Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is planning to start the full pledged services from March end in 2018.
In last November 2017 the monorail serviecs are stopped after fire incident. Now MMRDA is waiting for the security certificate from commissioner of railway safety, once it gets cleared the services will start. This time the total corridor from Chembur to Jacob circle is ready for monorail service.
In the two phases one is from Chembur to Wadala and another phase is Wadala to Jacob circle. In the first phase monorail the commuters count is 17000 approximately with the 8.5km distance, now the total distance is 20km approximately and MMRDA is sure the ridership will be increased to 2lakh per day. Total stations will be 17. When the monorail servies started from Chembur to Wadala the fares are very low, however now the fares are increased to overcome the losses occurred. Earlier the minimum fare was rs 5/- now the minimum fare is 10 rs and earlier there were 7 slabs and now it became only 4 slabs the maximum being 20 rs now. This time smoke detectors also installed in monorail trains for safety purpose.
