Built in Savli of Gujarat, the rake was brought via road to Agra, and unveiled by UPMRC managing director Sushil Kumar.

The first rake of three coaches was unloaded at Agra Metro Rail Depot on Monday.

Built in Savli of Gujarat, the rake was brought via road to Agra, and unveiled by UPMRC managing director Sushil Kumar.

Kumar said, “There will be a total of 28 trains for Agra Metro and six trains for the priority corridor, initially. Painted in Yellow colour, coaches are equipped with ultra modern technology and seamless design.”

All the metro trains are equipped with regenerative breaking system, and will save upto 35 percent energy. The trains are also fitted with carbon dioxide based sensors which saves energy. With the increasing load of passenger trains the CO2 based sensors provides an ambient temperature.

The trains will be managed and operated from Agra Metro depot, and will be operated in automated CBTC mode (Comminication Based Train Control), making the train operations absolutely safe and efficient.

Trains will be tested on the 1 km long test track built inside the depot for all equipments and safety features.

Agra Metro Rail Project was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 7, 2020.
