Chandigarh, September 15

The Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) will resume its inter-state bus service in Punjab and Haryana from tomorrow.

Uma Shankar Gupta, Director, CTU, said buses would operate from both bus stands — the ISBT, Sector 17, and the ISBT, Sector 43.

In Punjab, the buses will cover major destinations such as Hoshiarpur, Pathankot, Amritsar, Patiala, Mehatpur, Ludhiana, Dina Nagar and Bathinda. In Haryana, the buses will ply to Panipat, Rohtak, Yamunanagar, Jind, Hisar, Sirsa, Hansi and Delhi (up to the Kundli border).

The tickets can be purchased online on CTU website http://ctuonline.chd.gov.in or through the mobile app, “CTU Musafir”, dedicated for the purpose. Tickets can also be purchased from the conductor during the journey.

The buses will operate with 50 per cent passenger occupancy in view of the social-distancing norms and guidelines issued by the UT Administration from time to time.

Following the nationwide lockdown, the CTU had suspended the bus services on March 23. However, the CTU briefly resumed the inter-state bus services to neighbouring states of Haryana and Punjab from June 10, but suspended these after a few days following a sudden rise in the coronavirus cases.
