Metro –Itself:

The City growing big & bigger the traffic is growing exponential to it. The Metro is a must & savior for the public. Over & Above, if you have a Metro card, it would still save your time.The Metro card can be availed at any metro station by 100 rs deposit & further charging it.Every time you use a smart card for traveling, you would be charged 10% lesser compared to Counter price for the Metro Token.  The Metro is designed such a nice way, that you can travel with in the city with much convenience, fast & ultimately connected. There are no chairs or resting places. This keeps the crowd keep on moving.

Airport Metro Express:

This Metro is operated by a Private Player (I suppose it is ADAG Reliance). They charge INR 80/- for one passenger to travel from New Delhi Railway station to Airport Terminal T3. I feel this is very much acceptable compared to other modes of transport. The Airport Metro Express & the Local Metro interconnection happens at New Delhi Metro station.

The City check in is very convenient, you can check-in your luggage in New Delhi Metro Express & you have a 2 hrs break time, for roaming around.

Note: This check in opens only for Flights departure within 6 hrs

80 Rs will be charged, which you will be using for commuting till T3 Airport. The same token will be used for traveling though the Metro.
