First things first, the Delhi - Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor will reduce the travel time from Delhi to Meerut to 1 hour only! No kidding peeps, you’d soon be able to cover the 82 kms long distance in just one hour as these high-speed, aerodynamic trains will be running at an average speed of 100 kmph. These trains will start at Delhi’s Sarai Kale Khan station and stop at Meerut’s Modipuram, covering 24 stations in between. So, you can zoom your way from Delhi to Meerut in a jiffy!

Yes, this rapid train will have a business coach to give you all the luxe feels while travelling. This coach will have a bigger, more plush seating space for luxurious, comfortable travel. The passengers purchasing tickets for this coach will be passing through the dual-automated fare collection gates that’ll lead to business lounges at the stations and the coach of the train, directly. WOW, now that sounds pretty cool! 

3. Airplane Feels On A Train

Oh, we can’t wait to check this out! So, this RRTS corridor will have reverse seating arrangements like you see in airplanes. The business class of the train will have ritzy seats whereas the general coaches here would have more standing room. And just like in airplanes, these rapid trains will also have flush-type doors to decrease the pressure inside. 

4. Travel Made Easy For All

Looks like the Sarai Kale Khan station is gonna be a major transit hub after this corridor comes to life. Apart from being the starting point of the Delhi - Meerut RRTS corridor, this station is also an inter-state bus terminal and will soon have a metro station as well. Looks like Sarai Kale Khan will become the next IT place for all the train commuters in Delhi! 

This corridor will also be connected to RRTS’s Delhi-Panipat and Delhi-Alwar corridor. Well, this was quite impressive and we can’t wait for this train to start super soon, can you?
