Easy travel in Delhi Aug 24, 2011
If you are seeing Delhi on your own then using the Delhi Metro is a must. The metro lines cover the major parts of the city allowing for hassle free travel. More lines will be added over the next three years to improve coverage of the city.

All signs and announcements are in hindi and english. When you go buy a token you have to specify the final destination. Remember to hold on to your token as it is needed to exit the station at the end of your journey.

You can avail a 1 day (Rs 100) or 3 day (Rs 250) tourist card which allows for unlimited travel. The metro website ( also has a tourist section which shows some of the capital's tourist sights and the nearest station.

The first compartment in every train is reserved for women only. During rush hour the compartments gets extremely crowded but train frequency is still very good. Expect a little (or a lot) pushing and shoving when boarding the compartment.

Tired of Tuk Tuk's, noise and traffic jams ? then give the Delhi metro a try ! this new network of transportation around Delhi came as a surprise to me. Its clean, safe, efficient, cheap and very easy to use. I caught the Metro from Connaught Place to Karol Bagh where my hotel was, all of 3 stops and it cost me only 8 rupees ! the same trip by Tuk Tuk cost me 60 rupees and took twice as long. You buy a token from one of the many ticket booths, swipe the token as you go through the barrier and when you exit the the other end just pop the token in the barrier slot to let you out. All the signs are in English and announcements on the train for the next station are in English, it couldn't be easier! Only one thing, the Indians haven't quite mastered the etiquette of getting on and off the trains yet so be prepared for some pushing and shoving!

Thanks for that. I didn't realise there was a metro system in Delhi! I am going to Delhi on 13 May so that really helps.
