The NCR Planning Board has identified as many as 8 high-speed rail corridors which will be built in the coming years. The project is being implemented by the NCRTC. The rail-based Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) will reduce the dependence on road-based transportation like cars, bikes and diesel/petrol buses. In the first phase, three corridors - Delhi to Meerut, Delhi to Alwar and Delhi to Panipat - are being taken up for construction.
