Metro One has announced an exciting unlimited monthly travel pass for commuters from a range of stations. The existing 45-trip passes will continue to be available as well. It is worth noting that under the 45-trip pass, customers are only charged for 30 trips. However, you can now get access to the unlimited pass by only paying Rs 25 more than the 45-trip pass.For example, if you’re travelling from Andheri to Marol Naka/Airport Road, a 45-trip monthly pass will cost you Rs 775. But if you choose to get the unlimited trip pass, you only pay Rs 800.

This should no doubt encourage more commuters to invest in the unlimited pass. A monthly unlimited pass for longer distances like Versova to Ghatkopar, for example, will cost Rs 1,400 as compared to Rs 1,375 for a 45-trip pass. As per figures shared by Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL), around 4.5 lakh commuters used Metro One services each weekday in 2019.
