Connections[edit]

Passengers from Shivaji Park and the Punjabi Bagh stations of the Green Line can access the new station on the Pink Line by getting down at either of the stations and taking a conveyance, such as taking a cycle rickshaw or an e-rickshaw, thereby acting as a virtual interchange station respectively.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has begun plying AC feeder bus services from the Punjabi Bagh West station to Shivaji Park and Punjabi Bagh of the Green Line respectively.

A feasibility study is being carried out over the interchange connectivity between the Pink and Green Lines. The DMRC stated earlier that owing to lack of land and space, the connectivity could not be provided.

According to a media report, the DMRC said in January 2019 that tenders have been floated for the construction of a 500 m long footover bridge between Punjabi Bagh West and Punjabi Bagh stations of Pink and Green Lines respectively. If all the formalities are completed on time, the skywalk is expected to be completed by early 2020, providing commuters a breather, who currently have to take a circuitous route to access the Green and Pink Lines respectively.
