CRUT Adds 4 More Routes For Mo Bus Services In Cuttack
Cuttack: The Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) has extended its ‘Mo Bus’ services to 4 more routes connecting to Odisha’s Cuttack city.
In a notification on Sunday, the CRUT stated that in order to ply its buses on the new routes, it has added 30 old buses after upgrading those. Due to the rise in demand for expansion of the Mo Bus service, CRUT came up with the idea of refurbishing old buses and restoring those with modern amenities for daily operations, which will help in extension and addition of new routes.
“Old buses have been refurbished and upgraded into Mo Bus standard that are equipped with modern technology and abide by safety norms. This new fleet of Mo Bus will be on the road to serve the public from June 8,” said Sanjay Kumar Singh, MD, CRUT.
“Sustainability is the core value of CRUT which it has adhered to since its inception for its daily operations. With old buses in a state of disrepair, we stepped in and offered to inculcate the principles of circular economy to refurbish and restore the old buses, bringing those back to the road. This fleet will serve a larger number of commuters and operate on additional routes which will benefit the people of the capital region using our Mo Bus services,” said Dipti Mahapatro, GM (P&A), CRUT.
Following are the four new routes where the buses would ply:
- Route No 80: Biju Patnaik Park, Cuttack-Charbatia
- Route No 81: Barabati Stadium-Salepur
- Route No 82: Bhubaneswar Railway Station-SCB Medical
- Route No 83: Dhabaleswar-Kandarpur
