‘It is reiterated that actual utilisation of a Metro system is reflected from the number of journeys performed by a passenger in completing his/her journey by using one or more lines (passenger boardings or line utilisation) and not by ridership alone.
‘Therefore, the provision of sharing ridership figures is an interim arrangement, till all Lines are re-opened by September 12,’ he added.
To reflect the true utilisation of Delhi Metro’s network by passengers, the DMRC will revert to line utilisation (passenger journeys) figures after September 12 and no ridership figures will be shared, he said.
