Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai said the government has held a meeting with officials of Twitter and Google in the past and will soon have another meeting with them on the issue.

"Government is in talks with the officials of Google and Twitter to provide a real time information of public transport like routes of buses in a particular area”, Rai said, adding "with this, people will easily get to know about bus information through the link to be available on Twitter and Google”.

For instance, a person gets off a metro train in unknown area, he or she can then search bus routes with the help of Google and Twitter, the minister said.

In order to ensure better bus service during odd-even formula, Delhi government will also ply 6,000 additional buses, including 2,000 school buses, during the 15-day trial period of this scheme.
