Jammu, March 1

In a stride towards sustainable transportation, Jammu Smart City CEO Rahul Yadav on Thursday flagged off electric-bus service from Jammu to Suchetgarh border for locals and tourists.

The launch of the bus service coincided with the Border Security Force (BSF) extending the beating retreat ceremony at Border Outpost Octroi near the International Border in Suchetgarh from weekend days to four days a week—Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, an official said.

The ‘Wagah-Attari-style’ ceremony, comprising a structured parade by BSF men, was launched in October 2021 as part of the government’s border tourism promotion programme.

“The electric bus of Jammu Smart City will ferry local people and tourists from Jammu Bus stand to Suchetgarh border and vice-versa. This initiative aims to provide an eco-friendly transit option for locals and tourists,” Yadav said.

“It will depart from Jammu bus stand at around 2.30 pm towards Suchetgarh border for sightseeing and will return to the starting point after the conclusion of the retreat ceremony at Octroi Post, Suchetgarh,” he added.
