History of Mumbai Metro


The foundation stone for the first phase of Mumbai Metro was laid by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in June 2006. The construction, however, only began in 2008. A test run was successfully done in 2013 and the functioning of the metro finally began in June 2014. The line that was created was the Versova – Andheri – Ghatkopar line. This line was under the control of Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL), an alliance between Reliance Infrastructure (69%), Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, (26%) and RATP Dev Transdev Asia, France (5%). However in June 2019, a new agency known as the Maha Mumbai Metro Operations Corporation (MMMOCL) was created and given the responsibility for operations and maintenance of the Mumbai Metro. 



However, this task was not easy. The construction of Mumbai Metro was met with a lot of challenges. The people of Mumbai sat down to protest because of the orders that were given by the government  to cut down trees in the Aarey region for the construction of the railway system. These protests happened in 2018 and came up again in 2022.

Under construction and Proposed lines


  1. Line 3 Aqua Line: This line is currently under construction and will stretch across Colaba, Bandra and SEEPZ. It is also called the Mumbai Metro Rail Project (MMRP) and will probably be fully underground. This line will massively increase the connectivity of the city. 
  2. Line 2B Yellow Line: This line will be the DN Nagar – Mandale Corridor. It is expected to be around 23.6 kilometres long and provide connectivity to important places like the Mumbai International Airport. 
  3. Line 4 Green Line: Spanning to an area of 32.3 kilometres, this line will connect Wadala to Kasarvadavali. The main purpose of creating this line was to cater to the ever increasing urban population. 
  4. Line 5 Orange Line: This line will cover the distance between Thane and Kalyan. The line will be 23.50 kilometres with 17 stations. 
  5. Line 6 Pink Line: This will be known as the Swami Samarth Nagar – Jogeshwari – Kanjurmarg – Vikhroli and will improve connectivity in the eastern suburbs of the city. 
  6. Line 9 Red Line: This line will stretch from Dahisar East to Mira Bhayandar and facilitate connectivity in the northern suburbs of Mumbai
  7. Line 8 Gold Line: This line will link Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Internet Airport (CSIA) to Navi Mumbai International Airport (NMIA). The line will be 35 kilometres long with 7 stations. 


This is the only metro system in India where all lines are owned by different owners. It has crossed a total ridership of 957 days. In the beginning, the speed was 50 kilometres per hour but it increased eventually. All trains have a black box for help during accidents. 



Navi Mumbai Metro


A Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) will be constructed in Navi Mumbai known as the Navi Mumbai Metro. Only one line will be built, connecting areas like Belapur, Kharghar, Taloja & more by City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO). The City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) was granted the CMRS certificate on June 21, 2023, for the commercial operation of the Navi Mumbai Metro Line.

Mumbai metro has undoubtedly improved connectivity in the city and reduced the burden on the local trains. Not only the residents but tourists can also make use of this during their visit. 



Train Infrastructure 


The trails are fully air-conditioned and have emergency facilities in case of a fire. There is a lot of space and seating capacity in the metros so that passengers can travel easily and comfortably. Introduction of new features is also underway such as LED lights, 3-D maps, wheelchair facilities, intercom facility, and much more. 


In conclusion, the Mumbai metro system has been successfully serving the people of the city. There still remains a lot of delay in construction work due to private ownership of each line. Traffic and congestion have always been an integral part of Mumbai in a way, but things are slowly starting to change. With the current operation, operational lines, people of Mumbai can evade traffic and travel at a very nominal price. 


Whether you are a tourist or a resident, Mumbai Metro with its top class facilities is ready to serve you.
