The Delhi Metro will run 40 additional trips on weekdays starting October 25, the DMRC said on Tuesday.
The move came days after the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP)-II measures were invoked to combat pollution in the national capital.
“The Delhi Metro will run 40 additional train trips on weekdays (Monday-Friday) across its network starting Wednesday,” the DMRC said in a statement.
“This has been planned to increase the use of public transport among passengers across Delhi-NCR,” it said.
According to the DMRC, over 4,300 trips are undertaken by the Delhi Metro every day.
