The airport-city metro link is slated to be operational sometime next month. Meanwhile, there is another wallet-friendly way to commute to and from the airport. Delhi Transport Corporation is planning to start a bus service from different parts of Delhi to the airport. The starting points are: ISBT Kashmere Gate (North Delhi), ISBT Anand Vihar(East Delhi), Noida (Beyond East Delhi) and Rohini (West Delhi). There will be multiple stops for the first few kilometers to pick up passengers and then non-stop up to the airport.
Cold bottled water and newspapers will be available on board. One piece of baggage goes free. Ticket is at around Rs. 50.
The buses can be identified easily by their striking red color. When you land, just ask for DTC AC Bus Service. Once at the stop, state your destination and be on your way in comfort. For approximately $1.5. Happy ridin’
