The MMTS services had earlier been stopped in March 2020 when the entire country went into lockdown during the first wave of COVID-19 infections, to prevent the spread of the disease. Over a year after the first lockdown, the MMTS resumed operation from June 2021 which was a relief to many using the service. The MMTS was first introduced back in 2003 and is used by many commuters in Hyderabad on a daily basis.
