The Uttarakhand Transport Corporation will begin Volvo bus services to Chandigarh and Haldwani in the New Year.
The Volvo service to Chandigarh will be the third premium class public transport service of the UTC on interstate route.
According to sources in the department, Chandigarh and Haldwani Volvo services will be started by the end of this financial year.
UTC officials claimed they took the decision seeing the demand for premium class bus services between Dehradun and Chandigarh.
Owing to the absence of adequate train services to Chandigarh and Haldwani, the corporation has started these services. “The new bus services in all likelihood will begin by the end of this financial or in the beginning of next financial year. Frequency of buses may be increased depending on the response we get. Both routes have the potential to generate revenue if passengers are given better services,” said Deepak Jain, GM, operations UTC.
