Enhancing multimodal transit in Hyderabad

L&T Metro Rail Hyderabad

    Elevator pitch
    We set out to improve the first/last mile connectivity for Hyderabad Metro commuters. That involved eight new skywalks connecting metro stations to special economic zones, malls, parking areas, railway stations, and flyovers, as well as the integration of ticketing with intercity buses.
    Project description

    The success of any mass transit system lies in its effective implementation of multimodal integration. For that on the Hyderabad metro network, we planned to reduce total commute times and enhance customer convenience.

    Innovative features

    We aimed to reach our goals through the following measures:

    • 100 metre pedestrian walkways on either side of all metro stations
    • 55 EV charging point across the metro network
    • 8 skywalks connecting major metro stations to special economic zones, malls, parking areas, railway stations, and flyovers
    • Bus stops at all stations
    • Feeder services on 47 routes
    • Information on commutes in the entire city, using the multimodal integration available on our mobile app
    • Integrated ticketing with intercity buses
    • Park and ride facilities at all metro stations
    • Rent-a-bike/car or taxi facilities available at major metro stations

    Impact features

    Affordable and hassle-free option for first/last mile connectivity in the form of rent-a-bike/car and taxi facilities.

    Introduction of one-stop shop transit mobile app for integrated ticketing & multimodal information.

    New feeder services on 47 routes – predictive modelling was used for route finalisation.

    The one-of-a-kind single pier structure of stations provides ample space for bus stops and park and ride facilities, as well as pedestrian walkways and EV chargers.
