When the plan for Delhi Metro was first started in the year 1984, nobody had thought even in their wildest dreams that this is going to be one of the most used transportation media now. Now with a daily ridership of more than 1.6 million per day and 609.5 million people in a year, the Delhi Metro has become one of the fastest, cheapest and the most convenient ways of travel for all the denizens as well as for people coming from outside.
The Delhi Metro is now the world’s 13th largest metro station in the world and serves Delhi, Gurgaon and the National Capital Region which includes Noida and Ghazaiabd. With train stations connecting to almost each and every part of the country, the metro has now become one of the favorite ways to travel for people all around the country.
With the passage of time, there has also been a major change in the way the metro functions. Introduction of smart cards, double safety doors and extra, separate carriages for women has further facilitated the travel in the city. There are also several expansions underway in the city so that even far off places in Gurgaon can now be connected via the metro rails.
Latest News on Delhi Metro Rail says that the authorities are now trying out different safety measures including providing safety doors in all the metro stations to prevent people jumping in front of the tracks. Though there are securitymen present all over the stations, this is one problem that has been very hard for the metro authorities to contain.
