Rajasthan Road Transport Corporation Introduces New Buses to Udaipur Depot


Bus for Ayodhya

To improve transportation, Rajasthan Road Transport Corporation (RRTC) added three new buses from Udaipur depot to Haridwar. These buses meet BS-6 standards and arrived Tuesday, April 30, night. On Wednesday morning, one of these buses departed for Haridwar at approximately 11:30 AM. 

The decision to introduce new buses comes after the suspension of bus services on the Udaipur-Haridwar route since January 1, 2024 due to the ban on BS-4 buses entry into Delhi. The Delhi government's mandate allows only BS-6 buses to operate within the city limits. 

The addition of these new buses is anticipated to alleviate the burden on passengers and bolster the revenue of the roadways. Currently, approximately 14,000 individuals travel from the Udaipur depot daily, contributing to a daily income ranging between Rs 34 to 35 lakh. With the introduction of the new buses, it is hoped that the daily revenue will see a significant increase of up to Rs 5 to 6 lakh. 

Initially, Udaipur was slated to receive a total of 10 buses as part of the allocation, with the remaining 7 expected to arrive soon. Even though more people are traveling and the bus count dropped from over 100 to 84 in five years, RRTC hadn't added more buses until now.

The new buses were procured under contract, following the rule that they must be available within 90 days. Although it's been about a month and a half, the remaining seven buses are expected to be deployed soon on various local routes including Abu Road, Jaipur, Banswara, Dungarpur, Nimbeheda, and others.
