- Highest number of buses in Delhi in history: Kejriwal
- Buses will be parked in the new bus depot built in Ghummanhera
- Number of buses in Delhi increased to 6,900
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday flagged off 100 new AC low floor buses running on different routes. Kejriwal said that these buses will start plying on the roads of Delhi from today itself. Most of these buses will be run in rural areas. They will be erected in the new bus depot built at Ghummanhera.
Kejriwal said that after the introduction of 100 new buses, now the number of buses in Delhi has increased to 6900. This number is the highest in the history of the Transport Department of Delhi. Prior to this, the maximum number of buses were run during the Commonwealth Games, whose number was about 6,000.
He said that more buses are being called for Delhi. We are just buying more. But buses take time to arrive. This cannot happen overnight. When our government was formed, there was a shortage of buses in Delhi. The bus was not purchased for many years. We are committed to improve the transport of Delhi.
Electric buses will soon run on the roads of Delhi
Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot gave information about electric buses. He told that the prototype of electric buses has reached Delhi. He is standing in the IP depot. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will inaugurate it on Monday and 50 more electric buses will come in the first and second week of February. We plan to bring 300 buses by April.
