Neha Pandit, Director and Business Head, Pune IT City Metro Rail Ltd, emphasises the project's commitment to passenger comfort and convenience. With vibrant designs, spacious interiors, and advanced passenger information systems, the trains are tailored to provide an exceptional travel experience. This collaborative effort between the public and private sectors sets a benchmark for metro systems nationwide, embodying the spirit of innovation and progress. As work progresses steadily, Rahul Mahiwal, PMRDA Commissioner assures that the project remains on schedule, with plans to dispatch the remaining trains over the next 6-8 months. Pune Metro Line 3, spanning 23km from Hinjawadi to Shivajinagar, represents a significant leap forward in Pune's transportation infrastructure, promising to reshape urban mobility and drive the city's overall development trajectory.
