FM Nirmala Sitharaman in her budget announcement stated that Metro Lite and Metro-Neo technologies will be deployed to provide metro rail systems in Tier-2 cities and the peripheral areas of Tier-1 cities, at much lesser costs with the same experience, convenience and safety.

About Metro Neo

  • Metro Neo is a mass rapid transit system providing low-cost, energy-efficient and eco-friendly urban transport solution for tier 2 and tier 3 cities.
  • Drawing power from overhead wires, Metro Neo will not run on track but on road. It is suitable for places where traffic is huge during peak time.
  • The Maharashtra government has already given a green signal for this Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) for Nashik.

About Metrolite

  • The ‘Metrolite’ system will have a dedicated path separating the road traffic with it. For segregation with road traffic, fencing can be provided on either side of the network.
  • The three-coach train will have a carrying capacity of 300 passengers. Sources said the government would provide financial assistance to states to implement the light urban rail transit system.
