Rapid Metro to open by end of May
 

The Rapid Metro authorities have claimed that the network will be opened by the last week of May, insisting that almost 95% of the work is completed. The fare has also been finalized and it will be a flat fare of Rs 10 and the total time taken to complete one loop will be exactly 13 minutes.

The Rapid Metro authorities have claimed that the network will be opened by the last week of May, insisting that almost 95% of the work is completed. The fare has also been finalized and it will be a flat fare of Rs 10 and the total time taken to complete one loop will be exactly 13 minutes.

The Rapid Metro starts at Sikanderpur goes all the way around the Cyber City area and Moulsari Avenue and terminates at Sikanderpur again. There are a total of six stations on this 5.1 km network.

Talking to media, Pritam Kumar, senior vice-president (projects), Rapid Metro said that they will be able to meet the renewed target. Initially, the commercial operations were to begin by March end/early April but got delayed. "We are looking to start commercial operations by the last week of May; however, no date has been finalized as of now. The fare slab will be the same as of the DMRC. The work is almost complete and we are planning to invite the CMRS (Commissioner for Metro Rail Safety) for safety inspection and once that it achieved we will begin the operations," he said.

"The timings of our trains will be synchronized with that of the Delhi Metro and since we both are using the same fare system, commuters will do not have to purchase a different token to travel in our network. A commuter will have to exit our network within 170 minutes once he enters through the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gate, which again is similar to DMRC," he said.

"The idea behind this is that for example if a passenger boards the DMRC train from any corner of Delhi he should be able to complete his journey comfortably within the stipulated timeframe," he added.

Simultaneously, the Rapid Metro authorities have started the groundwork for the phase-III (north extension). According to authorities, an agency has been asked to prepare the detailed project report (DPR) to suggest the best route possible and the number of passengers expected to use this extension that will connect the DMRC line coming from Dwarka side.
