Unlike the Bluelines
, these buses would strictly follow the time table, a transport department official said.
The Delhi government is considering running the killer Blueline
buses for the Metro feeder service, sources in the transport department said.
The new system is expected to end the Blueline
rat race on crowded roads to pick up more passengers that used to kill hundreds of people every year.
The department feels that the existing ridership of the public transport system is more than adequate even if all Bluelines
go off the road," Tulsi said.
THE DELHI High Court on Wednesday refused to give any relief to Blueline
buses associations that had moved court seeking an extension of permits to ply in the Capital.
However, on Tuesday, they said the Bluelines
would be gradually phased out, with January 31 being their last day.
The issue of phasing out the Bluelines
has been a long- drawn battle between the government and the bus operators who've gone to the court several times.
But considering the propensity of Bluelines
to snuff out lives on the city's streets, they are not broaching the issue in public.
The sources said the government has proposed a " kilometre scheme" that would allow the Bluelines
to operate again.
