Yesterday We Mumbaikars welcomed metro ( after a long wait). I along with my friends went to Andheri to get our first experience of metro travel in Mumbai. We travelled from Andheri to Ghatkoper and return.
Some information on Mumbai Metro (source - Wikipedia )
The Mumbai Metro is India's first public private partnership metro project in which all the three phases (construction, operation and maintenance) were given to a private player.
The is a metro system serving in the Indian city of Mumbai. The system is designed to reduce traffic congestion in the city, and supplement the existing, but severely overcrowded Mumbai Suburban Railway network. It will be built in three phases over a 15-year period, with overall completion expected in 2021. When complete, the core system will comprise three high-capacitymetro railway lines, spanning a total of 63 kilometres (39 mi). Line 1 of the Mumbai Metro is operated by Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL), a joint venture company formed by Reliance Infrastructure, Veolia Transport and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA).
We enjoyed our Metro ride, more detailed post coming soon...
