Special women buses to ply on important routes of Gurgaon
With Gurgaon providing employment to a number of people in the city, including females, there was a serious need for the city to come up with special women buses. Several women commuters also complained that the bus drivers do not stop at bus stops as well. As a result, Haryana Roadways, Gurgaon Depot announced the launch of a special ladies buses for important routes in the city.

They have even announced the routes on which these buses have started plying - bus stand to Kendriya Vihar; railway station to HUDA City Centre; bus stand to Dundahera; HUDA City Centre to Badshapur; and bus stand to Manesar. Such kind of initiative would come as a relief for female commuters, who are forced to travel in crowded buses.

Though, the buses did bear the sign of 'only women' still there were a number of male passengers who boarded the bus, which might be due to lack of awareness. "Even in the city bus service, we have 15 buses reserved for women commuters,'' said Yadav, the new general manager of Haryana Roadways, Gurgaon depot.

Rohit Yadav, the new general manager of Haryana Roadways, Gurgaon depot, said, "As of now, we have started only five buses. If we get a good response, we may improve their frequency,'' reported The Times of India. The service of these buses will start from Monday onwards.
