“NCRTC has partnered with Rapido to provide feeder services from Sahibabad and Ghaziabad RRTS stations of the 17km priority section of Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut rapid rail corridor. These will facilitate last mile connectivity,” an NCRTC official said on Thursday.

The NCR Transport Corporation has tied up with aggregator Rapido for feeder services from Sahibabad and Ghaziabad stations of the 17 km section of the Delhi-Meerut rapid rail corridor that is currently operational.

Rapido services that will be available to commuters include auto rickshaws, 2-wheeler taxis and four-wheeler taxis. Commuters can book these services through Rapido app.

“NCRTC has partnered with Rapido to provide feeder services from Sahibabad and Ghaziabad RRTS stations of the 17km priority section of Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut rapid rail corridor. These will facilitate last mile connectivity,” an NCRTC official said on Thursday.

Apart from ensuring connectivity, these services will be fast and eco friendly, the official said.

The aggregator, the official said, has designated its employees at the Sahibabad and Ghaziabad stations of Namo Bharat to help familiarise commuters about the services available and the entire booking process.

“These captains will provide information about the available services and guide commuters on various features. Commuters could find the necessary assistance conveniently located within the designated areas of the stations,” the official said.

The priority section (Sahibabad to Duhai Depot) of the rapid rail corridor was inaugurated last year in October. Ghaziabad City Transport Services has been offering electric buses from the five stations to localities in the city, but few opt for them.

Last year, NCRTC had selected 17 bus routes to connect the stations with other parts of the city, but it did not get any bidders for the project. In its proposal, the corporation had chosen most routes for feeder buses from Sahibabad, followed by Ghaziabad station, and Guldhar station.
