The vaccine is now expected to arrive in Corona in 2021 for rescue work. At the same time, the new year will see many big changes in Dehradun. Let me introduce you to them: –
Thirty electric city buses will fill Duner’s streets
A big plan of Dehradun Smart City will be seen to take shape on the ground. In the next two months, 30 electric buses will start operating in the city. These air-conditioned buses will be equipped with modern facilities.

Dr. Ashish Kumar Srivastava, Chief Executive Officer of Smart City, said that the company will soon have 30 buses.
