We, as the responsible people of Bhubaneswar, must take action to lower these man-made issues and start using public transport as much as possible.

The Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, and Puri were presented in 2010 with a requirement to handle and operate the bus services on intracity in addition to inter-city routes in Bhubaneswar and in between Bhubaneshwar, Puri, Cuttack, and Khurda. Over the years BPTS progressed into Capital Region Urban Transport, more typically referred to as CRUT on Might 4, 2018, with the vision to restructure the general public transit services in the city. It is the primary company offering public transit services within the capital city of Bhubaneswar and in its neighboring cities of Cuttack and Puri.

CRUT has actually expanded the meaning of public transit to incorporate multimodal alternatives for citizens and visitors with its new team of experts representing the domains of transportation planning, innovation, operations, and communications. CRUT has just recently presented its new buses under the title’ MO BUS ‘meaning’ my bus ‘on November 6th, 2018 along with MO CYCLE state’s first Public Bicycle Sharing (PBS) program on November 26th, 2018. In addition, CRUT also prepares to introduce e-rickshaws (MO E-RIDE) by early 2019. MO BUS Mo Bus plans to introduce 289 buses in three stages with the induction of 200 new buses and repair of 89 old buses.
