Hi-tech city bus service in Bhubaneswar from Nov 6
Bhubaneswar: The capital city of Odisha is going to have a technology-driven citizen friendly city bus service, which is likely to be launched on November 6.
The bus service will also use smart technology like mobile app through which citizens can book their tickets and also get to know the locations of the vehicle and minimise their waiting time at their nearby bus queue shelters (BQS) or bus stops.
Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT), the special purpose vehicle for the pan-city public transport administration through city buses, has already received 125 buses for registration. While the company has undertaken the registration formalities of the vehicles, 75 more buses are likely to join the fleet very soon.
The bus operation along with the mobile app will be integrated with the command and control centre of the Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited, commonly known as Bhubaneswar Operations Centre (BOC).
