The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RapidX (Rapid Rail) is a highly anticipated project that is expected to revolutionize the way people travel in the region. With its high-speed trains and state-of-the-art facilities, the RapidX is set to provide a seamless and comfortable travel experience to commuters.
In a bid to make the journey safer and more comfortable for women, the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) has decided to reserve one coach in each train for women. This means that only female passengers will be allowed to sit in the second coach from the front.
The decision has been welcomed by women commuters, who have long been demanding a separate coach or dedicated seats for women in trains. With the introduction of the reserved coach, women will be able to travel without fear of harassment or discomfort.
The NCRTC has also taken several other measures to ensure the safety and comfort of women passengers. The trains will be equipped with CCTV cameras, panic buttons, and other safety features. The RapidX stations will also have designated areas for women, including waiting rooms and toilets.
The first phase of the RapidX project is set to begin next month, with the trains running from Duhai Depot to Sahibabad station. The project is expected to be completed in several phases, with the entire Delhi-Meerut corridor expected to be covered by 2025.
Overall, the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut RapidX (Rapid Rail) is a much-needed project that will not only improve connectivity but also provide a safe and comfortable travel experience for commuters, especially women. With dedicated coaches and other safety measures, the NCRTC is sending a strong message that women’s safety is a top priority.
