The line crosses the most congested parts of Delhi covering outside Delhi, north Delhi through central Delhi and south Delhi, and finally Gurugram. Over 330 access points have been installed at these 37 stations to provide uninterpreted Internet access to commuters. This free high speed Wi-Fi service will prove to be a special boon for students traveling to and from the North Delhi campus of the University of Delhi.
Passengers can access Wi-Fi by selecting âYES DMRC FREE WIFIâ on their phone, entering their number and email ID to receive an OTP.

Upgrading and installing the desired access points is quite a difficult task in already operational trains. On a trial basis, the DMRC had introduced a free Wi-Fi installation in the trains of its airport line, but services were suspended due to the constraints induced by Covid in 2020 and they are now in the process of being restored. ”
He added that passengers can contact the helpline number (9541693693) in case they encounter an issue with the Wi-Fi at any of the metro stations.
