The first look of RRTS (Regional Rapid Transit System) train was unveiled today by Shri Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary, Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs in presence of Shri Vinay Kumar Singh, Managing Director National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) and other senior officials of MoHUA, NCRTC and Bombardier India. The unveiling of the rolling stock design of RRTS train was digitally attended by NCRTC employees and the media fraternity.
The air-conditioned aerodynamic RRTS trains will be lightweight with radiating stainless steel outer body. Each coach will have six plug-in type sliding doors, three on each side for ease of access and exit (Business Class will have four such doors, two on each side). The sleek and contemporary train design has been inspired by New Delhi’s iconic Lotus Temple which will have lighting and temperature control systems to enhance the passenger experience and reduce energy consumption. Transverse seating with adequate legroom, optimized aisle width with grab handles and rails for a comfortable journey for standing passenger, overhead luggage rack, mobile/laptop charging sockets and onboard Wi-Fi for onboard infotainment are some other key features.
