Driverless Metro to run on Pink Line by mid-2021
DMRC said on its official Twitter account that by mid-2021, the driverless metro will start operating on the 59 km long Pink Line. According to DMRC, another main corridor of the Metro Pink Line (Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar) will also have driverless operations by the middle of 2021. A large number of people ride the metro on the 59 km long Pink Line connecting Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar in Delhi. Meanwhile, the driverless metro has been allowed to run on the Pink Line.
Driverless Metro started on Magenta Line last week
Last year, on 28 December 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave the country’s first driverless metro on the 27-km magenta line and said that now our country has technically joined the select countries of the world. People ride in a driverless metro on the Metro Magenta Line going from Janakpuri West to the Botanical Garden. It is known that the 37 km long magenta line between Janakpuri West to Botanical Garden has already been made a driverless metro.
India joins these countries
With the introduction of the driverless metro, India has now come under the category of countries like Denmark, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Hungary, Switzerland and Britain as well as the US and Canada, where driverless metro trains run. India has created history by counting the number of technically rich select countries.
