Hyderabad Metro Rail, conceived to offer a world-class public transport system for Hyderabad city is a milestone project which is redefining the way in which commuters are travelling within the rapidly growing city. The project offers many advantages for the denizens of the city, as it covers 66 km of arterial roads with three well-planned corridors.
