We are privileged that multi-level car parking lots are coming up adjacent to New Delhi and Shivaji Stadium stations.
Reliance Airport Metro commuters can avail hassle-free car parking facility soon.”
The two busiest stations on the 22.7-km network register a footfall of more than 15,000 passengers. Currently, more than 20,000 people commute by the Airport Metro daily.
