Kanpur Metro is moving towards becoming the shortest trial run metro in the country. Pune Metro covers 5 km in 30 months. Trial run was done at a distance. Whereas Lucknow Metro covered 6 km in 32 months. Trial run record was set at the distance. Kanpur Metro is making full preparations to break it. 9 kms in 24 months. Trial run will be done. It is also different because the distance will be more and the time will be shortest. Hardly anyone will be able to break this record in the country. The trial run is targeted in November-2021.
After checking and taking tickets on the first floor, the metro will be available on the second floor.
