IITBBS studies Bhubaneswar city Buses
In order to upgrade the bus service of Bhubaneswar, the state government has asked Indian Institute of Technology-Bhubaneswar to complete an ‘impact assessment study’ of the city bus service in two months. The School of Infrastructure of IIT, Bhubaneswar, has been engaged to carry out the study to assess the performance of public transport system in terms of effectiveness, safety and environmental impact.
Additionally, the state will initate all-women NNURM city buses from July 29. This comes as a relief to a number of activists, protesting the situation generated by exceedingly cramped city buses. “It will be a huge relief as many indecent men grope women in packed buses,” said activist Anuradha Mohanty.
