New Delhi :

Aiming to attract more commuters to its Airport Express Line, Delhi Metro has increased the frequency of trains, with the peak hour service now available every 10 minutes.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), which manages the 23-km premium corridor that connects New Delhi Railway Station to Dwarka Sec 21 via IGI Terminal T3, today said, the frequency has been increased with the addition of a train.

“In order to further encourage commuters to use the line, the frequency of trains will be 10 minutes throughout the peak hours i.e. 8 AM to 8 PM,” it said.

Earlier, the frequency of the trains on this line varied from 10-15 minutes.

Trains on this line are available from 4.45 am till 11.30 pm.

Last year, fares were reduced by up to 50 per cent to attract passengers to use the corridor, also known as the Orange Line.
