Free travel on DTC and cluster buses during Odd-Even scheme says Delhi government

The Delhi government today said travel for commuters in all DTC and cluster buses will be free during the third phase of the Odd-Even scheme, which will be applicable for five days starting November 13.

“The Delhi government will allow free travel for commuters in all the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) and its cluster buses during the Odd-Even scheme,” Delhi’s Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot told PTI.

The Odd-Even scheme will be rolled out in Delhi for five days from November 13 to November 17. The scheme will be in place from 8 am to 8 pm. There will be exemptions for women drivers and two-wheelers. According to official data, DTC buses carry around 35 lakh passengers every day. Since the Aam Aadmi Party came to power, the DTC has not been able to purchase any new bus.

As per rough estimates, about 13 lakh cars will go off the roads every day during the operation of the Odd-Even scheme. Gahlot had also said on Thursday that the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has also promised to provide 100 small buses during the period.

The DMRC will run 3,335 trips as against 3,248 trips it ran during the second phase of the odd-even drive during April 2016.
