The GM JKRTC said the bus services will not only facilitate the transport facility to the public but will also ensure comfortable travel as these buses are semi-deluxe and more comfortable than conventional buses. He further informed that bus service from Jammu-Billawar-Delhi via Dayala Chack has been restored recently which will provide the long route transportation facility for the inhabitants of Billawar sub division.
Pertinently, the Bus Service from Jammu-Kathua-Dhaggar via Lakhanpur-Mahanpur-Basohli-Bhoond-Bani (Departure from Jammu 07:30am) has been restored, while Bus Service on new route Jammu-Badnota via Dyalachack-Billawar-Machhedi (Departure from Jammu 08:00am) has also commenced today providing daily service.
