Resuming its services after two months of hiatus, the Delhi Transport Department (DTC) is planning to start disinfection services for public and private vehicles at all fuel stations in the city, claim sources. They mention that it will be offered at a minimal cost as an extension of disinfecting public transport buses and other vehicles like cabs and auto rickshaws. The government has already made it mandatory for all public transport vehicles to be sanitised after every trip. This scheme, state sources, is being planned as DTC has witnessed a significant increase in ridership post the resumption of its services. It is estimated to be 3.5 lakh already, they inform. Delhi has a fleet of 6,348 buses, which are run by DTC and DIMTS. During the lockdown, and even now, the two organisations are known to supply buses for various departments like revenue, police and health to help them to carry out essential services.
