"A total of 525 new buses with ultra modern facilities have hit Delhi roads since August. These are 37-seater buses with hydraulic lifts for the convenience of differently-abled people. "Fourteen panic buttons have been installed inside the buses and each side has seven buttons each. At the same time, three CCTV cameras have been installed inside each bus," said Gahlot.

Here are 4 Things you need to know about these 100 standard floor buses flagged off in Delhi by the Chief Minister:-

Reason for more buses

"I have flagged off 100 more buses today. Now, many new buses have hit Delhi's roads over the past few months. It is my dream to modernise Delhi's public transport infrastructure so that it becomes a comfortable option for every citizen. Hundreds of new buses will be added within the next five to six months. The shortage of buses since many years is now being addressed with these new additional buses. One thousand electric buses will also be inducted very soon," said Kejriwal.

Hydraulic lifts


This specified feature of hydraulic lifts has been implemented in buses of Delhi to make sure that differently-abled persons do not struggle with traveling within the city.

GPS Tracker

Another technical feature implemented in buses functioning with the city so that conveniences of the authorities remain unshaken and safety procedures are followed in an organized way. This GPS tracker will let the officials know where all the buses have been functioning with a better record of travel.

Panic Buttons and CCTV Cameras

Soon after the DTC services in the city became free for women and specialized Marshals were recruited for women safety, the technology has yet come to salvation for women implementing Panic Buttons and CCTV cameras in public transport.
