Delhi Metro free rides for women! In the coming days, Delhi Metro women commuters may avail the benefit of the Delhi government’s fare exemption scheme if their boarding or de-boarding metro station lies in the national capital.
What this means is that if women commuters are travelling from Delhi to any part NCR by metro, their ride will be free. Similarly, if women are travelling from an NCR station and de-boarding the metro at a station in Delhi, then their ride will be free. The announcement was made by Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot recently.
The trains under the Delhi Metro network run across the national capital and also connect the NCR destinations including Faridabad, Gurgaon, Ballabhgarh and Bahadurgarh in Haryana as well as Noida and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh.
A couple of days ago, the Delhi government had proposed to enable free rides to women commuters in public transport buses (DTC) as well as Delhi Metro trains in view of their safety.v
