Chandigarh, Sept 9 (UNI) The Haryana Roadways has reduced the fare of low-floor AC buses plying between Gurgaon and Delhi.
An official spokesman said the revised fare of these AC buses in Delhi area had now been fixed at par with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses. The revised fares had become applicable from Tuesday itself.
As per the revised fares, the passengers will have to pay Rs 30 for going to Dhaula Kuan from Gurgaon which was earlier Rs 40.
Similarly, for Karol Bagh, the fare would be Rs 35 while earlier it was Rs 60.
The fare from Gurgaon to Shivaji Stadium would be Rs 35 instead of Rs 60 and for Safdarjung one would have to pay Rs 35 which was earlier Rs 50.
Earlier, the passenger had to pay almost three times of the ordinary bus fare for traveling into AC bus. But now, after revising the fares of AC buses, the passengers would have to pay almost twice of the fare he would have paid if he travelled in non-AC bus.
The low floor AC buses given by the Haryana Urban Development Authority were plying from Gurgaon to different destinations in Delhi on three routes.
One route was from Gurgaon-IFFCO Chowk-Mahipalpur-Dhaula Kuan-Karol Bagh while the second route was from Gurgaon-IFFCO Chowk- Mahipalpur-Dhaula Kuan-Shivaji Stadium. The third route was from Gurgaon-IFFCO Chowk-Sikanderpur Border-Mehrauli-Safdarjung.
Low floor AC buses between Gurgaon and Delhi were started in December last. Later on, it was felt that the fare of these buses was more as compared to the AC buses of DTC. So, the Government decided to reduce the fare.
