Design of the Mumbai Suburban Rail Map


Design for People: 

Mumbai suburban rail is one of the busiest rapid transit systems in the world — operating more than 2000 train services and carrying more than 7 million passengers daily. Rail map plays a critical role in providing the travel related information to help commuters navigate and guide them towards informed decision making prior to the journey. Need was for a well designed Rail Map.

Since the first Mumbai Rail Map launch in December 2013, the project has grown due to the perseverance of a motivated team, and the encouragement and feedback from the people of Mumbai.


After completing the Version 5 of the Mumbai Rail map, it was tested at Dadar and CST Railways stations with commuters with permission from central Railways and support of Railway board Delhi and IIT Bombay. The current version 6 of the print map included many of the Insights from the user feedback.


Updated Version 6 of the map in 5 languages - Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Urdu and English

    Good work! A very complete exploration and user feedback journey.

  • F. Menezes

    Is there a high-resolution image of the map that we can download, in English (but possibly in all languages)?
