What is Metro Neo?
Metro Neo is operated to solve the traffic problem in small towns. Metro Neo can be run with two to three coaches. Since it runs only on this road, it runs on rubber tires instead of iron wheels on the track. Each of its coaches can easily carry 200 to 300 passengers. A Metro Neo coach is 12 meters long and 2.5 meters wide.

What is Metro Light?
Metro Lite is an even smaller version than Metro Neo. Which will run on the road just like the Neo, but has a capacity of 100 passengers per coach. Metro Lite can be run with one to three coaches and can carry a maximum of 300 passengers at a time. Metro Lite will also run on electricity like Metro Neo for which power will be supplied through overhead wires on its route. Since both these systems run on electricity, pollution will also be reduced.




Neo, the station of the light will be different than the metro
Metro Neo and the station of metro light will be like a separate bus station than the station of the metro train. It does not require much space and the station is prepared by making corridors like BRT in between on the road or by making corridors on the pavement. It will not have facilities like automatic ticket machine, baggage scanning system, metal detector. However, CCTV facility will be provided.
