NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is going to introduce its first e-auto service with a batch of 50 autos which are to be launched from Dwarka Sector-9 station to provide last-mile connectivity to the passengers. DMRC took this decision considering the factor that its feeder buses are “less viable” due to “under-utilisation”.

“The e-auto service would be launched soon, first for Dwarka sub-city. The first batch of 50 e-autos will be launched from Dwarka Sector-9 station, and a total of 136 such autos will serve the sub-city. This is a step to boost last-mile connectivity for metro commuters,” DMRC chief Vikas Kumar said.

According to a senior official, after 136 e-autos planned for the Dwarka sub-city, another 663 e-autos would be soon rolled out in different areas. The first batch of 50 e-autos is likely to be launched from Dwarka Sector-9 station in the first week of August, he added.

Dwarka sub-city has 13 stations, including Dwarka Mor, Dwarka, Dwarka Sector-14 and Dwarka Sector-21 on the Blue Line. According to the DMRC website, there are four routes for Delhi Metro feeder buses — Kashmere Gate Metro Station to Harsh Vihar; Shastri Park Metro Station to Mayur Vihar Phase-III; Mayur Vihar Phase-III to Harsh Vihar and Vishwa Vidyalaya Metro Station to Shankarpura Burari.
