1 crore ridership crossed

In a significant achievement, Pune Metro has reached a ridership of 1 crore. The official Pune Metro handle on X (formerly Twitter) announced that the ridership has reached 1.17 crore from March 6, 2022, to January 24, 2024, expressing gratitude to all Punekars for their contribution to this milestone.

The inaugural ceremony for the first train took place on March 6, 2022, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiling 10 stations for public use. On August 1, 2023, the PM inaugurated an additional 11 stations. Presently, 23.66 kilometers of the total 33.2 kilometers are accessible to the public, with the remaining 9.62 kilometers under construction.

Starting January 1, 2024, Pune Metro has increased train frequencies on both routes. During peak hours (8 am-11 am and 4 pm-8 pm), trains will operate every 7.5 minutes, and during non-peak hours (6 am-8 am, 11 am-4 pm, and 8 pm-10 pm), a train will run every 10 minutes. Daily trips from Pimpri-Chinchwad to Civil Court have increased from 81 to 113, and from Vanaz to Ruby Hall Clinic, from 80 to 111.
