Advantages of Metro Rail

» The Metro Rail System has proved to be the most efficient in terms of energy consumption, space occupancy and numbers transported
» Hi-capacity carriers – very high volumes of peak hour peak direction trips
» Eco-friendly – causes no air pollution, much lesser sound pollution
» Low energy consumption – 20% per passenger km in comparison to raod-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 metres width only for elevated rail
» Faster – reduces journey time by 50% to 75%
