New Delhi. The Department of Transport, Government of NCT of Delhi and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in association with Toyota Mobility Foundation (TMF) and World Resources Institute of India (WRI India) has launched the Station Access and Mobility Program (STAMP) to improve the multimodal integration of the Metro. The Delhi edition has been launched today. This will benefit the passengers traveling in the metro.

Ashish Kumar, Chief Secretary and Commissioner, Transport Department, GNCTD said, “With the development of Delhi, the demand for effective mass transit is also increasing continuously, due to which the need for modern technologies has increased. It is imperative to develop integrated mobility-as-a-service solutions to enable future transportation in the city. For this, various stakeholders have to adopt a proactive approach. Our partnership with DMRC and TMF and STAMP of WRI India is an important step in this direction which will provide environment friendly, flexible and multi-modal transport services to Delhi.

Delhi Metro is one of the most firmly established mass transit networks in India and has regularly been awarded the gold standard for metro connectivity in the country. As a mature metro network, it has been striving to provide customers with unmatched quality of service experience and efficiency in its operations from ticketing system to last mile connectivity. In such a situation, this approach of Delhi Metro is in line with the objectives of STAMP.

DMRC Managing Director Vikas Kumar said, “We are extremely happy to partner with STAMP and invest in enhancing connectivity with Metro. Through the STAMP Challenge, DMRC is creating smarter and safer modes of transport for commuters and our last-mile partners. The work of STAMP across the country will improve connectivity with Delhi Metro. In the times to come, we will continue our efforts to make transport easier in the city.

STAMP Delhi will work in three main areas. First, it will create a mobility-as-a-service platform that will enable passengers to plan their public transport travel across different transit modes on a single interface. Second, the platform will work to leverage the existing last-mile services such as shared mobility, autos, e-rickshaws to benefit commuters from more efficient on-demand services. This interface will provide essential information to drivers in disadvantaged areas, inform them about the increase in demand, so that they can provide better last-mile services to the passengers.

Stamp Delhi is the seventh edition of the programme, launched by TMF and WRI India in December 2016 to facilitate high quality last mile connectivity to various cities in India. Its main objective is to promote public transport, multimodal mobility, data-oriented planning and carbon-reducing technologies. The program uses the Challenge Framework that identifies modern and sustainable business models to improve access to transportation.

STAMP is working on data-enabled solutions and strategies as part of its efforts to provide clean, digital and interconnected transport to the city of Delhi. Its main objective is to facilitate mass transit on the roads of the capital and to provide seamless services to the passengers of Delhi Metro. The solution will benefit all stakeholders from commuters to last mile operators and transit agencies. STAMP will partner with last mile operators to enhance metro connectivity especially in areas where e-rickshaws and shared transport facilities are limited.

Pras Ganesh, Executive Program Director, Asia Region, Toyota Mobility Foundation said, “When we launched STAMP in 2016, we wanted to ensure better multimodal mobility in congested areas. Now, having completed this process in 6 cities, we have proven technology for state-of-the-art last-mile connectivity solutions, providing an integrated and seamless transportation experience to commuters in line with the Government of India’s vision of Mass Rapid Transit. STAMP has endeavored to understand mobility in every city through a collaborative approach, to ensure green last-mile connectivity with the Metro. STAMP Delhi is another effort of ours in this direction, which will further empower mass transit with modern technologies and mutual cooperation.

Madhav Pai, Executive Director, WRI India Ross Centre, said, “As Indian cities are investing more in metro rail, they must also invest in building an empowering environment for modern enterprises that make last mile travel seamless and seamless for commuters. Make it cost-effective.
