Getting Around Delhi

Delhi Metro Link

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is the newest addition to the public transportation in Delhi. It completed its first Phase of connectivity throughout West Delhi with links connecting New Delhi Railway Station and Old Delhi Railway Station, parts of North Delhi, East Delhi and Central Delhi. The second Phase promises to connect all parts of West Delhi to South Delhi, Noida and Gurgaon along with an express metro link to the Indira Gandhi International and Domestic Airport which should be completed by the end of 2010.

The Delhi Metro is the most affordable, safest and the most convenient mode of transport for tourists and travellers in Delhi. It has A/C cabins with electricity backup that runs through every metro station at an interval of 5 minutes and hence avoids the discomfort of you having to wait for long hours at the Metro Station saving time.
