The Government of Jammu and Kashmir has decided to revive JKRTC and has got the first 95 new vehicles into its fleet so that common people can get the facility of transport at the cheap rates.

LG Manoj Sinha recently while inducting these vehicles has said that his administration will bring at least 500 new vehicles into the fleet of JKRTC so that the rural pockets of the population in Jammu and Kashmir are not only connected by this transport system but it will also boost the economy in these areas.

The UT Government has made significant advances towards improving the standards of Mass Public Transportation by providing cost-effective and convenient public transport to cater to the needs of the people.

Dedicated efforts are being made to reach out to the unconnected habitations with transport connectivity, especially in rural and remote areas so that the population living in these areas can be provided with better means of transportation.

JKRTC is the only Transport Corporation in the Country having both types of Transport vehicles viz Goods as well as Passenger vehicles. It also ensures timely transportation of food grains and other essential commodities to every nook and corner of the UT of J&K, besides playing a vital role during emergencies like natural calamities including earthquakes and floods.

As part of the revival plan of JKRTC, a total of 503 vehicles including 277 Trucks, 185 Buses and 41 AC Buses will be added to the fleet of JKRTC in a phased manner.
