Respected Chief Minister
Goverment Of West Bengal


We would like to draw your kind attention towards the fact that,their is only one bus (AC)which leaves from WBTC Belgharia Depot to Salt Lake Sector 5 (via Belgharia,Nimta,Biirati at 8:30am) and we the regular passengers are very happy with it but after that their is no WBTC ac bus available in this route.

We are well aware when this route (AC25) was introduced their were 2 buses in the route but due to lack passengers 1 bus has been withdrawn, keeping the business aspect in mind.Which, we believe has happened due to lack of awareness among the general people.

However, today the only bus which travels (just once through out the day) in this route is generating good business (as we the regular passengers of the bus have created awareness among others by giving advertisement in social media),we have seen a considerable strong hike in the number of passengers in the last quarter of the financial year 2016-2017 and first two quarter of the current financial year.

We strongly believe we can generate more business in this route,as their is a large section of untapped passengers who leaves for work or for college after 8:30am but by 9:30am and travel towards Sector 5,Eco Space,Unitech, DLF 1 & 2. Unfortunately, none of them get the opportunity to board an ac bus as their is none and they all struggle and risk their life to reach their destination by traveling in local trains or put extra hours by travelling in non ac private buses or expensive shuttle taxis.

We are equally aware the road from Belgharia to Birati is quite narrow and congested hence after the bus which leaves at 8:30am ,it will be very difficult to drive another big ac bus in the route but ac mini buses can travel swiftly through it.

We also unserstand during the afternoon trip there will be fewer passengers, comparing to morning and evening office passengers. The afternoon trip can be reduce to Belgharia to Narkelbagan to Belgharia (to make the buses more cost effective).Then for the last trip the buses can travel from Belgharia to Saltlake Depot to Belgharia Depot.

It’s our request to you ma'am, please introduce two ac mini buses (at 9am and 9:30am) in this route (AC25),we need it and give us few months to see long term result. It will be our responsibility to make people aware about the new buses in the route.
