Rapid Metro-Gurgaon, the country’s first privately financed metro rail service, will be opened to commuters tomorrow. An announcement to this effect was made by Sanjiv Rai, MD & CEO, IL&FS Rail Ltd, here today.

Rapid Metro Gurgaon line will be opened to commuters from 6:05 am till 12:20 (midnight). Five fully automated trains with a frequency of 4 minutes would be run between six (currently five) stations.

The launch of Rapid Metro Gurgaon is likely to boost connectivity within the cyber city. It is expected that about 30 per cent of the existing road traffic will move to Rapid Metro, thereby reducing travel time and traffic jams for commuters on the NH-8, Gurgaon and Delhi. Company officials said Phase I of Rapid Metro had entailed a cost of Rs 1,088 crore.
