"Delhi Metro Trains in India consists of six lines with a total length of 156 kilometres (97 mi) with 132 stations of which 31 are underground. It has a combination of elevated, at-grade and underground lines and uses both broad gauge and standard gauge rolling stock. DMRC operates around 2,700 trips daily between 6:00 and 23:00 running with an interval of 2.5 minutes between trains at peak frequency. The first line of the Delhi Metro was inaugurated by Atal Behari Vajpayee, the then Prime Minister of India on December 24, 2002. The trains have four coaches, but there are plans to shift to six coach trains to increase capacity. Trains operating within the network typically travel at speeds below 80 km/h (50 mph), and stop about 20 seconds at each station. The first coach of every train is reserved for women only.
