Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s first driver-less train during a virtual function. The train will run on the Metro’s Magenta Line at its own pace and the train connects Janakpuri West in West Delhi to the Botanical Gardens in Noida.
Along with the inauguration of India’s first driverless train, Pt Modi also launched the “National Common Mobility Card”. The card allows users to pay for travel, toll charges, retail purchases, and withdraw money using a card.
Talking about the driver-less train, these trains will be fully automated and this train will eliminate the possibility of human error. Prime Minister Modi said that our country is now moving rapidly towards smart systems. Today, metro services are limited to 14 cities, but by 2025, we will extend this service to 25 cities.
