Jaipur Metro Information
On the way to becoming the sixth metro system to be in operations in India, the Jaipur Metro set some truly noteworthy milestones. The construction period lasted just 4 years and the metro began operations on the 3rd of June 2015. Not only is it considered to be one of the fastest metro networks built in India but it is also the first metro to run on a double-storeyed elevated road. Owned and operated by the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC), it currently has just 1 line in operation, serving 9 stations. This comparatively small metro that’s about 9 km long, has great expansion plans. If things go according to plan, the metro will stretch over 30 km, along 2 lines, serving 31 stations in total.
