The authorities of Delhi Metro have planned to go driverless on Pink and Magenta lines from the next year. It will move to unattended train operations (UTO) using a state-of-the-art signalling technology called communication-based train control (CBTC).“Roaming train attendants would be multi-skilled personnel, apart from being trained as drivers too,” a DMRC official said. He further added, " Pink and Magenta lines are planned to be operated in the UTO mode in a phased manner. DMRC strives for a safe and reliable UTO metro operation during revenue service, and that is why it has planned to commission its revenue service in stages from Grade of Automation 2 (GoA2) to GoA3, and finally to GoA4, which is completely unattended train operation."
