On the occasion of Diwali, the Gujarat State Transport Corporation has sought approval from the Rajasthan Road Transport Corporation to operate buses in areas connected to tourists arriving from Gujarat and the border region. Under this arrangement, they plan to run 10 buses on routes that include Udaipur, Nathdwara, Dungarpur, Banswara, and other destinations. This operation is set to be of a temporary nature and is expected to last for a period of 15 days. It aims to facilitate the transportation needs of tourists during the festive season and promote connectivity between the two states.
In an effort to enhance travel flexibility during the festive season, requests have been made for adjustments in the timings of local buses, allowing the Gujarat State Transport Corporation (GSTC) buses to operate an hour later than the state-run buses. This move is aimed at accommodating the needs of travelers arriving from Gujarat and the border region.
Commencing on November 8th, there will be additional bus services connecting various destinations. Two buses will operate from Udaipur to Ahmedabad, while Nathdwara to Ahmedabad and Banswara to Ahmedabad will each have two buses in service. Similarly, there will be two buses running from Dungarpur to Ahmedabad. Additionally, one bus will provide a route from Mehsana to Udaipur via Ahmedabad to Jodhpur. Furthermore, Udaipur will witness the operation of one bus in the morning and another in the evening.
This initiative seeks to improve connectivity between these regions and offer passengers greater convenience and choice when it comes to their travel plans, specifically during the festive period. It is a collaborative effort between the Gujarat State Transport Corporation and the Rajasthan Road Transport Corporation to better serve the needs of travelers during Diwali.
