Making Delhi Transport Corporation’s public transport Smarter, Safer & Efficient
The capital of India, Delhi is home to an overwhelming 20 million people. With over 6000 public buses in operation, it still doesn’t meet the demand for transport services which are needed by residents throughout this immense city! The solution? 11000 more buses – that’s what experts recommend to bridge the gap between passenger requirement and availability.
However, having more buses for public transportation would add to the existing severe problem of pollution being faced by Delhi residents. An answer to this problem is the use of technology and smart electric buses with Intelligent Transport Systems.
Delhi Transport Corporation’s Initiative
As a part of its new initiative and fight against pollution, Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) inducted 150 electric AC buses on 24th May 2022. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal flagged off the new fleet of air-conditioned electric buses along with announcing that a further 150 would start plying on Delhi roads in June. Kejriwal said that the final aim was to have 2,000 electric buses on the roads of Delhi by next year.
