A few hours ago and exactly 2 days after the Bangalore Metro Rail Corp inaugurated Phase 1’s 6.4 km Reach 2 between Magadi Road and Mysore Road stations on its purple line, it has now opened its doors to commuters and started commercial operations! This section includes stations at Mysore Road, Deepanjali Nagar, Attiguppe, Vijayanagar, Hosahalli and Magadi Road as shown below:

• Green line – 4 km – Underground UG1 – Sampige Road to National College
• Green line – 8 km – Reach 4 & 4A – National College to Puttenahalli
