We're big fans of public transportation and were excited to test out Delhi's new metro system known as the Delhi Mass Rapid Transit System or Delhi MRTS. Construction of phase 1 of the MRTS was completed in 2002 and to the delight and amazement of city residents the project was finished on budget and three years ahead of schedule! We were amazed to hear this tidbit of information, especially given our own home state's history with a certain public works project that I need not mention.
