Bhubaneswar, Aug 24: The ‘Mo Bus’ service will be extended to Keonjhar. A decision in this regard was taken in the 44th Board Meeting of Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) held recently.
This development will bring convenience and an affordable public transit system for the residents in the mining district of Keonjhar.
“In alignment with the recently announced PM e-Bus Sewa Scheme CRUT envisions plying E-Bus service in key locations across Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Rourkela, Keonjhar and Sambalpur,” said an official.
The CRUT has also decided to construct a modern bus depot at Naraj in Cuttack, a dedicated EV depot at Gadakana and a state-of-the-art bus depot at Pokhariput in Bhubaneswar.
CRUT has also allocated resources for the repair, renovation and improvement of the existing bus terminal at Master Canteen in Bhubaneswar. These infrastructure initiatives and upgrades are expected to significantly elevate the travel experience for citizens.
“CRUT would soon have state-of-the-art video conferencing facility in its Patia and Bhagabanpur depot to facilitate virtual training and capacity building for its entire crew across all its operational areas. The aim is to ensure that a professionally trained crew is there to serve the people of the state,” added the official.
