Thursday, 07 November 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The ‘Mo Bus’ service of the Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) celebrated its first anniversary at the Jayadev Bhawan here on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said the Mo Bus has become a major mass transit facility in the capital region. “It is heartening to see citizens opting for the Mo Bus for their commute,” he added.

Patnaik further said “I dream of Mo Bus being lifeline of capital region like Best Buses in Mumbai and Metro rail in Delhi and Kolkata.”

In the midst of raising concern about pollution level in the country, Chief Minister announced that as many as 50 electric buses (E-buses) will be added in the Capital region soon to give a push to clean mobility in public transportation. Earlier, Patnaik took a ride in the Mo Bus from Biju Patnaik Airport Square to Jayadev Bhawan along with the citizens. He also unveiled the name of Mo Bus Mascot ‘MOBBY’ (Mo Bus for Better You).

Among others, CRUT MD Arun Bothra, Housing and Urban Development Minister Pratap Jena, Principal Secretary G Mathi Vathanan and Odisha Skill Development Authority (OSDA) Chairman Subroto Bagchi were present.
