Noida has been put on the fast track for the Delhi Metro. The Metro, which was earlier slated to enter Noida in 2011, opened officially on 12 November 2009, 10 months before the Commonwealth Games. Through Delhi Metro, Noida is now connected to Connaught Place, New Delhi, via Barakhambha Road, IP Estate and Akshardham Complex. The Metro connects NOIDA to Vaishali, through the Yamuna Bank interchange station. A part of this link opened on 11 November 2006. Metro will be further expanded in the city and will go to Greater Noida via
Noida features three main expressways. One is the DND Flyway, which connects Noida and Delhi, runs across the river Yamuna, and receives heavy patronage from office-goers in the city. The second is the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and third is Yamuna Expressway which connects Noida to Agra via Mathura. The area adjacent to the NGN Expressway has seen heavy residential development in recent years.
UPSRTC, DTC and private buses ply through various routes in the city. Taxi, autorickshaws and cycle rickshaws are available for small-distance transport.
Noida is not connected by railways directly, but there are railway stations nearby, including Ghaziabad and Anand Vihar. However, New Delhi Railway Station and Old Delhi Railway station are the nearest main railway stations used by commuters to reach Noida. The nearest airport is the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. Noida administration is constructing a helipad in Sector 128 to enable fast and efficient transport from the airport to Noida and from Noida to Agra.
