NEW BUSES FLEET * India: 1000 vehicles for Delhi
* Delhi - DTC plans to float fresh tender for 1,000 buses
-- More than two years and multiple tenders later, the Delhi Transport Corporation state bus agency has decided to float another tender - this time for 1,000 buses... According to officials, the proposal is for 1,000 low-floor non-AC buses. DTC at present has around 4,500 buses in its fleet. On ground though, only 3,800 ply every day. At least 800 buses are the older, standard-floor buses, which are fast heading for scrap. The transport utility has been trying to augment its fleet for several years now... The Delhi government had, through DIMTS, come out with a global expression of interest (EoI) in November last year... Transport minister Gopal Rai, has already announced that the government will make around 1,000 buses available in the public transport system by April this year, followed by another 1,000 in August. A premium service comprising 1,000 buses is also likely to be announced in November 2016...
