<p>The prime minister officially lay the cornerstone for the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor on March 8, 2019.</p>
<p>On Friday, Modi will officially open the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS Corridor’s priority segment at the Sahibabad RapidX Station in the state of Uttar Pradesh. In addition, he will signal the departure of the RapidX train that runs between Sahibabad and Duhai Depot to inaugurate the RRTS in India.</p>
<p>“India’s first Regional Rail, RAPIDX, is an innovative transportation system being used for commuting throughout the country. Its first corridor, linking Delhi, Ghaziabad, and Meerut, is 82 km long and is now being built, according to a National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) official.</p>
<p>The 17 kilometer segment between Sahibabad and Duhai Depot is the most important piece, and passenger service will begin there on October 21—the day after the prime minister inaugurates it. Sahibabad, Ghaziabad, Guldhar, Duhai, and Duhai Depot are the five stations in this stretch, the official added.</p>
<p>These fully air-conditioned RAPIDX trains, which have an operating speed of 160 kmph, will include a variety of commuter-friendly amenities for a secure and comfortable regional commute, including ergonomically designed 22 transverse seating, wide standing space, luggage racks, CCTV cameras, laptop/mobile charging facilities, dynamic route maps, and an auto-control ambient lighting system.</p>
<p>The RAPIDX trains will run from six in the morning until eleven at night.</p>
<p>The spokeswoman said, “A train will initially be available every 15 minutes, though the system can further increase the frequency based on requirement.”</p>
<p>Each RAPIDX train has six carriages with a seating capacity of 1,700 passengers and room for standing passengers as well. Each normal coach has 72 seats, while the premium coach has 62 seats.</p>
<p>Every RAPIDX train has a carriage adjacent to the premium coach that is designated exclusively for female passengers. Additionally, special needs passengers and elderly passengers have seats designated in the other coaches.</p>
<p>One “premium coach” featuring a variety of extra commuter-friendly facilities, including reclining seats, coat hooks, magazine racks, and footrests, will be included on each RAPIDX train. The premium coach will be the first coach to depart from Delhi bound for Meerut and the last coach to depart from Meerut bound for Delhi.</p>
<p>Only a premium lounge built at platform level will provide access to the premium carriage. According to the spokeswoman, it will include cushioned chairs and a vending machine where passengers may purchase food and beverages.</p>
<p>A train attendant will be assigned to each RAPIDX train, and they will play a crucial part in familiarizing customers with the amenities offered on the train and guaranteeing their safe and secure trip. The attendant will be positioned in the first-class carriage and will help any passengers who need it.</p>
<p>The National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) Card, a paper QR code-based travel ticket, ticket vending machines, and the NCRTC mobile application, “RAPIDX Connect,” are all accessible ticketing choices for commuters.</p>
<p>The final carriage of the train features a separate area for wheelchairs and stretchers to provide easy transportation on the RAPIDX trains.</p>
<p>“The guiding idea of the RRTS project being carried out by NCRTC is multi-modal integration. According to the spokeswoman, RRTS stations have been deliberately designed to allow for construction as near as feasible to the current forms of public transportation.</p>
<p>Three RRTS corridors, including the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut, Delhi-Gurugram-SNB-Alwar, and Delhi-Panipat corridors, have been prioritized for Phase-I implementation out of the eight RRTS routes that have been selected for development in the NCR.</p>
<p>More than Rs 30,000 crore will be spent on the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RRTS, which would link Delhi and Meerut in less than an hour by passing via the cities of Ghaziabad, Muradnagar, and Modinagar.</p>
<p>The RRTS network will include substantial multi-modal integration with railway stations, metro stations, and bus services in accordance with PM GatiShakti National Master Plan. These game-changing regional transportation options will increase regional economic activity, enhance access to job, educational, and healthcare opportunities, and significantly reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.</p>
