Delhi Metro to Provide Free Wi-Fi in All Trains and Stations
DMRC or Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is working on launching free Wi-Fi for all its passengers at all 187 stations and 250 + Km of track on its 222 trains. The service will be free to passengers and will be rolled out by the end of 2016.
Delhi Metro Network is amongst the largest Metro Networks in the world with ridership touching 3.5 Million in a day. With lines launching in 2016 which will also interconnect existing lines, daily ridership is expected to increase dramatically.
The current model is set to provide seamless connectivity via the Metro app or a Third party app which will also track your location and tell you wat station you are on or if your stop has arrived.
Earlier this year DMRC had also announced smart-tags which could be managed using their app to be reloaded and used to access train stations. The DMRC is trying to catch up with the modern world. Hopefully, their execution is as exciting as these launch announcements.
