Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) has announced that it has completed four successful years of seamless and comfortable travel for over 400 million passengers.
To mark the completion of the coveted landmark in Mumbai’s transportation history, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis launched several initiatives at Versova Metro Station. Fadnavis inaugurated the “Majhi Metro Art” train of award-winning paintings, poems and photographs at the festival held earlier in the year.
In a unique initiative in the country, the Chief Minister launched the mobile metro ticketing product “Skiiip Q” where Metro commuters need no longer stand in queues for a ticket which can be generated by a QR code on the mobile phone.
He also released a coffee table book showcasing the four year journey of Mumbai Metro on the occasion.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said “Mumbai Metro One has changed the face of mobility in Mumbai. With the use of metro, you don’t need a secondary transport system as it takes you closer to your destination. Mumbai Metro One has completely changed the space of mass rapid transport in Mumbai and is the pioneer of the metro movement. The system planning and execution of Mumbai Metro One will help in shaping up upcoming metro projects in the city”
“The Mumbai Metro is very efficient, clean, fast and green. In Mumbai suburban trains, the distance between two stations is usually two to three kilometers but in the metro, the distance between two stations is just a kilometre. The metro has helped in bringing down pollution, which is equal to planting
3 crore trees”, the Chief Minister added.
