The Blue Line connects Dwarka to Noida and Vaishali and is one of the busiest segments of the Delhi Metro network. The Vaishali section branches off from Yamuna Bank, an intersection station.
The regular frequency of trains on Dwarka-Noida line is 2 minutes and 30 seconds, an official said, added,”Services between Yamuna Bank and Vaishali stations are being run in an independent loop with a frequency of around 5 minutes and 30 seconds through local control (at station level).”
Meanwhile, since January 1, the DMRC has reserved the first coach in the moving direction for women. The new system was for all the corridors, except the Red Line. Earlier, the first and the last coaches in the trains were reserved for ladies in many corridors.
The DMRC stated, “The first and the last coach at the terminal stations of Line 1 (Red Line-Dilshad Garden to Rithala), Line 5 (Green Line- Inderlok/Kirti Nagar to Brig. Hoshiar Singh), Line 6 (Violet Line- Kashmere Gate to Raja Nahar Singh), Line 7 (Pink Line-Majlis Park to Mayur Vihar Pkt-1 & Trilokpuri-Sanjay Lake to Shiv Vihar) and Line 8 (Magenta Line- Botanical Garden to Janakpuri West) were alternately used as ladies coach on the up and and down lines respectively.”
