Delhi government scraps BRT corridor system

New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) The AAP-run Delhi government on Tuesday decided to scrap Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor system introduced by Shiela Dikshit-led Congress government in the city.

“The decision to scrap BRT was taken in a meeting chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal,” said Delhi Law Minister Kapil Mishra of the Aam Aadmi Party.

Dikshit-led Congress government had opened the BRT corridor in Delhi on April 20, 2008. This move was welcomed by environmentalists and several transport experts as a solution to Delhi’s traffic woes that would promote public transport.
