Mumbai: New metro lines helping to ease congestion

The two new metro lines that were inaugurated by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, between Andheri and Dahisar, in Mumbai are called to be more successful than ever. The introduction of these metro lines has resulted in decongestion of the major roads of Mumbai. The lines have managed to reduce travel time, which is a relief for both Mumbai residents and those using the Western Express Highway and local trains.

The newly built metro lines are air-conditioned and are reasonably priced, providing passengers with a comfortable and efficient ride. The response to these lines has been overwhelming, with over 1.2 crore commuters using the lines in less than a year. It is expected that the number of riders will continue to grow, once the lines are fully operational.

The lines offer direct connectivity to Mumbai's northern suburbs, which has helped to ease congestion on the Western Express Highway and the local train network. The 22 trains providing 245 services daily include one train reserved for women. The metro lines are part of the larger Maha Mumbai Metro network, which will create a carrying capacity of 1 crore every day, plus 40 lakh on suburban trains when fully operational.

One important innovation made by the MMRDA is the National Common Mobility Card-Mumbai 1, which provides a smooth travel experience across India. The card can be used to purchase tickets for city buses, for shopping, and for any Metro line in Mumbai and throughout India. The introduction of the mobility card will be a game-changer in the way people travel, as it will make travel more convenient and hassle-free.
