New Delhi, Aug 5 IANS | 2 months ago

The Delhi Metro Tuesday said it recorded the highest ridership of over 27 lakh commuters in a single day Aug 4, surpassing the previous record set July 21.


The number of passengers travelling by the Metro Aug 4 was 27,05,807, breaking the record of July 21 when 26,84,132 commuters used Metro Rail services, said a statement from the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

The highest ridership of 10,23,245 was witnessed on the Blue Line connecting Dwarka Sector 21 in west Delhi to Noida/Vaishali in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.

According to the DMRC, steps like increasing speed of trains and the number of coaches to six and eight on select routes along with the reduction in interval between two trains have led to the increase in ridership.
