Guwahati, January 12: In another development in the commercial public transportation sector of Assam, plans are being made to introduce a luxury service in the Jorhat-Dhubri route, covering a distance of more than 600 kilometres. A new bus “Mohabbat” recently reached ISBT, Guwahati and a rendezvous with the owner of the bus revealed that Jorhat and Dhubri might get connected by a luxury bus soon. The 2×2 bus is built at Gobind Body Builders, Punjab and boasts beautiful interiors.
A conversation with Mohabbat Hussain, owner of the bus, by Team UniTreed revealed that two more buses are on their way which shall reach by February. “Since we are planning for a very long route, three buses are necessary” he says.
Here is a sneak peek of the interiors of the new bus.
Carvings replacing LED (Maintenance effective)
Beautiful ambient lighting
Overhead roof hatch with Exhaust Fan (very new in Assam)
Comfortable seats with individual fans
Care taken of the charge percentage of your phone
Wooden finish, adding to the looks of the bus
Guiding passengers in the dark
The owner of the bus also revealed that this bus might start serving the Guwahati-Dhubri route till all formalities are cleared for the Jorhat-Dhubri route.
It must be noted that though there are bus services till Coochbehar from Jorhat as well Sivasagar, there is no direct bus service from Jorhat to Dhubri. “If this bus service becomes a reality, several passengers, who look for a direct service on the route, shall be benefitted and will also open scopes for tourism development” says Pronoy, who is a well known bus enthusiast from Assam.
