How to get NMRC's Aqua Line to DMRC's Blue Line?
There isn't a direct interchange facility between Noida Metro's Aqua Line and Delhi Metro's Blue line. Also, you should keep in mind that NMRC Smart Cards will not work on Delhi Metro and vice versa. If you want to catch Aqua Line from Blue Line or do the opposite, you will have to get down at the Sector 52 metro station of the Blue Line, which will further get extended to the Noida Electronic City station, and reach the Noida Sector 51 station of the Aqua Line, covering a stretch of around 200 metres. However, for that, you will have to wait a little more as the Blue Line extension project is under construction. As of now, the Blue line starts from Dwarka Sector 21 and runs till Noida City Centre. Once the construction gets completed, it will be extended till Noida Electronic City covering Noida Sector 34, Noida Sector 52, Noida Sector 61, Noida Sector 59, and Noida Sector 62 before finally reaching Noida Electronic City.
