Gurgaon Metro – Information, Route Maps, Fares, Tenders & Updates
Menu: News & Construction Updates | Overview
Gurgaon (Gurugram) Metro, also known as Rapid Metro, consists of one metro line with 11 stations developed by Rapid MetroRail Gurgaon (RMRG) led by Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS).
In Phase 1 of the project, a 5.1 km line was built to link the Delhi Metro’s Sikanderpur Station (Yellow Line) with DLF Cybercity business district. This line opened to the public for commercial operations on November 14, 2013.
In Phase 2 of the project, a 7 km extension of the line opened on March 31, 2017 to connect Sikanderpur Station with Sector 55-56 via 5 new stations on Golf Course Road (see images). The entire line is serviced by 12 3-coach trains supplied by CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Works on a sub-contract from Siemens.
On 22nd October 2019, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) took over operations of the line after its original operator (RMRG) expressed its inability to run operations due to low footfall and high operational expenditure.
Numerous new metro lines have been proposed to connect Gurgaon with neighborhoods within Gurgaon, old Gurgaon, Dwarka, Bawal, Manesar, Faridabad and Sohna, but these are yet to be approved by the Haryana Government. The Haryana Mass Rapid Transport Corporation (HMRTC) is the nodal agency for executing these lines.
