City Bus service


 

Sirsa town having a population of more than two lacs is a fast growing city and it is spread over an area of more than 25 sq. kms covering a radius of 8-10 kms. No government buses ply within the city area of Sirsa. The people use to reach at the bus stand, railway station, general hospital, educational institutions, Baba Tara Kutia, Radha Swami Satsang Ghar, Dera Sacha Sauda, Cinema Ghar and their respective destinations by hiring rickshaws or auto-rickshaws. The concepts of hiring auto rickshaws is not much in fashion as it costs them high due to its little strength and overage.
 
 
Therefore, keeping in view the scarcity of coordinated local road transport connectivity for the visitors, local people, a society named ‘Sirsa City Bus Service Society’ was formed and registered under the Societies Registration Act. Initially four mini buses were made available to it under the ‘Backward Region Grant Fund’.
 
The Local Bus was started in the year 2008 with initial periphery of Sirsa town. The service is being provided to the public on ‘No Profit No Loss’ basis. Subsequently on demand of public representatives, gram panchayats of adjoining villages in the proximity of Sirsa town, the area of operation was subsequently extended accordingly.
 
This endeavor of the District Administration has been receiving overwhelming response from general public in such a manner that presently there is further demand from various quarter to run buses in some other routes and introduce night service. This service on the one hand is providing employments to the drivers/conductors and its staff and on the other hand it is proving to be very useful for the local as well as the people of the adjoining villages for providing economical and viable local road transport facilities on non-commercial basis.
