New Delhi (New York): The nearly 59km-long Pink Line opened as a single corridor from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar a year ago, with the missing link at Trilokpuri finally being crossed.With the two separate stretches now functioning as one and connecting north, south, and east directly to northeast Delhi, the corridors ridership has increased by two and a half times in the last year.Due to the inaccessibility of land at Trilokpuri, one portion of the corridor, which is Delhi Metros longest, operated from Majlis Park to Mayur Vihar Pocket 1, while trains arriving from Shiv Vihar returned from Trilokpuri station.The result is a noticeable increase in footfall.

On average, 8.6 lakh commuters travelled from August 1 to 5, which is 1,71,855 commuters per day.The daily average passenger journey increased to 2,26,546 by September 2021, and with all Covid-19 restrictions on Delhi Metros' carrying capacity eliminated by February this year, the figure climbed to an average of 3,18,047 daily in March.More than 1.3 crore passengers took the Pink Line in July, an average of 4,19,938 commuters per day.The typical daily average footfall in the first year before the Trilokpuri section was 1,23,995.

After the missing link was connected, the number increased to 13,970 on a daily basis in July 2021, reaching 12,523.The interchange station saw a footfall of 50,142 in July 2022, an increase of 300%, compared to July last year.The section of the 12.58-kilometer Majlis Park-Maujpur corridor will wrap into a full circle once the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) completes the Phase-IV expansion.
