The Delhi Metro will run 17 additional trains starting Monday during rush hours.

DELHI_METRO_RUSH_HOUR_7147f“From tomorrow (Monday), there will be a total of 17 additional trains making 104 extra trips during off-peak and evening peak hours on all lines except Line-5 (Inderlok to Mundka) and Airport Express,” the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said in a statement on Sunday.

All four coach trains on the busiest lines
Line-2 (HUDA City Centre to Jahangirpuri),
Line-3 (Dwarka Sector 21 to NOIDA City Centre) and
Line-4 (Yamuna Bank to Vaishali).

“The move is aimed at de-congestion the evening peak hour passenger rush and also to encourage passengers to avail metro services during off-peak hours,” it added.

The DMRC increased the number of coaches from 640 to 1,076 – an increase of almost 70 per cent – across all networks between 2010 and 2014 in the wake of passenger load of about 25 lakh per day, the statement said.
