Forget free pass, DTC will have just 204 buses by 2025 as Kejriwal hasn’t bought any

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has promised to ensure free bus travel for women in the national capital but the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) fears it will be left with too few buses for any passenger to use.
DTC officials told ThePrint on the condition of anonymity that at the current rate of attrition, where at least 318 buses on an average are being scrapped annually, the transport body will be left with only 204 functional buses by 2025 from the current 3,849, as of March this year.

The problem has been compounded by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government not adding a single bus to DTC’s fleet in the last five years.
Experts have pegged the number of buses that the national capital requires at 11,000.
