500 electric buses to be flagged off in Delhi on Jan 23: PTI

The Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said 500 electric buses will be flagged off in the national capital on 23 January, taking the number of buses on the roads to 1,800, PTI reported. 

While travelling in a Delhi Transport Corporation bus, the minister urged people to prioritise the use of public transport, PTI noted. 

The government has tied up with Tummoc to bring the single journey ticket system, wherein the same ticket will work for travelling in the bus, metro and autorickshaws and will be valid from the origin to the destination, PTI reported. 

It further noted that as of December 2023, the Delhi government's fleet had 7,232 buses including 4,391 operated by the DTC and 2,841 by the Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System (DIMTS).
