Line utilisation indicates how many times passengers have travelled on a particular line or portion of a line during their overall journey on the Metro system.

In the two months since Delhi Metro resumed operations across all its lines, the number of passengers has seen a sharp jump. According to data shared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), the average daily line utilization went up from 6,19,242 in September to 12,24,848 in October.

Despite the increase in footfall, measures to keep Covid at bay remain firmly in place.

A DMRC spokesperson said, “Even though the crowd is increasing gradually, measures such as sanitisation, thermal checks, and cashless transactions are in place. Operators ensure there are no more than 50 passengers getting on to one coach.”

Previously, each train would carry 250-300 people. “People have been very conscious since the Metro restarted operations. They might have to wait in line for their train. This is why we have been asking them to keep half an hour in hand so they do not get late,” said the spokesperson.

Rajiv Chowk, which continues to be one of the most crowded stations in the city, witnessed peak-hour rush on Saturday evening. Since only one gate is open to passengers, long queues were seen outside the station.

Inside the station, passengers headed to the sanitization points with no compulsion. Similarly, those who waited on the platform stood in line and tried not to bump into each other
