New Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday flagged off the fourth lot of 100 new buses from Rajghat Bus Depot, from the 1000 standard floor buses that started being delivered in October this year.
The buses are equipped with ultra-modern facilities and state-of-the-art features like GPS trackers, panic buttons, CCTV, and hydraulic lifts for the convenience of the differently-abled. 329 buses have already been flagged off in the previous months.
Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot was also present in the flagging off event along with Mr Kejriwal.
Addressing the media after the flagging off ceremony, Mr Kejriwal said, “I want to congratulate the people of Delhi that 100 new buses are arriving on the roads of Delhi. Several new buses have arrived in recent months and the rest of the buses are also coming soon.
I believe that with the induction of new buses, the lack of and irregularity in public transportation in Delhi will be resolved. Just like the transformations that have happened in the health and education sectors in Delhi, we want the public transport sector to become technologically advanced and be recognized internationally. The people of Delhi will be proud of our transport sector.”
