A boon for the people of Delhi and NCR region, Delhi Metro is a rapid transit system serving Delhi, Noida and Gurgaon. Commuting within the city has become an easy and time saving mode of transportation. One of the greatest benefits of metro is that now people don’t have to bear the pain of getting stuck in traffic jams, and it has also reduced the pollution level. The metro network has six lines with a total length of 161 km and 135 stations out of which 31 are underground. The metro has a combination of elevated, at-grade and underground lines, and uses broad gauge and standard gauge rolling stock.
Delhi Metro project was undertaken by DMRC. This project has really improved the transport system of the city. In fact it would be no exaggeration to say that Delhi metro has become a lifeline for the people of Delhi. Safety and security measures are also taken at the stations. Apart from this, facilities like air conditioned coaches and stations, gift shops, ATMs, cafeteria, toilets, etc. are also provided by the metro.
The first line of Delhi metro started in the year 2002 and was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee. The first phase of the project was completed in 2006 on budget and almost three years ahead of schedule, an achievement described by Business Week as "nothing short of a miracle".
The metro runs daily from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm. And the interval between trains is just 3 to 4 minutes which saves the travelers from waiting for a metro for long.
The metro is being built in phases. As of January 14, 2011, the whole of Phase-I and parts of Phase-II are complete, with the network comprising five lines with 135 metro stations and a total length of 161 km (100 mi). In the coming years more phases will be added to it.
