    NEW DELHI: Delhi Metro has been ranked second among 18 international Metro systems in terms of overall customer satisfaction in an online customer survey.

    According to a DMRC official, in the survey conducted among the commuters of those Metro systems by Global Metro Benchmarking Groups 'NOVA' and 'CoMET', Delhi Metro along with London DLR and Bangkok were the best three performers in the 'Net Promoters Score' (NPS) category.

    Under this category the survey analysed the likelihood of customers recommending the service to others on the basis of their satisfaction.

    More than 41,000 respondents gave their feedback worldwide in this survey conducted online through the websites and social media links of 18 major Metros of the world from April 28th to May 25th earlier this year. The Metro systems that participated in this survey apart from Delhi Metro were Hong Kong MTR, London Underground, Metro De Madrid, Paris RATP, Metro De Sandiago, Singapore SMRT, Barcelona TMB, Brussels STIB, Bangkok BMCL, London DLR, Istanbul Ulasim, Kualalumpur Rapid PL, Metropolitano De Lisboa, Montreal STM, Newcastle Nexus, Metro Rio and Toronto TTC.

    The NPS is calculated by the percentage of promoters minus the percentage of detractors (P-D = NPS).

    When asked to list out the three top priority areas, the respondents from Delhi along with 17 other Metros listed as 'availability' as the most important requirement. Only New Castle and Hong Kong selected 'Reliability' as their most important area.

    "Delhi Metro commuters rated reliability and crowding as the other two important priority areas," the official said.

    The survey was conducted as per the 'European Norm 13816' and the areas covered were availability, accessibility, ease of use, information prior to travel, information during travel, reliability, customer care, comfort, crowding, and security.

    DMRC is a member of the NOVA group of Metros which is a benchmarking community comprising of 17 metro systems (small and medium size metros) from around the world.

    It provides a platform to share experiences, ideas and good practices followed by member Metro systems across the world. It also helps in evaluating the performance of Metro systems by studying their key performance indicators. The forum is co-ordinated by the Rail Transport Strategic Centre (RTSC) of Imperial College, London.

    This year, DMRC hosted the NOVA Phase-17 Management Meeting in New Delhi from September 24-26. The meeting was attended by 11 NOVA member Metros including DMRC and two Indian observers' Metros (Bangalore Metro and Chennai Metro).

    DMRC will be elevated to CoMET (Community of Metros) Group of Metros. The CoMET is a group of 16 of the world's largest Metros. To qualify for becoming a member of CoMET, the average ridership should be above 20 lakh and the city should be the primary city of country.

    Where is the Metro of Sao Paulo City?? Only Rio participated in Brazil. And Metro Rio is a shit. Sao Paulo Metro, instead of that, is the best of Americas.

    Re: Delhi Metro is the second best Metro system globally.

    When I came to Delhi for the first time, there was no metro. I took auto from NDLS to Dwaraka and later from there to Noida. Even back then I had the opportunity to marvel at Delhi.

    Later, when I took the Metro, I saw Delhi from a completely different perspective. It was simply an awesome experience !!

    Re: Delhi Metro is the second best Metro system globally.

    The headline says: "Delhi Metro is the second best Metro system globally."
    The first line says: "the Delhi Metro has emerged as the second most popular Metro network in the world."

    And based on how the results were produced (online survey), I think the latter statement is more accurate.
