Have a ticket to watch the Commonwealth Games? Get a free Metro rail ride to and from the Games venue.

People possessing tickets to watch various sports events during the Commonwealth Games in October need not buy separate tickets for travel in Metro.

Special foils, which will facilitate travel by Metro, will be provided with every Games ticket.

All a ticket holder has to do is just to give the detachable foils to DMRC volunteers at the manual gates at the stations.

DMRC volunteers at the stations will verify the foils by perforating them and will collect them from the commuters at the exit station.

Delhi Metro will provide easy Metro connectivity to 10 out of 11 venues of the Commonwealth Games 2010.

The veneues which will have Metro connectivity are: 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 RK Tennis Complex.

"The Commonwealth Games tickets, which will have date, venue and be event-specific, will have two detachable foils for up and down journey by the 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," DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dayal said.

Besides the ticketing facility, DMRC will also bring out a special Commonwealth Games booklet to provide all the necessary information to commuters during the Games.
