Delhi: DTC introduces 'Aam Aadmi Bypass Express' service
New Delhi, Aug 9: Delhi Transport Corporation on Monday introduced its new Aam Aadmi Bypass Express bus service that will ply from Uttam Nagar bus terminal to Sarai Kale Khan ISBT, connecting three National Highways -- NH-1, NH-10 and NH-24.
Transport Minister Satyendar Jain said twenty buses, of which 10 will be air-conditioned, will run on a signal-free elevated corridor from Vikaspuri to Wazirabad on a trial basis.
The minister also said the government intended to run feeder buses on narrow roads and normal buses on large ones to ensure there is no traffic congestion due to the plying of these vehicles in the national capital.
Asked about BJP questioning the government over the name given to the service, Jain said there should be no politics on this issue as it has been launched to cater to the aam aadmi (common man).
A DTC official said the new bus service will start at Uttam Nagar Bus Terminal at 5.18 AM and at Sarai Kale Khan ISBT at 5.24 AM every day.
