DMRC to install improvised information signages at metro stations

NEW DELHI: Delhi Metro Rail Corporation to keep the passengers well informed about the metros & stations information, has decided to give all information at one single point with better visibility for passengers, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is currently undertaking the installation of the special kind of combined information signages at its Phase I & II Metro stations and also on all Interchange stations of Delhi Metro Network.  

These specific signages are aimed at helping the passengers with all Delhi Metro-related information including ticketing, system map, first & last train timings, Do’s & Don’ts, helpline numbers, facilities for Divyangjan, Lost & Found, other statutory information, etc.

These signages which are bilingual (English & Hindi both) will be LED-backlit at all the interchange and underground Metro stations for better visibility of symbols and words. All the elevated/at grade stations of Phase-I & Phase-II of the Delhi Metro network will also have similar non-backlit signages. 

These are being installed near the ticketing areas of the Metro stations so that passengers /general public have easy access to them and get benefited in terms of planning their journey alongwith knowing about general conduct in the Metro premises in the form of Do’s & Don’t’.

In all, over 400 such signages are being installed at 158 stations of Phase I & II and all Interchange stations.
