New Delhi: In view of the ongoing weather scenario, the Delhi Metro has decided to run extra train trips across the Delhi Metro network from today. The revised trips to be effective from today are:-
The DMRC will be thus running 3317 train trips from tomorrow instead of 3131, an increase of 186 train trips to provide increased capacity to the public in this weather. These trips are increased by inducting trains from the operational maintenance reserve kept in the Metro train depots by optimizing the required maintenance schedule.
The Metro trains run very intensively nonstop from morning till late night throughout the year and therefore need regular maintenance and checkups. The train maintenance wing of DMRC has reworked the entire maintenance planning so that extra trains are available for performing more trips for the general public of Delhi-NCR.
As the weather condition in the city needs urgent addressing the DMRC has decided to implement the above plan with immediate effect from today afternoon which will result in an increase of approximately 80-90 trips today itself i.e, from 8th November 2017 (Wednesday)
Besides this, deployment of additional ticketing operators, customer facilitation agents, CISF personnel has been done to facilitate the passengers and their speedy frisking. A team of officers has been directed to monitor major stations for smooth traffic movement and monitoring of stations/line is also being done from the control room.
