MMTS or Multi-Modal Transport System is a commuter rail system in Hyderabad, India. It was built on an equal expenditure basis by Government of Andhra Pradesh and the South Central Railway and is operated by the latter.

It started its operations on August 9, 2003. The first phase covers a distance of 43 km of Secunderabad - Hyderabad - Lingampally (28 km) and Secunderabad - Falaknuma (15 km) at a cost of Rs. 178 crore (USD37 million).



MMTS is, presently, running 84 services a day, covering 27 stations, connecting Secunderabad, Nampally, Falaknuma and Lingampally, over the existing railway network. Around 100,000 commuters use MMTS everyday. the Diesel Multiple Units (green local trains) compliment the MMTS (white-blue trains) along few other routes like Bolaram (up to Manoharabad), Umdanagar etc.


There are First Class, General, and a separate Ladies compartment. A combined pass is issued by APSRTC buses and MMTS. So buying a single pass will help in travelling by bus as well as the train.

This is a preferred public transport for people working in and around HITEC City, Madhapur, Kondapur, Manikonda & Gachibowli. All the major IT companies run shuttle service for their employees from and to HITEC City. Else taking a shared auto is other option available.

Contact Information

The information regarding the MMTS Trains is hard to get from the standard helpdesk numbers of Indian Railways. One would need to call the stations directly to find out about them.

Proposed Second Phase

The second phase of MMTS has been proposed to cover the following routes[2]:

  • Falaknuma to Shamshabad Airport (20 km)
  • Secunderabad - Medchal - Manoharbad (41 km)
  • Secunderabad - Ghatkesar - Bhongir (46 km)
  • Moula Ali –Sanatnagar (21 km)
  • Moula Ali-Malkajgiri-Sitaphalmandi-Kachiguda (10 km)

Technical details

  • ICF has manufactured Electric Multiple Units for the Hyderabad MMTS services. In a first ever endeavour of its kind, Railways and the State Government have agreed to equally share the cost of the rolling stock, as part of the cost sharing arrangement for the MMTS project.
  • The challenge of coming up with a design meeting the expectations of new generation was taken up by ICF in dead earnest. Based on its own enriching Jan Shatabdi experience earlier during the year and discussions with the Hyderabad MMTS authorities, ICF has come up with a new design of EMU stock which fulfils the expectations of this rapidly growing twin-city.
  • The coaches have been provided with an ergonomically designed drivers cab with all vital equipment being arranged to be within easy reach of the motorman on an aesthetically pleasing design of prefabricated FRP drivers desk.
  • Some of the trains
