Special buses will ferry fans to Games venues

DTC's park-and-ride facility to make commutation easier


Shivani Chaturvedi | June 7, 2010

Commutation woes will now not play the spoilsport in your ringside Games experience. The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) will be starting a park-and-ride bus service

During the Games, low-floor CNG buses will ply from the city's two airports - Indira Gandhi International and Palam, three major railway stations - New Delhi, Old Delhi and Hazrat Nizamuddin, and Connaught Place and Inter-State Bus Terminal matro stations to the venues of the Games.

These designated stops will be pick-up points for tourists and locals alike. Return services will also be provided to these stops. Locals can thus drive to the stops - where parking facilities are available - and take the bus to get to a venue.

A DTC official told Governance Now that the fare for bus services will be decided after consultations with the organising committee for the Games.

Of the near-1000 buses running on Delhi streets during the Games, 574 will be exclusively used for sportspersons. Nearly 300 buses will be dedicated for the guests' usage. Some buses will be put to use for school children who will participate in the opening and the closing ceremony. In addition, some buses will operate to facilitate movement of paramilitary and police forces.
