Bhubaneswar gets all-woman city bus service

 

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has launched an all-woman city bus service in Bhubaneswar.

Four dedicated JNNURM city buses for women will be launched on Airport-Nandankanan
and KIIT-Balakati routes in peak hours daily.

The buses will transport only women from 8.30am to 11 am and 4.30pm to 7pm on those routes. In other times, male passengers can also board the buses, said Sudhansu Jena, CEO of Dream Team Sahara (DTS), operator of the city bus service.

Bhubaneswar Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena said the bus operator would soon install CCTV cameras in all 125 city buses, including the four rolled out on Monday, running in Bhubaneswar, Puri and Cuttack.
