Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan is set to become a major transit hub with three corridors of the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) from Delhi to Meerut, Alwar and Panipat converging here and connecting the National Capital Region through integrated transit channels.

National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), the body executing the RRTS is a joint venture of Government of India and the states of Delhi, Haryana, U.P. and Rajasthan. NCRTC with its RRTS project aims to provide fast, reliable, safe, comfortable and efficient transport system that would help in the overall economic development of NCR.

What is a Rapid Transit System?

A Rapid Transit or a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system is a network of transportation system that is exclusive and cannot be simply accessed by anyone. In simpler terms it is a transportation system that has an entry point and exit point, which a person will have to go through to access the transport system, unlike open systems like buses and tramps (Two words: Like Metro). Transportation system that carry a huge number of people like metro, railways, subways, tube, U-Bahn or underground are all, examples of MRT.

How is it helpful?

The metro system in the NCR region has been hailed as the most wonderful thing that has happened to transportation. A God-send. Now imagine a transportation system that is similar to the metro network but is 3 times faster, more efficient, and more secure. Not only will this system cut down heavily on the commute time of thousands of daily travelers, but will also provide a system that can be accessed to cover long distances.

Along with the three corridors, Sarai Kale Khan is also expected to experience the footfalls of the commuters travelling through the Hazrat Nizamuddin railway station, Sarai Kale Khan ISBT and the upcoming Hazrat Nizamuddin metro station. Hence, safety and efficiency will become the utmost important things for the said transit network.

To manage the heavy crowds, it is proposed that these RRTS will have separate platforms for entry and exit, which will make the travel experience much more relaxing and safe for commuters, optimizing the passenger flow and getting rid of the harrowing experience people have with transit systems like that of Delhi’s Rajiv Chowk, also cancelling any potential of a stampede or a similar situation.
