Ke­jri wants plan for over­haul of bus sys­tem in 6 months

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - Metro -

NEWDELHI:Chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal on Tues­day di­rected trans­port of­fi­cials to sub­mit a new re­port in six months on ra­tio­nal­is­ing bus routes .

The move comes af­ter the gov­ern­ment faced flak from the green court for not up­grad­ing the bus sys­tem in the city.

Ke­jri­wal now has asked Delhi In­te­grated Multi-Mo­dal Tran­sit Sys­tem (DIMTS) to draft a new com­pre­hen­sive route ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion plan of all buses, in­clud­ing the Metro feeder ser­vice.

It was also de­cided that a pi­lot project on this would be con­ducted in Na­jaf­garh, which hap­pens to be trans­port min­is­ter Kailash Gahlot’s con­stituency. The re­port for the pi­lot project has to be sub­mit­ted by Jan­uary 1.

“DIMTS gave a pre­sen­ta­tion to the CM who asked them to up­date the route ra­tio­nal­i­sa­tion re­port of 2010-11 by con­duct­ing a fresh study. It has to be com­pleted in six months time,” said an of­fi­cial present in the meet­ing.
