Delhi Metro Service Resumes After 169 Days

Delhi Metro services have been resumed from 7 am today after being shut for almost 6 months due to Covid-19 lockdown.

In phase 1, metro services were resumed on Yellow Line connecting Samaypur Badli to Huda City Centre and Rapid Metro in Gurugram.

The resumption of Delhi Metro services on Monday delivered a sigh of relief to the city travelers. However, some travelers were unaware that the metro is open only for the Yellow line today and this lack of awareness made them wait for the metro at Blue Line.

Train services will be available in two shifts, from 7 am to 11 am and 4 pm to 8 pm. The rest of the corridors will open in a graded manner five days later from September 12. The operation time will expand gradually and services will be restored to the usual 6 am to 11 pm from Saturday.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has requested everyone to take all the necessary precautions while commuting.

Taking to Twitter, the Chief Minister wrote;

“I am happy that the metro services are starting from today. The Delhi Metro has made good arrangements. We all should take precautions and not neglect them.”

However, Delhi’s coronavirus case tally reached 1,91,449 with 3,256 new cases and 29 deaths reported on Sunday.
