Advantages of Metro Rail


  • The Metro Rail System has proven to be most efficient in terms of energy consumption, space occupancy and numbers transported.
  • High-capacity carriers – very high volumes of peak hour peak direction trips.
  • Eco-friendly – causes no air pollution, much less sound pollution.
  • Low energy consumption – 20% per passenger km in comparison to road-based systems.
  • Greater traffic capacity – carries as much traffic as 7 lanes of bus traffic or 24 lanes of car traffic (either way).
  • Very low ground space occupation – 2 meter width only for elevated rail.
  • Faster – reduces journey time by 50% to 75%.
