The Transport Corporation will operate 500 additional buses under 'Paryavaran Seva', with half their seats reserved for women and onboard marshals for safety, during the five days of odd-even period that rolls out on Monday.

Sufficient number of traffic supervisory staff and timekeepers will be deputed to help the commuters, said Aradhna, DTC Deputy Chief General Manager (PR).
