Understanding the Metro in Pune

The Metro as the only solution to any city's transportation woes is being touted in India. Pune also, has unfortunately come under this cloud. We say unfortunate, because of the many conditions that need to be considered before such a huge decision have not been considered, and the way the Metro is being planned will leave the city in shambles. We have been consistently making our opinion heard, in the form of articles in newspapers, research papers, conducting discussions and so on. This page is a collection of all such activities, as well as resources which will be updated so that the people of the city can understand the magnitude of such a decision, and decide for themselves its utility.
