Srinagar, Mar 24 : The government has started night bus services on many routes to ensure that the common people, who don’t have their own transport, get accessible and reliable transport system in evening hours and also give access to the people towards Dalgate-Boulevard road, Regional Transport Officer (RTO), Kashmir, Syed Shahnawaz Bukhari said on Friday.
The directions in this regard were passed by Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, V K Bidhuri in a meeting yesterday.
Talking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), RTO Kashmir, said that the decision to come up with the night bus service on many routes has been taken keeping in view many issues.
“The shopkeepers in many areas put down their shutters by 6 PM as they are not confident whether they would get transport to reach home in late evening. Similarly, the people too don’t come out in the evening in absence of public transport,” he said, adding that the night bus services will be ensured on the Chadoora route and Lal Chowk-Dalgate to Harvan.
He said that the people are being given access to boulevard road in evening hours as there were many events in the past and the common people, who don’t have their own transport, desired to visit the place, but couldn’t. “Thus, keeping these things in mind, the night bus service will be ensured along these routes to ensure the people heave a sigh of relief,” he said.
