Delhi Metro Rail Corporation’s eight-coach metro train service will start in November.

After successful trial runs for nearly four months until October, DMRC will introduce bigger trains on lines 2 and 3 that cover the Gurgaon-Jahangirpuri and Noida-Dwarka stretches, respectively, in November.

“Though, the date is yet to be finalised, the eight-coach train service will begin next month,” said Raj Kumar, director (operations) of DMRC. The trains are expected to make the lives of commuters easier on the two busy lines that together service about 1.4 million people daily.
