New Delhi: The DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) is planning to set up a subsidiary firm for last-mile connectivity from Metro stations.

The Corporation will not only decide on a new & profitable business model for Metro feeder buses but will also have powers to regulate other modes of last-mile transportation, including e-rickshaws.

More Information:

  • A proposal to set up the subsidiary firm was passed by the DMRC board in a meeting earlier this month.
  • A Metro official said,“Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, in a meeting held in June, had asked the DMRC to explore starting a subsidiary company that would run allied services including last mile connectivity.”
  • The primary focus would remain on creating an efficient feeder bus system, the official added.
  • Modalities of the company are yet to be finalised.
  • The feeder buses could run on cluster basis & that a viability gap funding can also be considered if the DMRC finds the model more successful, Delhi government officials said.
  • The company is also likely to rationalise operations of 3-wheelers, e-rickshaws & Gramin Sevas around Metro stations.
  • The move will help DMRC, as it has repeatedly expressed its unwillingness to run feeder buses because of limited powers in its hands, officials said.
