Once operational, the yellow line of the Bangalore Metro, popularly known as the Namma Metro, will connect Phase II RV Road – Electronic City – Bommasandra and be fully elevated with a total of 16 stations including 5 Depots. RV Road being the terminal station will provide the interchange for the Green line. Namma Metro will contribute to reducing traffic congestion, fewer road accidents, and less pollution in the city of Bangalore.
