(ii) Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), New Delhi (S)

 

Scope and Objectives

To forecast the ridership on the proposed extensions of Delhi Metro to DMR towns of Faridabad and Bahadurgarh for horizon years 2011, 2016, and 2021.

 
Methodology
Secondary and primary data (within the Faridabad and Bahadurgarh towns) collected to upgrade the Traffic Zone System. The transportation models validated using the integrated public transport networks with generalized cost as the deterrence function. The travel demand for base year and horizon years (Public and Private Transport Trip Matrices) are synthesized using the models. The ridership on the proposed metro corridors is estimated with fare sensitivity analyses.
 
Present Status and Progress
The surveys, data analyses, and the estimation of the ridership has been completed. The draft final report of the study has also been submitted to DMRC. The discussions and feedback on the report is going on with DMRC.
 
Significant Utilisation Potential
The results of this study would be utilized to prepare the Detailed Project Report by DMRC.
