"Metro" New Delhi Transportation Tip by Willettsworld

New Delhi Transportation: 89 reviews and 86 photos


Delhi's metro system is amazing compared with all the other city transportation options. It has to be seen to be believed - clean, quick, cheap, easy and hassle free it only has one down side and that is - yep it gets very crowded! There are currently 3 lines with plans for another 7 in the pipeline with one of these connecting the airport to New Delhi Train Station.

The prices range from just Rs6 for a short journey to about Rs22 for longer ones. You can also buy a Tourist Card in which there are two types - 1 day which costs Rs70 and 3 days for Rs200. Personally I only used the metro a few times to get from Pahar Ganj to Connaught Place (or Rajiv Chowk as its known on the metro) so just bought single fare tickets which come in the form of a token. Tickets and tokens are bought at counters which are manned. Be warned that the metro only runs from between 6am to 10pm.

Type: Subway/Metro
