The new system shall also serve as a feeder system for high capacity Metro. With a capacity of 300 passengers, the funding of the new light transit system shall be given to the states.

The path shall be distinct from the usual road traffic and with fencing on either side. The proposed Metrolite will be able to bridge the gap required in still smaller cities, by providing a rail-based mass rapid transit system.
