Delhi bus commuters continue to suffer

The woes of thousands of bus commuters continued in the capital today, even after more than a week of Delhi Government’s directive to the Bluelines to get safety cirtificates to ply on the roads.

Of a total fleet of 4,600 Bluelines, only 2,900 were plying on the roads along with 2,500 DTC buses today, leaving the commuters at the receiving end.

Office goers, particularly women and elderly, were the worst sufferers as they had to wait for long hours at bus stops.

Yesterday, the Transport Department had given green light to 393 of 595 Bluelines, State Transport Minister Haroon Yusuf said, adding the special drive for the private fleet will continue only in Burari in North Delhi for next week.

The minister warned the operators to immediately get special fitness certificate for their vehicles or face punitive action.
