All Delhi Metro Lines, Except Red, To Have First Coach Reserved For Women


The Delhi Metro Officials on Monday announced that the first coach in the moving direction of Delhi metro trains will be reserved for women on all lines except for the Red Line.

Until this time, the first and the last coach were used alternatively for the ladies which apparently depended on the up and down line.

The DMRC reported,

“The first and the last coach at the terminal stations of Line 1 (Red Line-Dilshad Garden to Rithala), Line 5 (Green Line Inderlok/Kirti Nagar to Brig. Hoshiar Singh), Line 6 (Violet Line- Kashmere Gate to Raja Nahar Singh), Line 7 (Pink Line-Majlis Park to Mayur Vihar Pkt-1 & Trilokpuri-Sanjay Lake to Shiv Vihar) and Line 8 (Magenta Line- Botanical Garden to Janakpuri West) were alternately used as ladies’ coach on the up and and down lines respectively.”

The introduction of the new system has been made in order to ensure convenience and less time consumption of the travellers maintain uniformity among all the metro stations across the DMRC network.

This will be implemented in the Red Line too but only after it is extended up to Ghaziabad.

The Official stated,

“Necessary announcements in the trains and at stations regarding this will be made to ensure smooth transition to the new arrangement. Also, the floor graphics and the ‘Women Only’ hanging signs are being removed and fixed at all the stations of these lines.”
