New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today inaugurated the country’s first ever driverless train operations on the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line from Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden, via video conferencing at 11:00 hrs.
Modi also launched the fully operational National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) services on the Airport Express Line.
These innovations are going to herald a new era of travelling comfort and enhanced mobility for the National Capital Region (NCR)’s residents.
After starting driverless services on the 37 kilometre long Magenta Line (Janakpuri West-Botanical Garden), another major corridor of the Delhi Metro, the 57 kilometre long Pink Line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) will also have driverless operations by the mid of 2021.
The driverless trains will be fully automated which will require minimum human intervention and will eliminate the possibilities of human errors.
Delhi Metro has been a pioneer in introducing technology driven solutions for passenger comfort and this is another step in the same direction.
