Trial Run of Delhi Metro’s New ‘driver-less’ Train Begins

The trial run of Delhi Metro’s swanky new ‘driver-less’ trains began today, setting the ball rolling on what promises to be a technological feat in the country’s public transport system in little more than a year, when they will run on ‘unattended’ mode.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu flagged off one such train equipped to travel on ‘Unattended Train Operations’ mode at the Mukundpur depot of metro’s upcoming Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar corridor (Line 7).

In their speeches, Naidu and Kejriwal insisted that metro was one of the best answers to the city’s commutation and pollution woes. Kejriwal thanked the Centre and termed DMRC as a ‘unique example’ of cooperative federalism.
