Dwarka sub-city to have shuttle serviceJuly 15th, 2009 - 10:25 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 15 (IANS) Come September, the about one million residents of Dwarka here will have a shuttle service of low-floor air-conditioned buses within the sub-city.
“The decision has been taken to improve local transportation in Dwarka sub-city, which is home to about a million people. The service would also provide better connectivity from Dwarka to the Indira Gandhi International Airport,” Delhi Transport Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said Wednesday.
“The need for this service was felt because Dwarka lacks a proper local public transport system and residents also find it difficult to travel within the sub-city because of paucity of autorickshaws. But, the new shuttle service, by going to all the sectors, would seek to address this problem effectively,” he added.
The minister said the government also decided to run a separate mudrika or ring-road bus service for east Delhi, home to about four million people, that would connect it to Khel Gaon area in south Delhi by the end of 2009.
