    • How it is different from the metro 
    • Specific location of RRTS stations in Modinagar 
    • Provision of parking facilities at RRTS stations 
    • The timeline of commencement 
  • Participants not only expressed pride in having India’s first regional rail in Modinagar but were also excited about its ability to provide rapid, reliable, safe, and seamless connectivity to Delhi and other parts of NCR.
  • During the Q&A session, some of them expressed happiness that RRTS will bring Modinagar closer to various opportunities. 
  • Their children will have improved access to Delhi’s educational institutions, without the need of migrating to Delhi.
