According to sources Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday flagged off the first six car metro on the Green Line of the Namma Metro running between Nagasandra in the north and Yelachenahalli in the south of a Bengaluru. Meanwhile on the same day, two more six car trains were added to the Purple Line which connects Mysore Road and Byapanahalli. 



Furthermore before Monday, three existing six-car trains were running on the Purple Line. Until June 2018, all the metros running in Bengaluru were of three coaches leading to extreme cramping in peak hours. Reportedly the six car trains have a capacity of 2,000 passengers and are currently deployed in peak office hours to prevent cramping and the capacity of three car trains is 975 passengers at a given time.

Moreover BMRCL officials said that the new six car trains, when compared to the existing trains, are energy efficient by 15% and can automatically regulate temperature by sensing the ambient temperature. Accordingly by September, all 50 trains of Namma Metro will be converted to a six car train.
