Moving Millions with the Mumbai Metro

This brief explains how ADB financing of $926 million will help Mumbai create a modern, efficient, and safe metro rail system.

Catering to more than 7.5 million passengers each day, Mumbai’s suburban railway system is not only the world’s most crowded, it is also unsafe and slow. Approved in early 2019, the ADB-financed Mumbai Metro Rail Systems Project will include 58 kilometers of new elevated metro rail lines as well as energy-efficient, driverless trains. The brief also provides details about the project and contextual information on public transport issues in Mumbai and the government’s plans to create a new metro system.
