On 7 February 2020, Keolis inaugurated the final section of the automated metro network of Hyderabad, which is now 69 km long.
To mark the occasion, a ceremony was held in the presence of the Hon’ble Shri Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) Chief Minister of Telangana State and high representatives of Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMRL), L&T Metro Rail and Keolis Hyderabad (Keolis Indian subsidiary).
An automated metro for greater intermodality
The new line provides a connection with three bus stations in the city serving the suburbs of Hyderabad. The metro network is connected to six railway stations (including Begumpet, Secunderabad and Nampally) for fully enhanced shared mobility and intermodality.
With three inter-line exchange hubs now accessible to network passengers, travelling in Hyderabad, particularly at rush hour, is now safer and simpler for all citizens. In a city where more than 1,000 cars enter circulation every day, time spent using transport is more than ever at the heart of the concerns of the city's inhabitants.
