Delhi Metro Route Map Guide

Delhi Metro is a mass transit system serving Delhi and other cities in the National Capital Region. The system contains almost 350 km of tracks at ground level, above the ground as well as underground. Its 254 stations record a daily footfall of around 47 lakh (4.7 million). Delhi Metro was built in three phases, wherein the first two phases consisted of radial lines and the third phase consisted of a circular and a semi-circular line. The trains travel at up to 80 km/h, stopping at each station for 20 seconds. The trains, comprising 4, 6 or 8 coaches, have a frequency of 1­–4 minutes during peak hours and 5–10 minutes during non-peak hours. While some lines use broad-gauge (1676 mm) tracks, others use standard-gauge (1435 mm) tracks.
