Pune, 19th June 2024: Due to increasing traffic jams, air pollution, and the prevalence of private vehicles on the roads of Pune city, the metro service is receiving a positive response from residents seeking hassle-free travel and reduced petrol-diesel expenses. In June, the average daily number of metro passengers reached 93,000. Passenger numbers have increased significantly over the past three and a half months, especially after the inauguration of the Ruby Hall to Ramwadi extended route in March 2024. Before this route started, passenger numbers were around 50,000 to 60,000.

Maha Metro is constructing about 33.2 km of metro line from Vanaz to Ramwadi and Swargate to Pimpri-Chinchwad, of which 29.58 km has been completed. Only 3.5 kilometers of underground metro work remains between the Civil Court Metro Station and the Swargate Metro Station, and this work is in its final stage. There is a high possibility that this route will start in July or August before the assembly elections. However, the currently launched route is already receiving a good response from Pune residents, providing another viable option for public transport.
