Mumbai Metro One logs 200 million riders

The Metro rail carried its 200 millionth passenger on August 1. The feat was achieved in 786 days since operations began on June 8, 2014. “It is the quickest mass rapid transit system (MRTS) to notch up the 200 million passenger mark in the country. Mumbai Metro One is now carrying an average of 3.4 lakh commuters every weekday , an almost 18% rise from corresponding ridership figures for July last year,“ said the RInfra-promoted Mumbai Metro One Private Ltd (MMOPL), which operates the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar (VAG) corridor.
The Metro crossed the one million passenger mark in less than a month since it was flagged off. The 100 million mark was crossed in less than 400 days.
The 11.4 km VAG alignment, with 12 stations, is the eighth densest Metro corridor in the world and has helped reduce travel time for point-to-point commuters from 90 to 21 minutes.
