Buses plying on this route will mostly be 16 to 35 seaters and only Bharat Stage Emission Standards (BSVI) compliant vehicles will be allowed. “The number of permits for the 38km (one side) route will be decided by commissioner (Meerut) during the upcoming meeting of the regional transport authority,” transport officials said.
Once this is done, the officials could start issuing permits in December and the route may open up in January. “The buses on this route will be operated by private operators and authorised by the transport department,” said Arun Kumar, regional transport officer.
He added that the newly proposed route will be a terminal route while the other city bus service routes generally run between different residential sectors.

The Delhi-Mumbai Express Highway is set to be completed this year itself, and will open for the public after March 2023. It will connect states like Haryana, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra. 
This is going to be the first phase of the Indian government’s ambitious Bharatmala Pariyojana. Besides that, the road transport ministry is also looking to construct an electric highway between Delhi and Mumbai at the cost of 2.5 lakh crore
