Would the new ISBT at Dwarka Sector 22 cater to the passengers from all over like other ISBTs?

Well, that’s what was supposed to happen according to the plan of 2008, but now at the same plot is to be made a mini-ISBT, which will be primarily for the passengers visiting IGI Airport. It will be Delhi’s fourth ISBT, but will not be working on as large a scale as the other three.

Following are some points about this new ISBT which should be noted:

• It will take another 6 months to build this ISBT.

• It is expected to have a daily footfall of 1.5 lakh and would be only for those who want to visit IGI visitors.

• To compensate its small size and footfall, the ISBT will be given a more modern infrastructure, as compared to the ISBTs in Sarai Kale Khan, Kashmiri Gate, and Anand Vihar.

• It will be convenient to commute to the airport for the passengers coming by Punjab, Agra, Jaipur, and Haryana.

• The ISBT is directly opposite to Dwarka Sector 21 metro station and has the shuttle service available. Commuting to the airport express line is also made easier from there.

• It will only cater to 100 buses per day, while other ISBTs accommodate more than 1000 buses.
• It is going to have a multilevel parking.

• It will have a passengers’ lounge just like the one at the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

• “Passengers arriving by buses will have the option of seamlessly transiting to the Airport Express Line and reach IGI Airport’s Terminal 3 within minutes. There will also be the provision of shuttle taxis from the ISBT for those who don’t want to take the metro”, says a DTIDC official. (Source: The Times of India)

Here’s the original plan of this ISBT which was made in 2008:
