In a historic moment for Indian transportation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially inaugurated India’s first semi-high-speed regional rail service. Just one day before its highly-anticipated launch, the rail service underwent a significant rebranding, transitioning from RapidX to the newly christened NaMo Bharat, a name that resonates with the essence of this pioneering project.
In a momentous stride towards the future of Indian railways, a significant development is on the horizon. The commencement of passenger operations on the 17-kilometer priority section of the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) Corridor is scheduled for Saturday. This historic event marks the introduction of the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) in India, a groundbreaking initiative set to transform the way people commute and usher in a new era in Indian transportation.
Connecting Sahibabad and Duhai Depot Stations
The 17-kilometer priority section of the RRTS Corridor is set to connect the Sahibabad and Duhai Depot stations. This stretch represents the inaugural phase of a comprehensive project designed to provide efficient, high-speed, and eco-friendly transportation services, ultimately spanning the entire Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor.
The RRTS: Redefining Indian Railways
The Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) is a revolutionary concept in Indian rail transportation. It is conceived to be an intercity rail network that will seamlessly connect India’s National Capital Region (NCR), offering a high-speed and efficient mode of travel. RRTS is engineered to alleviate traffic congestion, reduce travel time, and promote sustainable, eco-friendly commuting solutions.
