As the Uttar Pradesh Transportation Corporation has made special arrangements to run additional buses for the comfort of passengers, Kanwar devotees won’t have to wait on bus terminals for their journey.
The extra buses will start functioning from this week till Shivratri. They will run from the Kaushambi depot at the Delhi border which will facilitate the devotees from both Delhi and Ghaziabad.
Buses would be available every 10 minutes
Roadway buses would be available every 10 minutes from Kaushambi, Mohan Nagar, and Ghaziabad depots to travel to Haridwar, according to Ghaziabad Regional Manager AK Singh. The lakhs of Shiv enthusiasts who bring Kanwar during Sawan will benefit from this.
For the convenience of the devotees, 250 buses have been set aside for this purpose. The procedures are scheduled to start this week. Drivers and operators have received instructions in this regard. In each of the buses, there will be two drivers and one operator.
Number of passengers travelling in the home district is decreasing
Meanwhile, it is reported that the number of passengers travelling in the home district is decreasing. This is due to the fact that the number of buses with long routes, including two from the Kanpur route, two from Lucknow, one from Badaun, three from Saharanpur, and four from Dehradun, will be reduced to serve Shiv devotees on the Kanwar route, and Mirzapur will be eliminated.
Transport Corporation is also set to add another 50 buses to this route. Keeping in mind the Kanwar route, officials have prepared the roadmap for the operation of normal buses for the devotees. For the first time, an experiment is being undertaken in which drivers and operators will be connected to the control room directly. They will receive instructions directly and as per need.
