The Greater Nashik Metro or Metro NEO[1] is a proposed rapid transit system in the Nashik metropolitan area.[2] The system is proposed to reduce traffic congestion as well as provide direct connectivity to Nashik city from its Suburbs. The Greater Nashik Metro will connect suburbs of Nashik city like Deolali, Nashik Road, Upnagar, Nashik Airport, Sinnar, Igatpuri, Gangapur, Traimbakeshwar, Dindori, Bhagur, Niphad, Adagaon, Ghoti and Girnare.

This project is implemented and operated by Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited with the help of Central and state government, Nashik Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (NMRDA) and Nashik Municipal Corporation. It will be India's first Rubber-tyred metro. Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis in an interview stated that feasibility report will be created soon. Greater Nashik Metro will be implemented by MahaMetro and funded by CIDCO.[citation needed]
