Delhi, a city having more than 5000000 registered vehicles. It hatched a major problem in the city “Traffic Jam” all the times. To take out city from this dilemma Delhi Transport Corporation has shaped up transport facility.

SIghtseer can enjoy the ride of Yellow-Green Auto rickshaw, Air conditioned buses, Superfast metro trains, 24×7 Call Cabs and Delhi Metro service while wandering in the city. In the era of concept cars some areas of Delhi are still best and only accessed by the old ‘Tawngas’ and ‘Pedelled Cycle rickshaws’.

Auto rickshaw and DTC buses run on Compressed Natural Gas or CNG was one of the safety measures taken by Delhi Transport Corporation to fight with another major problem of increasing pollution.
