Citizen Charter


This Charter sets out our commitment to provide a convenient, comfortable, regular, punctual, efficient, safe, reliable and eco-friendly bus transit system at reasonable prices benefiting the National Capital.

The aim is to establish an effective & active interface with the commuters to evaluate our performance against their expectations and take appropriate remedial measures to provide them the best possible service.

The Commuters are at the focal point of this Charter and their maximum satisfaction is the main strategic thrust.


We aim to make our services reliable by way of ensuring their punctuality. We also aim at minimizing the waiting time of the commuters at the bus stands by way of optimizing frequency on different routes as against the actual demand.


We are always keen to imbibe the latest technological advancements indigenously & globally available in Bus Body Designs, Engine Equipment, Technology, Systems etc. so as to be able to provide the commuters a comfortable & efficient Bus Service.


DTC is the First Transport in the country to have inducted the CNG Buses in its City Fleet. Not only that, having replaced its entire City Fleet with the CNG buses, the Corporation is the World's Largest Eco-friendly CNG Fleet Operator and, thus, has the pride of its active contribution towards cleaning up the environment of the City. Our city fleet has over 3110 CNG buses.

 The Corporation also operates Inter State Services with diesel buses. These buses too are made to undergo Stringent Pollution Checks after regular intervals.

 The Corporation has a full-fledged Pollution Control Cell which is entirely dedicated to ensure that its buses plying on the roads do not emit pollution. The buses found emitting smoke are immediately withdrawn from the road & put back only after necessary rectification/s. The telephone number of its Pollution Cell has been displayed in all DTC Buses and any complaint/report about DTC buses found emitting smoke may be telephonically lodged with the Pollution Control Cell at 28892006/220.
