If you are reading this while you’re stuck in traffic, it’s time for you to rejoice. Phase 1 of Namma Metro is now fully functional. For South Bangalore folks and people who want to explore that side but are generally shy or stuck in traffic for eons, it’s brilliant news.

The North-South corridor is named Green Line and the last leg that stretches 10.5 km connecting Sampige Road and Yelachenahalli Metro stations is operational from June 17.

As per BMRCL website, the last leg of the Green Line covers stations including Chickpete, Krishna Rajendra Market, National College, Lalbagh, South End Circle, Jayanagar, Rashtreeya Vidyalaya Road, Banashankari, Jaya Prakash Nagar, and Puttenahalli. Moreover, we hear that the journey that connects Nagasandra in North Bengaluru with Yelachanahalli in the South is expected to take 45 minutes. Good news, right?
