Moving around in Delhi was never so easy! Opulent trains slicing the heart of the capital on rail tracks and that too silently..it is obviously a fun to ride the new-born metro service in Delhi. The Delhi Metro Service is now the second rapid transit system in India, after the one in operation in Kolkata. Unlike the Calcutta Metro, however, the Delhi Metro has a combination of elevated, at-grade and underground lines that augments the pleasure of riding this rail system to a million times. Came into service on December 24, 2002, Metro is a dream come true for a lot of Delhi wallahs who had struggled for years in DTC buses and faced the rhubarb caused by auto rickshaw drivers. Besides, it has turned out to be a nice place to hang out with friends, sitting and chatting in a cool ambience.
Delhi Metro Inside View
Scheduled for completion in three phases, currently only the first phase is functional. The Metro trains run from 6 am in the morning till 10 pm at night with the frequency of trains varying from 6 minutes during peak hours to 15 minutes during lean hours. Channelised into three coloured lines, the Red Line connects Shahdara to Rithala (East Delhi), the Yellow Line connecting Vishwa Vidyalaya (North Campus) to Central Secretariat (Central Delhi) and the Blue Line connecting Barakhamba Road with Dwarka Sub City (West Delhi). Besides, timesaving and trust is what makes Metro a good alternative to any other transport system and a good happy family ride!
Fast criss-crossing the fabric of this sprawling city;
the Delhi Metro is changing the way people travel in Delhi. Soon, people
will get off the roads, opting to travel by the Metro, and Delhi will be
an even cleaner and greener city. The area above the Metro's underground
Connaught Place station is soon to be transformed into a beautiful park
with a central amphitheatre and emerald waterbodies. To explore the
unknown parts of the capital, get into one of those colourful lines. The
stations are designed opulently and gifts a feel of grendeur as you will
enter. As the train starts to move, you can see a completely new Delhi,
less daunting than the city usually is at ground level.
At Central Delhi, you can see stupa-like colonial monument domes, soaring high amidst lush greens. Towards the north-west, you can find the eminent Videocon Tower and the unmissable giant Hanuman, eternally covered in scaffolding. Ignore the urge to step down and sit tight, many more magics are yet to unveil before your eyes. As the Metro makes it way through unglamorously cramped lining the streets underneath, you can see a colourful moving Delhi traffic making its way below you, and sprawled DTC metrodepot lying cheek by jowl with pulsating malls and multiplexes, sprouted along the Metro route. All in all, a ride on Delhi's new Metro is going to promise you an extravagant ride, you will cherish long after.
