The proposed Mumbai-Hyderabad High Speed Rail Corridor is planned to run along major expressways, national highways, greenfield areas, and may pass through arterial roads of the intermediate city road network for high-speed rail connectivity between different cities along the corridor.

The fare structure is yet to be finalized but is expected to be 1.5 times the existing first-class AC fare on the Indian Railways’ current service.

The line’s official fare structure, prices and rules are expected to be finalized closer to the start of commercial operations. The maximum speed will be 350kmph and the average speed will be 250 kmph. Each train will be able to carry 350 passengers.
