Regional Rapid transport system

News: Recently, The Prime Minister has inaugurated the first leg of the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS).

About RRTS:
• RRTS is a new rail-based, semi-high-speed, high-frequency commuter transit system.
• It aims to ensure balanced and sustainable urban development through better connectivity and access across the National Capital Region(NCR).
• RRTS trains will travel significantly faster than metro trains. These will operate at a speed of 160 km/hour but are designed to be able to run at speeds up to 180 km/hour.
• It is also known as Namo Bharat.

Who built Namo Bharat?
• National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), which is a joint venture company of the Central government and the governments of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, has constructed the RRTS or Namo Bharat.
• Eight corridors will be developed under the RRTS project which includes: 1) DelhiGhaziabad-Meerut 2) Delhi-Gurugram-SNBAlwar 3) Delhi-Panipat 4) Delhi – Faridabad – Ballabgarh – Palwal; 5) Ghaziabad – Khurja 6) Delhi – Bahadurgarh – Rohtak 7) GhaziabadHapur and 8) Delhi- Shahadra-Baraut.

How is it different from existing metro system?
• RRTS is different from metro as it caters to passengers looking to travel a relatively longer distance with fewer stops and at higher speed.
• RRTS is different from conventional Railway as it will provide reliable, high frequency, point to point regional travel at high speed along dedicated path way.

Benefits:
• RRTS will be integrated with various modes of transport like Airports, Railway Stations, Inter-State Bus Terminals, Delhi Metro Stations etc. providing seamless connectivity.
• With fast connectivity with satellite towns, the urbanization burden in Delhi will reduce.
• It will reduce usage of fossil fuel powered vehicles for ferrying people from the outskirts to the city.
• RRTS will increase the share of public transport resulting in a reduction in traffic.
