Benefits of Metro

On behalf of DMRC, CRRI conducted a study on the many non-economic benefits that were accrued since the Delhi Metro has started its operations in Delhi & NCR. As per the study, traffic volume on the roads has dipped after the operations of Delhi Metro started. Hence DMRC has contributed also towards the reduction in Air pollution, GHG Emissions, fuel savings, reduction in travel time, reduction in accident. The following table gives an estimate of direct & indirect benefit of Delhi Metro. The study is suggesting that dependency on other road based public transport system is reducing day by day.
