GURUGRAM: More options are now on the table for people commuting to old Gurgaon, with Gurugram Metropolitan City Bus Limited (GMCBL) resuming operations along route 221, which links critical parts of the old city, running between Rajiv Chowk and the railway station.
As per authorities, two transports will run along the 5.2km course at a recurrence of around 30 minutes. The whole course has a sum of 11 stops, and gives admittance to a few basic pieces of Old Gurgaon, remembering government workplaces for the city, for example, the Gurgaon police official’s office, smaller than expected secretariat and the region courts.
“Services along this route were stopped last year after the pandemic broke out and the lockdown was imposed. We have always been open to resuming bus services wherever there is a demand. But if no revenue is generated on a route, it makes no sense to continue operations there,” said a senior GMCBL official. “However, a demand has emerged lately for the route 221, so we have started services again.”
The bus stations along the course are the Gurugram rail line station, Lakshman Vihar Chowk, Sector 4/5, Bhim Nagar, New Colony, Subhash Nagar, Pratap Nagar, Sohna Chowk, the police official’s office, the locale court complex and Rajiv Chowk. The primary transport from the railroad station will withdraw at 7.45am and the last at 7.05pm. Also, the primary transport from Rajiv Chowk will leave at 8.15am and the last at 7.35pm.
Suburbanites have invited the move. Nilesh Kumar, an inhabitant of Lakshman Vihar, said, “The way that transports have begun utilizing on this course again is a tremendous alleviation for occupants of these spaces. I have two youthful girls who frequently travel to different pieces of Gurgaon for work or to meet companions or family members. For their purposes, the transport administration will clearly be a more secure choice contrasted with cars. Yet, more transports should handle on the course.”
