After Aam Aadmi Party’s declaration to make Delhi metro and DTC buses Wi-Fi enabled, a similar resolution has been adopted by the ruling BJD government in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

Dream Team Sahara (DTS), which runs a public transport service with public-private-partnership (PPP) in Odisha, has decided to make Bhubaneswar buses Wi-Fi enabled.

“We have made all the 12 AC buses Wi-Fi enabled and will shortly roll out the free service for our passengers. The project is expected to begin by the third week of this month,” said DTS chief executive officer, Sudhansu Jena. “It will be a summer gift to AC bus passengers,” he added.

Currently, there are eight AC buses plying between Bhubaneswar and Puri and four inside Bhubaneswar. More than 4,000 passengers travel in these buses on a given day.

To improve the safety of passengers, the state government last week had ordered all the local bus operators to install Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras and Global Positioning System (GPS) devices. This step is also aimed to keep an eye on notorious bus drivers, staff and passengers.

Regional transport officer has to certify all the installations in the buses. The news of compulsory installation has since evoked mixed reactions from bus operators.
