The Delhi transport authority is expecting bus cluster scheme to be implemented within three weeks. Under this scheme, the government has roped in private entities to manage 60 percent of the services in the city.
As many as 50 buses will be procured in the first lot. Within six months 231 buses will be obtained.
Till now there was a problem to house the buses as depots couldn’t be allotted during the Commonwealth Games period, said a senior state transport authority officer.
But now things have been chalked out. Initially there will be one depot to keep the new buses. Once the location of the depot is decided order will be placed to Star Bus operators (who won the bid for the first cluster) for delivery of the buses.
The buses are ready and just have to undergo inspection, the officer added.
As per the agreement, the government will charge Rs 1000 per month per bus.
