The highly anticipated Tricity metro project, covering a 39-km metro rail network in Chandigarh, Mohali, and Panchkula, has received approvals from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA). This ambitious mass rapid transport system (MRTS), excluding the heritage sectors from sectors 1 to 30, is estimated to cost INR 10,570 Crore. In addition to the metro rail network, the project includes the construction of bus terminals, depots, and improvements at busy intersections, among other infrastructure enhancements.

The comprehensive mobility plan (CMP), which received in-principle approval from Chandigarh, Haryana, and Punjab governments in April 2023, sets the foundation for the Tricity metro project. The final metro network will be implemented in two phases, covering Chandigarh, Mohali, Panchkula, Zirakpur, New Chandigarh, and Pinjore.

The first phase, scheduled between 2027 and 2037, will encompass key routes such as Sarangpur to Panchkula ISBT, Rock Garden to Zirakpur ISBT via Mohali Industrial Area and the airport, and Grain Market Chowk in Sector 39 to Transport Nagar in Sector 26. The subsequent phase, planned for development after 2037, will introduce four additional routes.
