27 2014 after the bidding process had been extended several times since its launch in August 2013

Mumbai Metro passes 100 million in a year
05 Jun 2015



INDIA: Mumbai Metro Line 1 has carried 100 million passengers in its first year of revenue service, operating concessionaires RATP Dev and Transdev announced on June 4.

Opened on June 8 2014, the 11·4 km east-west line is run jointly by the two French companies on behalf of the Reliance-led PPP consortium under a five-year agreement which also includes maintenance of the infrastructure.

Linking Ghatkopar and Versova, the elevated line serves 12 stations, providing interchange to Indian Railways’ suburban services at Andheri and Ghatkopar. Line 1 is now carrying an average of 260 000 passengers a day, and this figure continues to grow as the city’s population of around 22 million increases by an estimated 4% a year

Since my school life, I was hearing about the Mumbai subway system. Although the original route has not following now (the future line 3 will partly follow it), but at last almost after 20 years, Mumbai got metro. The system is fully elevated. Future line 2 & 3 will be fully underground.

It has some unique features, and I thing the most modern metro in India. It has close circuit tele vision inside compartments, and also black box syxtem in driver’s cab, same like airplanes.

But I read that maintenance is not much expected. I heard in heavy rain, water leaks from roof inside the compartments, infact I saw a video also, this is very shameful.

i figured that was the problem... Are they sticking with the cheap rakes for future expansions or are they going with more expensive reliable ones?

Once there was a good tramway network in Mumbai. It was the only Indian system which had double decker tramcars. I have not got any clear idea about the served routes. Please help me by writing route by route description, and a map (may be superimposed on the googlemap) of served area and route.

That great system was shut down in 1964. Some old hindi films like Chalti Ka Nam Gari, CID – etc – shown me about the live tram.

I only found that –

a) Tram served Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus – where was a large tram junction.
b) There was routes from CST to straight upward, straight downward, leftward up in front of Municipal Corporation Office, rightward down – but don’t know the name of the roads and the tram routes destination.
c) A route towards Kings Circle – but don’t know the number,
d) A route in front of Post Office – which route?
e) Both side of Flora Fountain was served by tram – route 5 served that place, but don’t know the destination.
f) There was route 6, which served Dadar, but don’t know about the other terminus.

Please help me to enrich about Mumbai Tram, because a tramfan from Canada asked me about that, and if he got route details and maps, he will publish it in his website, where the name of the sender will be published. .
