Information

Nashik Metro, also known as Metro NEO, with 2 electric trolleybus lines totaling 32 kms is a bus rapid transit system proposed to be built in Nashik, Maharashtra jointly by the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha-Metro), City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) and Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC).

Electric bus coaches on this unique system will be 25 meters long, run on rubber wheels and have a maximum capacity to carry 250 passengers at a time. Overall system capacity is estimated at 15000 PPHPD (Passengers Per Hour Per Direction). Coaches will draw power from an overhead electrical (OHE) system on the elevated portions and use battery-power while operating on the at-grade (road) sections.

Per Maha-Metro’s MD Brijesh Dixit, the system can be upgraded to a rail-based light rail transit (LRT) system in the future if ridership goes up substantially.

Nashik Metro Phase 1’s detailed project report (DPR) was prepared by RITES Ltd. and approved by Maharashtra’s cabinet in August 2019. As of March 2020, its approval is pending on the Central Government. The state government hopes to receive a loan for its development from the European Investment Bank (EIB).
