Hyderabad: The Jubilee Bus Stand (JBS) Metro station stands out as Hyderabad’s tallest Metro station with tracks so tall it can reach the fifth floor of a building. Metro commuters, surely, can enjoy a great view of the city.
Services between the new Metro line that connects JBS to Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) will be launched on 7 February by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao at 4 p.m. The Metro line will have nine stops and will cover a distance of 11 km.
Metro offcials said the tracks at JBS station are tall, at a height of 63 ft, becasue Metro corridor 2 which connects JBS to MGBS is built above a flyover near the YMCA in Secunderabad. Metro corridor 3, which connects Nagole to Raidurg, is also built above the same flyover.
The officials said there was no need for a Metro time-table because the trains will run from morning to night at a gap of every six minutes. During rush hours, the wait period reduces to 3.5 minutes. The Metro rail makes about 710 trips every day carrying about 1,000 people per trip. About 50,000 travellers take the Metro every hour.
