Bangalore Metro Map: Bangalore, also known as India’s Garden City and a technology hub, is home to a thriving startup community. However, the city’s traffic has also been on the rise. To address this issue, the Bangalore Metro Map, also known as Namma Metro (meaning “Our Metro” in Kannada), was planned back in the 2000s.
Currently, two metro lines, that is Green and Purple one, are operational, connecting almost the entire city. Construction is underway to connect parts of the city that are not yet linked by the metro or for proposed metro lines. Namma Metro sees a ridership of around 2.5 lakh to 3.5 lakh per month.
Since the launch of Bangalore Metro, property prices in the city have increased, with a high demand for properties located near metro routes. Property prices within 500 meters of Namma Metro have increased by 10-15% in the past few years.
Reports suggest that residential property land costs have increased by 11% and commercial property land costs by 19%. In recent days, five malls have been built near metro stations, including Prestige Falcon City, Mantri Square, One MG Mall, and Brigade Orion.
Namma Metro map, a successful model for the Bangalore Metro Map Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), has made a significant contribution to reducing carbon emissions in Bangalore City.
It is the first metro railway project in India to be commissioned with 750 volt DC third rail traction on standard gauge and has become a major environmental addition to the city.
