Congrats Mumbaikars. Metro is a fine way to commute. I use it daily.
The speed is immaterial as stoppages are frequent. But it is cool inside even in peak summers. Guys can look at ladies between the mobile news sessions and mp3 songs session and pass time.

sm,Thanks for making post on Mumbai metro...I had no clue about this..my last visit was in year 2009 and I don't remember seeing any work related to Metro. Not sure if this will ease load of local trains? Ticket price is also important factor..hope poor and middle class can afford it.
