To cater to passengers looking for public transport to reach the Delhi international airport.
The Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) has strengthened its bus service.
Senior transport officials said cherry-coloured air-conditioned low-floor buses will now be available round-the-clock at a frequency of just 10 minutes.
Though the DTC has been running this service for some time now, the state-run transport corporation streamlined the service on the insistence of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. "A large number of people used the airport Metro to travel between the city and the airport. Since the Metro service has been suspended for the time being, they can use the DTC buses," said a senior DTC official.
The buses connect the Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport and Kashmere Gate ISBT and run via Dhaula Kuan, Shivaji Stadium and New Delhi — almost parallel to the route of airport Metro.
