Guwahati Metro – Information, Route Map, Fares, Tenders & Updates

Menu: News & Construction Updates | Overview


Guwahati Metro is a 61.40 km urban Mass Rapid Transit System (MRTS) with 4 lines totaling 54 stations proposed to be built in the city of Guwahati, Assam.

Guwahati Metro Phase 1 project’s Feasibility Report and Detailed Project Report (DPR) was prepared by RITES in January 2016. This DPR and the formation of the Guwahati Metro Rail Corporation Limited (GMRCL), to execute the project, was approved by Assam’s state government on February 26, 2016.

In January 2017, the new government’s state cabinet reviewed the project and suggested to modify the DPR with additional lines connecting Dharapur with Guwahati Airport and North Guwahati with AIIMS in Phase 1 itself.

As of March 2020, RITES has been tasked with preparing a Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) & Alternative Analysis (AA) Report for Guwahati. After the approval of these reports, the DPR for Guwahati Metro will be modified and prepared accordingly.
