Nearly 14 years after it began its operations, ridership in the Delhi Metro breached the 33 lakh mark on Wednesday, the eve of Raksha Bandhan. Not just that, August so far has clocked nine of the 10 daily ridership records of the Delhi Metro.
On Wednesday, 33,61,911 people availed the metro, with the ever-busy Blue Line (Dwarka Sector-21 to Noida City Centre/Vaishali) recording the highest ridership with 12,03,915 passengers. On Thursday, 21.66 lakh passengers used the mass rapid transit system till 8 p.m.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) revealed that the Yellow
Line (Samaypur Badli to HUDA City Centre), recorded the second highest number of commuters at 11,68,410 on Wednesday, while 4,56,427 people took the Red Line (Dilshad Garden to Rithala).
The Airport Express Line, which surpassed the daily ridership mark of 50,000 for the first time last Friday, saw a ridership 48,160 on the eve of Raksha Bandhan. The previous year’s ridership record of 3,204,756 on August 28 was broken on August 8 this year, when 3,269,413 commuters hopped on to the metro.
The DMRC’s network currently spans around 213-km. It ran 106 extra trips on Wednesday in anticipation of this expected increase in number of users due to the festival.
“Besides, we are already running extra trips on Saturdays and Sundays during the month to account for the annual trend of an extra rush around this period,” said a metro official, attributing the surge in August to festivities, beginning of a new academic session in colleges and the monsoon.
