Soon people will be able to travel around Mumbai by monorail as the arrival of a new route is announced.

Travellers taking flights to Mumbai will soon be able to travel the city and get great views at the same time as it is poised to open its new monorail service.

A 19.5 km corridor of the new monorail network is due to open in the city between Jacob Circle to Chembur, with the service set to open later this year.

Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority(MMRDA) have announced the monorail will be split into two parts, with the Jacob Circle to Wadala section to open in the summer months, followed by the Wadala to Chembur by the end of the year.

“While Mumbai’s local train is the backbone of the city’s transport system and buses cater to areas where the local train is not available, Monorail and Metro will further strengthen the city’s public transport system,” a MMRDA official said.

People heading on flights to Mumbai in the coming weeks could be best served using public transport to get back to their hotel rather than driving as the city is set to host two wine festivals celebrating local produce.
