Uttarakhand Transport Corporation to run Double Decker Buses for short distances

There’s a good news for the daily commuters travelling from Dehradun-Haridwar as double decker buses are likely to run for shorter distances in Uttarakhand. If double decker bus service will run in the state, it will suppress the load of vehicles on the roads. Many people from Haridwar, Rishikesh, Vikasnagar, Roorkee visit Dehradun in huge numbers to seek employment, education, business and health services. Therefore, discussions are being held by the Transport Department to develop a strong public transport system for the people.

Transportation Department is planning to run double decker buses for shorter distances

Currently the four lane work between Dehradun-Haridwar is being carried on and flyovers are also being constructed so the buses can easily operate from here. It has been recorded that each year more than 2,00,000 vehicles are added on the streets, from which around 60,000 vehicles run in Dehradun. If such alternatives will be brought up by the government then people will surely embrace new and swift ones.
