To spur economic, and other activities during the third phase of the ongoing coronavirus lockdown, the Haryana government has decided to resume public transport buses in the state from tomorrow in select routes. This will help people stranded within the state due to lockdown, an official said on Thursday.
Stating that the government is doing it on an experimental basis, Haryana Chief Minister M L Khattar said his government will not lower its guard and will not hesitate in imposing stricter curbs if things don’t go as planned.
The buses will play only within the state and will not operate in areas severely affected with Covid-19. Those willing to travel can buy online tickets through the portal hartrans.gov.in. Bus routes include Panchkula, Ambala, Sirsa, Mahendragarh, Narnaul, etc.
The buses will operate from the state transport bus stands to the scheduled bus stands. No passengers will be allowed to board or disembark the bus within the journey.
