Total length is 190 km (including the lines which are under construction and will finish this september). 44 km of that is underground, 5-7 km is on surface and rest all is elevated.

Current ridership is around 1.1 million per weekday with around 125 km of operational length.

I think these pics are relatively old but you are right. It's not overcrowded like Mumbai although appearantly 100,000 people ride it every day.
Here's the description from the official website:

MMTS is the intra city train service in the city of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. Used by more than 100,000 commuters a day, this prestigious service was started as a joint venture by the state of Andhra Pradesh and South Central Railways (SCR) in the month of August 2003. Covering more than 40 stations with around 84 services in the city, this service has been the heart of public transport system in the capital city of Andhra Pradesh. Each MMTS train is composed of General, Ladies, PH (Physically Handicapped), Vendor and First class of compartments serving needs of the various requirements/class of the people of this city. The MMTS service runs on high speed electric trains which makes the commute fast and efficient.

No plans. I think they'll just stay with these Indian Coach Factory rolling stocks. Believe it or not, these ones are among the more updated ones. But thankfully the Metro rails will be different.

Yes, after Bangalore, Hyderabad started sprawling because of it's IT connection. Many if not most Infotech companies have offices or Headquarters there.

Great Work IU, but why have you named it "Subway" instead of "Metro"? After all it is elevated in parts.

Not yet since Phase 1 is slated for completion around 2014-2015.
But there will most likely be a plan for phase 2 released as construction for both corridors is in full swing.

Well there is a Driver but he doesn't really drive the train. He's more or less there for emergency situations where the computer might screw up. The train itself operates automatically.

No difference. But Chennai MRTS was built by Indian Railways. They built 19 km over a period of 25 years :P

Metro is a new rapid transit owned by State and Federal govt equally. They're planning to bring that MRTS under the new Metro system as well in about 3 years.
