number of private cab operators or cab sharing service
providers, including Uber, Ola and Easy Cabs, have also started
operating in Delhi.
Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses: With a humongous fleet
of AC and non-AC buses, DTC is the biggest public transport
operator in Delhi. You can hop on to one of its buses to get
around Delhi for surprisingly minimal fares. These buses connect
almost all the parts of Delhi, ideal for short distances. While
metro rails are a more comfortable option, DTC buses connect
even the relatively far-flung areas of Delhi. You can buy
tickets from the conductor after boarding it.
Metro: Delhi Metro is, clearly, the quickest, affordable and
one of the best ways to get around Delhi. The network boasts of
AC coaches, one coach in each metro being reserved for women,
and an average frequency of one metro every five minutes.
Getting Around New Delhi
Delhi, the capital of India, is a kaleidoscope of sorts.
Spread over 1484 sq km, the National Capital Territory of Delhi,
also holds the distinction of being the largest state (in terms
of land area) in the country. One of the rare few cities to tread
the line between contemporary and vintage with such aplomb, Delhi
is home to centuries old buildings as well as a skyline that is
increasingly bursting with skyscrapers.
