New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday flagged off the first RAPIDX train under India’s first Regional Rapid Transit System RRTS from Sahibabad in Uttar Pradesh. The Prime Minister also inaugurated the priority section of the RRTS corridor which will cover the distance of 17 kilometers connecting Sahibabad to ‘Duhai Depot’ with stations at Ghaziabad, Guldhar and Duhai on the way. Mr Modi boarded the Regional Rapid Train which has been named Namo Bharat and interacted with the co-passengers who shared their experiences, including on how this train service will have a positive impact.

The Prime Minister will preside over a public programme in Sahibabad where he will address the gathering shortly. He will also dedicate to the nation two stretches of east west corridor of Bengaluru Metro today.

The RRTS is a state-of-the-art regional mobility solution comparable to the best in the world. In line with the Prime Minister’s vision to transform regional connectivity in the country through construction of new world class transport infrastructure, the Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) project is being developed. RRTS is a new rail-based, semi-high-speed, high-frequency commuter transit system. With a design speed of 180 Kilometres per hour, RRTS is a transformational, regional development initiative, which is designed to provide high-speed trains for intercity commuting every 15 minutes, which can go up to a frequency of every 5 minutes as per requirement.
