“As for buses, Maitha said: Additional routes will be introduced to lift passengers as part of the Traffic Movement Management Plan at key sites. We will operate 23 routes to feed the metro stations to bring up the total number of buses deployed during the events to 108 buses expected to serve 20,652 passengers during this period.

The buses operating on the new routes can cut down the commuting time for office-goers within the free zones by almost 50 per cent. The timings of the two bus routes take into account the peak hours.
