The number of buses will be increased if needed. During this time, if needed, buses will be called from Kumaon Motor Operators Union.

The Transport Department has already started assessing the preparations for the transport system in Chardham Yatra. Roadways buses were used for the first time in the yatra last year. Due to the Covid-19, the private bus operators were not ready to operate, so the government had to deploy roadways buses. Roadways buses were operated from Rishikesh to Kedarnath and Badrinath, including Gangotri. Their tickets were also added to the online service and the results of the bus service were positive.

This time also the Transport Department is preparing to put 50 buses of roadways on Chardham Yatra in the first phase. Apart from this, Roadways will also operate 25-30 buses daily from Haridwar and Rishikesh bus stations to Uttarkashi, Joshimath and Gangotri, Yamunotri, the main stations of the Chardham Yatra route. City buses will also be included from Dehradun as per requirement, provided their condition is better in terms of travel. Char Dham Yatra is going to start from 14 May with the opening of Kapaats of Yamunotri and Gangotri.

Chardham Yatra from 05 am to 08 pm

The Transport Department has fixed the time of operation of vehicles on the Chardham Yatra route. Vehicles will be operated on the journey route from five in the morning to eight in the night. This decision, intended to curb the accident, will prevent vehicles running late at night through checkposts of transport department and police.

Entry exit timings to curb speedy vehicles

In order to stop the speedy vehicles on the journey, commercial vehicle drivers will require to mark the date and time in the checkpost at the beginning of the journey and time of returning in the greencard on the same check post. For example, if the journey time is seven days, then the driver has to enter the first day on the way out and on the seventh day after returning. If he returns before the scheduled time without reason, his greencard will be canceled.
