Bhubaneswar: In an innovative step, the Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) has made available English newspapers in Mo Bus for its commuters at no cost.
The English daily will be available only in AC buses in its pilot phase from September 1. This amenity will soon be extended for all buses, said the CRUT communiqué.
The communiqué also mentioned that this step was undertaken to revert the good habit of newspaper reading or in fact the habit of reading. In today’s busy life carrying a book or newspaper is not at all feasible. Hence with an easy availability of newspapers, the avoidable use of smartphones can be prevented.
Odia newspapers will also very soon be added to this service. There are also plans of adding radio library to this list of amenities available in Mo Bus.
