Metro Rail is a high-speed rail system that carries passengers within a city. Metro Rail was introduced to enable the busy people of the city to move from one place to another quickly avoiding traffic jams. Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, is one of the largest and most densely populated cities in the world. That is why the Bangladesh government has started the work of launching metro rail in Dhaka city.
This is Dhaka Metro Rail, whose official name is Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). Once completed, it will be capable of transporting 60,000 passengers per hour and 5 lakh a day. At present, a part of it has been completed and trains have been started for transporting passengers from Uttara to the Agargaon section. Dhaka Metro Rail will ease the lives of people living in the capital and will play an important role in the economy of Bangladesh.
