The Meerut Metro (Hindi: मेरठ मेट्रो) was a proposed rapid transit system in the city of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, India. The feasibility study of the project was completed by RITES in June 2015. Since government has merged the line 1 of meerut metro into RRTS, it is likely to be completed around 2025 (Phase 1) with RRTS project. This will save at least 6500 crore rupees. At the other side UPMRC has floated tenders for the detailed design of Meerut metro line 2.

Cost

Cost of construction is estimated at 11,540 crore (US$1.4 billion).
