How to book the ticket
There are 3 ways to book the ticket. The staff issuing the ticket are very friendly and professional.
- Ticket counter – There is at least 2 ticket counter at every station. You can mention your destination and book your ticket with cash.
- SBI Mumbai Metro – You can apply for a Mumbai Metro card at the counter at any station. You will need to fill out a form and provide ID proof like a Driving license, PAN Card, or Aadhar card and a one-time top-up of Rs. 100 and top up in multiples of Rs.100 thereafter. The global transit limit is Rs.2000. tap your card at the entry barrier and move towards taking your metro; it is simple.
- Ticket Vending Machine – There are many ticket vending machines at every station, but I found more non-operational.
Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is a heavily populated metropolis on India’s west seaside. A financial hub, it’s India’s biggest city. On 16 April 1853, India’s foremost train started its operation. Mumbai trains are the busiest railways globally and carry approximately 2.2 billion passengers yearly.
The current addition of this metro will enable Mumbai to interconnect between Western and Central Mumbai and help passengers reach their destination in the shortest possible time. Mumbai Railways is the most economical and fastest mode of transport compared to road travel, hence the preferred choice of travel by most Mumbaikars.
