Traveling By Monorail In Mumbai
If you like the idea of riding on a monorail Mumbai is one of the places to go; the city on India’s west coast has the 6th largest system in the world. Opened in 2014, the system’s one line stretches for just over 19 km with 17 stations along the route. The monorail was designed partly to replace the city’s slow and often unreliable bus service, with its delays and regular overcrowding. Another factor was that many of the roads in Mumbai just couldn’t be widened easily to accommodate more traffic. In contrast to the slow-moving buses, the monorail trains reach speeds of almost 80 km per hour, enabling commuters and tourists to cross the city in much less time. A ticket on the monorail costs less than $1, regardless of distance and it’s a great way to see the city while getting to your destination.
