Delhiites will have problems with buses
For the next few months in Delhi, people traveling by bus may have to face problems. The agreement of the Transport Department of Delhi Government with a major company operating buses under the cluster scheme has ended. This company operated 330 buses under three clusters. Due to the expiry of the contract, all these 330 buses have now gone off-route together. All these were orange colored non AC CNG buses running under the cluster scheme. Although an agreement has been signed with a new company to replace them, it will take at least 3 to 6 months for that company to bring new buses. Due to this, the passengers may have to face the shortage of buses for the next few months.
