Prime Minister Narendra Modi essentially inaugurated the extended parts of the Bengaluru metro’s Purple Line between Kengeri-Challaghatta and KR Pura-Baiyappanahalli on Friday, a few days after it was made available for commercial use in response to popular demand.
In response to public demand, the two metro line portions were unofficially inaugurated on October 9 and made accessible to the general public. The Purple Line, which runs between Challaghatta and Whitefield for a total distance of 43.49 km, is the Namma Metro line with the longest operational length. The Purple Line has 36 metro stops and travels the entire route in 76 minutes for a price of 60.
The total operational length of the “Namma Metro” has grown to 74 km, with 66 stops, and its daily ridership has surpassed 750,000, according to Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL).
The prime minister claimed during his speech at the occasion that the Purple Line will increase connection and help thousands of commuters. “With the Purple Line operating, the connectivity to Bengaluru’s IT hub will be improved, and two metro stretches will give the people of Bengaluru a swift travel experience.”
