During the Commonwealth Games, the games venue visitors will not have to stand in queues to purchase their Metro tokens. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) will provide special foils attached with games tickets, which will facilitate their travel by the Metro, free of cost.
“The Commonwealth Games tickets, which will be date, venue and event specific, will have two detachable foils for to and fro journey by Metro. These foils will have the same unique serial numbers, which will be mentioned on the games ticket and will be valid for that venue and date only,” said DMRC spokesperson.
The manual gates at the stations will be used for the entry and exit of the commuters holding these games tickets. Guards and volunteers from DMRC will verify the foils by perforating them and will collect them from the commuters at the exit station, said DMRC officials.
The Delhi Metro will provide easy connectivity to 10 out of 11 Commonwealth Games venues. These will include Games Village, Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi University, Thyagaraj Complex, Siri Fort Sports Complex, National Stadium, Indira Gandhi Sports Complex, Talkotora Indoor Stadium, Yamuna Sports Complex and R. K. Tennis Complex.
