About Driverless Train:
Last year the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s first ever driverless train operations on the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line (Janakpuri West – Botanical Garden) as well as the fully operational National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) services on the Airport Express Line via video conference.
- With the commencement of driverless trains on the Delhi Metro’s Magenta Line, DMRC entered the elite league of 7% of world’s Metro networks which can operate without drivers.
- The driverless trains will be fully automated which will require minimum human intervention and will eliminate the possibilities of human errors.
- Delhi Metro has been a pioneer in introducing technology driven solutions for passenger comfort and this is another step in the same direction.
