For Commonwealth Games, new low-floor buses will be ready to transport athletes, foreign delegates and officials.

According to Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) managing director Naresh Kumar, more than 3,500 buses will be deployed to ferry athletes and delegates. While the players and the team officials will be given 600-odd buses, 700 buses will be provided to Delhi police, 300 to sports authority and 1,300-1,400 will ply to transport spectators.

Kumar was speaking at a function held to flag off 197 new low floor buses. Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit flagged off the new buses.

The DTC also inaugurated its new Express Bus Service for office goers. The new service, with 72 buses, will begin from Monday morning.
