Patna Metro is one of the most awaited metro projects under construction in Bihar’s capital Patna. This will be the first metro rapid transit system in Bihar.
Bihar is the third largest state in India by population. Patna is currently the most developed city in Bihar, and its population is increasing rapidly. Most people from Bihar visit Patna for any medical emergency or for the best education. Metro is one of the best ways to decrease traffic on the road because most people think that the metro is the most consistent public transport system.

There are many places in Patna where population density is high, and it’s quite difficult to develop their broad road or any public transportation system, so the government has started working on developing the Patan-Metro route.
