DelhiDesk The Delhi government plans to introduce a scheme for private aggregators to run premium buses for middle-class and upper-middle-class commuters. The air-conditioned buses will be equipped with Wi-Fi, GPS, CCTV and a panic button, and the fares will be decided by the aggregators. There will be no provision of free travel for women in these buses. The scheme, subject to the lieutenant governor’s approval, will be the first such experiment in India, with the buses required to operate and maintain at least 50 buses within 90 days of receiving the license.
