Context: Continuously improving the service and operation of three automated metro lines in Hyderabad, India
Home to more than 10 million people, Hyderabad is the thriving capital of southern India’s Telangana state. To reduce traffic in this densely populated metropolis where over 800 new vehicles are put on the road every day, Hyderabad opened an automated metro network in 2017. The operations and maintenance contract was awarded to Keolis by the concessionaire, L&T Metro Rail. The contract encompasses 57 metro stations across three lines, as well as depots, track, signaling, telecommunications, ticketing systems and ticket sales.
To keep the longest overhead metro line in the world running smoothly, Keolis has rolled out a number of innovations in Hyderabad, India. By working to ease crowding, manage water resources, improve safety and more, the group is helping improve residents’ quality of life by offering a reliable, eco-friendly alternative to car travel.
