Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) officials confirmed today, that the Delhi government has started testing free WiFi and CCTV cameras on three major routes in Delhi, including Airport Express route.
This project was promised by Aam Admi Party (AAP) during the recent elections, and was announced few days ago, that the Delhi government will start installing free WiFi and CCTV cameras to ensure the safety and security of its passengers. Though the WiFi service will only be free for short period of time.
As reported earlier, the government was to test these services on few DTC buses before installing them on all buses city wide. Today, the government has started testing these facilities in buses on Airport Express, Mudrika, and Narela routes.
Here is the official statement during the announcement of this project few days ago,
Government has decided to install CCTV cameras and provide Wi-Fi service in DTC buses by December this year. For a trial run, the project will be executed in some of the corporation's buses.
Making promises is one thing, pushing through those promises is another, but pushing through those promises quickly is a sign of good governance.
Installing theses facilities such as WiFi and CCTV cameras will not only entrust passengers of their safety, but will help live tracking bus locations for apps like Delhi Public Transport Offline and Moovit, as both apps has been launched recently in India.
