Delhi’s main expressway, the Meerut Highway, is an overpass that connects the North and South Delhi districts of the city. You can’t get there from the city centre by public transport, so you have to park and walk the 7km. It is also only 1.9km long, so it is a very long walk, but you can make the most of the experience by taking a taxi or a bicycle.
It is a very pleasant (and crowded) walk, and it is also very scenic. I have come here many times with my family and friends, and I can always count on it being beautiful. This time though we came with a group of friends, as we were all on our way to a friend’s wedding.
Yes, this is indeed a very long walk. The most logical solution is to take a public transport to the city centre. But that has its downsides. People complain about the long walk, and even though the distance is small, if you take a train or bus, the train or bus is much shorter. So instead, I recommend taking a taxi or walking. This is especially true if you want to get off the main road.
I’ll admit I’m a bit of an optimist when it comes to public transport. But I’d like to think I’m an optimist, because I believe with all my heart that it should be a nice way to get around. I don’t like to see a long walk between my friends, nor do I like to see a taxi or a bus.
The expressway tolls are a fun way to get around the city for the same reasons. They create a sense of a “trailer park” that you can get from one place to the next without having to walk a long distance. In this case, the cars and trucks that get you from your hotel to your apartment, to the train station, to your apartment, to the bus station, are all within walking distance. A taxi ride can take minutes.
The expressway tolls are a great example of how a long-distance commute can be achieved by using a simple technology. In one of the previous articles, we talked about the taxi system here in Delhi. The city’s taxi service is very much like our own public transport, except that the vehicles are much larger and more expensive. The city’s taxis are basically small buses with a few passengers. The same technology can be used to create a very comfortable, long-distance commute with a car.
With a car, you can create a very long distance commute to anyone in Delhi whose address is in the citys database. For example, if you wanted to go to meerut expressway toll from Delhi to Mumbai, you would use a car to travel between Delhi town and Delhi city and then use a bus from there to Mumbai.
Since the technology is already available, the best way to go is to use a car and a bus. And that’s exactly the type of ride I’ve been looking forward to all summer.
The journey between Delhi and Mumbai may be long, but the journey between Delhi town and Delhi city is as short as it gets. And the journey between Delhi town and Delhi city is just as short as it gets. The reason for the short journey from Delhi town to Delhi city is because the city is an enclave within the city and it is not connected to any other place.
In Delhi you can take the expressway and then go all the way to Mumbai, but then in Delhi you would miss the expressway and you have to go back to Delhi town. So you end up going to the city a few times before you finally reach the city, but then you’re back at the expressway.
