Delhi Metro's driverless train operations on the Pink Line flagged off
After Magenta Line, the Pink Line became the second Delhi Metro line to have driverless operations.
The Delhi government has launched driverless operations on the Delhi Metro's Pink Lane. Hardeep Singh Puri, Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister, along with Kailash Gahlot, Delhi Transport Minister, flagged off the train in a virtual ceremony.
After Magenta Line, the Pink Line became the second Delhi Metro line to have driverless operations. With a total of 96.7 km of automated train lines, Delhi Metro became one of the world's largest networks of driverless metros, and it was a historic occasion, said Mr Puri. He added that Delhi Metro's driverless network is the fourth largest in the world.
Durga Shanker Mishra, Housing and Urban Affairs secretary, reportedly said that the Pink Line from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar is an important line as it connects north and south of the city. He added that the service would be streamlined as the drivers won't have to wake up early to start Metro operations.
