Mumbai Metro with 10 lines being built to serve Mumbai

Mumbai Metro with 10 lines is an urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) being built to serve Mumbai, Maharashtra’s capital and largest city.

Its development has been entrusted to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), who in 2004 came out with a 146.5 km master plan with multiple lines. Due to various issues which range from policy paralysis (EPC vs PPP, metro rail vs monorail) to environmental issues, the MMRDA has so far only been able to develop 1 metro line in the suburbs connecting Versova – Andheri East – Ghatkopar.

In 2015, a new 118 km master plan was approved and the then incumbent government provided much needed impetus for the development of 2 lines: Dahisar East – Andheri East (Red Line) and Dahisar East – D.N. Nagar (Yellow Line) in addition to the Cuffe Parade – BKC – Aarey Colony (Aqua Line).

In June 2019, a new nodal agency called Maha Mumbai Metro Operations Corporation (MMMOCL) was established for operating and maintaining all Mumbai Metro services on lines owned by MMRDA. In September 2019, the MMRDA unveiled a new 337 km master plan for Maha Mumbai Metro’s network consisting of 10 lines (total of 17 sections).

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has lent its services as the interim General Consultant for the execution of most lines.
