Due to the maximum rush on the Ameerpet-Hi-Tec City route, one more train is being introduced as 14,000 passengers travel during the peak hours in the morning. There will be one more extra train trip per hour from Ameerpet to Hi-Tec City and the additional train will be continued till the reversal facility at Hi-Tec City is completed, after which the frequency of trains will be increased as per requirement, stated NVS Reddy.

NVS Reddy, the Managing Director of HMRL, said that with the opening of Ameerpet-Hi-Tec City route, arrangements by software companies for their employees to travel by metro and gradual introduction of more shuttle services from various locations of the city was resulting in increasing commuter numbers on Hi-Tec City route.
On November 2017, Hyderabad metro was launched with limited connectivity. Out of the original Phase I length of 71.16 km across three corridors (red, blue and green lines), a stretch of 56.5 km and 48 stations (out of the proposed 64) is currently functional. This is helping commuters like Radha Kola, who works in HITEC City.
In the first week of june, The Hyderabad Metro Rail has introduced self-driving cars to improve first and last-mile connectivity. The HMRL tied up with Zoom cars and hired 25 metro cars at the Miyapur station. The cars of Mahindra company are being run to Shamshabad airport and Madhapur from Miyapur. Passengers getting down at Miyapur station can make use of the cars to reach their destination. The passengers will be charged Rs 40 per hour for the car. To avail the services, commuters can download Zoom car app and upload your driving license.
