Transport in Delhi

Delhi Transport Department is entrusted with the responsibilities of providing efficient public transport system in Delhi . The Delhi state transport efficiently connects the city with other states of the country and also ensures transportation within every corner of the city. Delhi’s most of the commuting requirements are catered by DTC and DMRC. Delhi’s transport system has ensured and worked towards strict implementation of eco-friendly CNG lead transport for the city, so most of the city’s public transport like taxis, buses and to a certain extent private cars are also fuelled by CNG.

Public transport system of Delhi has been facing problems of high traffic density and growing population, forcing a continuous need to improvise the transport facilities. Government Transport Department in Delhi is already in talks to pick up the pace of construction to improve infrastructure and enabling the spread of CNG and LPG vehicles. Apart from this many measures are under process to improve and design the solutions of transport problems of Delhi.

Local transport in Delhi


Buses in DelhiDelhi Transport Corporation is the government owned public transporter of the city who took over the bus services in the state in 1948. The DTC buses operate on all the inter and intra-state routes of Delhi. DTC connects all the parts of city through its buses that are serviced at a fair frequency. DTC services provide both AC (Red Bus) and Non AC (Green Bus) buses at very cheap rates.


Auto Rickshaws of DelhiThere are plenty of auto-rickshaws functioning all over the city. Auto-rickshaws are a cheaper option to take trip inside the city. However it will be a herculean task to get an auto-rickshaw driver to charge on the meter rate. So it is important to understand the auto tariffs. The base rate for first 2 kms is Rs 25 and for every km traveled thereafter, there is a charge of Rs 8.

Metro Trains

Metro Rail in DelhiEver since DMRC has introduced its first metro rail in Delhi, the metro rail transport has attained the reputation of an excellent mode of transport among the localities. The tickets are charged from Rs 8 to a maximum of Rs 30 to travel anywhere on the metro route. The trains run at a frequency of 8 minutes to 12 minutes. Delhi Metro also has a special Airport Metro Express line to connect to Delhi Airport in just 18 minutes and a check-in facility before getting on the train. One can go through DMRC website to refer to the routes and fares defined for travel.

Taxis and Cabs

Taxis are available at the taxi stands, airports and railway stations. These local taxis run on CNG and hence are black yellow and green in color. They charge at Rs 25/- for first kilometer and 14.00/- per kilometer for Non-AC taxis and Rs 16.00/ per kilometer for AC taxis, for every additional kilometer. The radio cab business has picked up a lot of popularity in Delhi, due to the convenience of booking and doorstep pick and drop facility with option to travel in the car of one’s preference. These cabs work on slightly higher fares than the usual taxis.
