The monorail services will be operated at a frequency of twenty-two minutes each and the ticket fare will be between Rs 10 to Rs 40.

The second phase will include stations such as Sant Gadge Maharaj Chowk, Lower Parel, Mint Colony, Ambedkar Nagar, Naigaon, Dadar (East), Wadala, Acharya Atre Nagar, Antop Hill, and GTB Nagar. 

Apart from the launch of Monorail’s Phase II, CM Fadnavis along with Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal also inaugurated Parel Terminus on March 3. The first local bound to Kalyan from Parel was flagged off by the Union minister and Maharashtra CM.
