Hyderabad Metro Rail is set to be a ‘high density’ project reckoned in terms of number passengers per hour. It is expected to carry 60,000 Passengers Per Hour in Peak Direction (PPHPD).

Hyderabad Metro Rail is going to be a ‘high density’ project in terms of carrying capacity of passengers per hour. It means that when operational the elevated rail system can carry up to 60,000 Passengers Per Hour in Peak Direction (PPHPD).

The three car trains will have a capacity of 1,000 passengers per trip, and six car trains after wards will have a capacity of 6,000 passengers with a frequency of five minutes a train.

The metro rail is designed and fabricated to suit the need that the frequency of the trains will be one very five minutes and can be made less to three minutes.

As metro rail plies on a high density trains, the depots and stations are going to be the hubs of activity. This is because the metro rail corridors are in a central issue in the cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. This is useful in reducing the load on the roads because studies show 30 per cent of daily trips by commuters is avoidable.
