Soon, Delhi and Meerut will be linked with a high-speed Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor – which means that you will be able to travel between the two cities in just 60 minutes!
This RRTS corridor, which has already got the nod from Uttar Pradesh government, now awaits clearance from the Delhi government. The train has been designed to run at a speed of 180 kmph. However, the average speed is likely to be 100 kmph.
At first, it will have 6 coaches including one business-class coach and one reserved for women. The RRTS will commence its journey from Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan and will stop at Modipuram in Meerut. En route the 82-kilometre distance between the two cities, the network will pass New Ashok Nagar, Anand Vihar, Ghaziabad and Modinagar. The RRTs will cover 24 stations in total, out of which 3 will be in Delhi.
