Open Data

Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL) is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) formed for the implementation of Kochi Metro Rail Project. KMRL is a joint venture company with equal equity contribution of Government of India and Government of Kerala. In Phase-I, KMRL proposed to have 22 stations covering a distance of 25 km from Aluva to Petta. KMRL now has 16 operational stations covering a distance of 18.4 kms from Aluva to Maharajas College.

KMRL recognizes the criticality of transport services in a city in accessing education and economic opportunities and are in constant pursuit of improving our services for the citizens of Kochi. KMRL also acknowledges the importance of effective communication of information in making the metro more accessible. To further this goal, KMRL has made the metro information available for all. This data can be consumed by developers, entrepreneurs, academia and others to develop innovative applications on smartphones, feature phones, websites and other such platforms to assist commuters in making informed travel decisions. Making this data available can potentially trigger an ecosystem of innovation which can address requirements of different commuter groups.
