  1. The low hanging fruit for RRTS is connect Jewar Airport to IGIA via Faridabad (one halt connecting voilet line and Indian Railways at Old Faridabad) and Gurgaon (Rajiv Chowk/City Center or / IFFCO Chowk) and connect to Alwar RRTS though track switch instead of change of trains. This can benefit flyers from Faridabad, Gurgaon and those who need to commute between the two airports in NCR to commute to the respective airports.
    Secondly, a hub station need to be developed, which allows flyers to commute to terminals 1,2 and 3 and later terminals 1,3 and 4 by intra terminal shuttle. preferably from the same platform.
