Delhi–Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (Delhi–Meerut RRTS) is an 82 km long, under-construction, semi-high speed rail corridor connecting Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut. It is one of the three rapid-rail corridors planned under Phase-I of Regional Rapid Transport System (RRTS) project of National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC). With maximum speed of 160 km/h (99.42 mph), the distance between Delhi and Meerut will be covered in around 62 min (1.03 h). The project will cost ₹30,274 crore (US$4.4 billion) and is expected to start operations by 2025.
- May 2017: Government of Uttar Pradesh approved DPR of Delhi-Meerut RRTS project.

- March 2019: Prime Minister laid the foundation stone for this project.

The corridor would be beneficial for the development of the region and help connect the large number of townships and centres of economic activity that are already planned along this corridor.
