Delhi bus agency in talks with Google for travel solutions

BS Reporter  |  New Delhi 

Delhi’s buses will never be the same again. With the Commonwealth Games slated to begin in the capital later this year, Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) is negotiating with Google to launch transit information services for its buses.

The updates, to be provided free of cost through Google Transit, an application tool, would provide information not only about bus routes, transit stops and fares but also detail of DTC bus schedules on a real-time basis.

Additionally, for a particular location, information will be made available about surrounding tourist destinations, eateries, historical monuments.
