Punjab Transport Minister Laljit Singh Bhullar and Education Minister Harjot Singh Bains on Tuesday flagged off Volvo bus service from Nangal to IGI Airport Delhi. Now, the people of Kandhi area will be able to travel to IGI Airport Delhi at Rs.1130.
Bhullar said the monopoly of private companies has ended with the launch of the government Volvo bus service from Punjab to Delhi International Airport, adding that despite the fare drop by these private companies, which were charging between Rs.3000 to Rs.3500 arbitrarily, still people are preferring government Volvo bus service thus enabling the public bus service making a profit.
The Transport Minister said so far more than 80,000 passengers have traveled in these buses from different cities of the state, and these statistics prove the success of the bus service and so the Punjab government is continuously increasing the number of buses.
Education Minister Bains said that since most of the people of this area are in Arab countries, and they had to hire vehicles at exorbitant rates to reach the airport, so this bus service will be very beneficial for the people of the area.
The Transport Minister said people will be able to travel in Volvo bus from Nangal city to Terminal-3 of Delhi International Airport with just Rs.1130. The bus will depart daily from Nangal Bus Stand at 1:30 PM, and to reach Sri Anandpur Sahib at 1.50 PM and Rupnagar at 2.50 PM while the bus will depart from Sector-17 Chandigarh for Delhi Airport at 4.35 PM. The bus will leave from the Public Transport Center of the airport at 11:40 PM and it will leave ISBT Delhi at 12:50 pm for Nangal.
