Dehli metro rail to usher in world’s first transit rating system

Feb. 16, 2017

The world’s first transit rating system, catering exclusively to metro networks, has been unveiled at the Delhi Metro Rail Corp.’s head office.

The DMRC, along with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), announced the LEED for transit rating system, designed specifically to address the needs of transit systems around the world, reports The Hindu.

Developed with input from the DMRC, the new system will allow operational transit facilities to benchmark efficiencies and demonstrate continual improvement.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will be the first metro network in the world to pursue the pilot – LEED v4 O+M: Transit – for its stations in Delhi-NCR, officials said. Also, the Metro Bhawan is the first building to pursue and achieve LEED certification, said a statement released by the DMRC.

LEED is an international certification, which provides a framework to building owners and operators for identifying and implementing practical green building solutions.

LEED was introduced for transit purposes after a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the DMRC, the USGBC and the GBCI in October 2015. To assess the functioning of metro stations, an “arc performance platform” has been released, which will track performance based on five categories — energy, water, waste, transportation and human experience.
