The low-floor buses, both air-conditioned and non-airconditioned, which had been procured exclusively for the atheletes' use will now be a part of the DTC fleet.

“By October 17 the guests and athletes are expected to return. From the subsequent day the buses will be put on roads. The traffic department of the DTC is chalking out the routes,” said A K Goyal, deputy chief general manager, DTC.
