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

Menu: News & Construction Updates | Overview


Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) Light Metro with 1 line and 19 stations is a Light Rail Transit (LRT) system approved to be built in the city of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), Kerala’s capital.

Trivandrum Metro’s Phase 1 project will be executed by Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Limited (KRTL), a special purpose vehicle of the government of Kerala. In January 2016, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was appointed the interim consultant, but quit the project in 2018 due to slow progress. The project in 2017 was put on hold due to its high cost and low ridership projections which were not in line with the Government of India’s new Metro Rail Policy.

A revised DPR prepared by the DMRC was approved by KRTL’s board in October 2020 and by Kerala’s state government in February 2021.
