The Odisha State Road Transport Corporation (OSRTC) is all set to roll out a fleet of AC deluxe buses from Bhubaneswar to all the district headquarters and major cities of the State.
In the first phase, a total of 75 buses will be purchased by OSRTC. The buses branded as “Rajdhani” are equipped with personalised lighting, comfortable modern seats and individual mobile charging points.
“We are aiming to make the government bus service more safe and comfortable than the private bus service. The buses that we are bringing will be known as Rajdhani and will operate from Bhubaneswar to various district headquarters and other important places in Odisha,” said OSRTC CMD, Sudhanshu Sekhar Sadangi.
Moreover, six new Volvo Busses will be added to the fleet out of which two are already running on Puri-Kolkata route, while the others will ply on Badbil-Kolkata and Bhubaneswar-Baripada routes.
Currently, 373 busses of OSRTC are operating under 23 units which include Hi-Tech, Hi-Comf, AC Deluxe, and AC Sleeper category of buses.
