The first route of the service was launched by CM Manohar Lal Khattar in September last year. This is the third route on the service.
The other two routes are—Palam Vihar to Ghata village and HUDA City Centre loop. The new route was launched by Union Minister Rao Inderjit Singh.
On the third route, the last bus will leave Garhi Harsaru at 8.40 pm and reach Dundahera at 9.40 pm. The bus service will cover a distance of 15.7 kilometres and include 29 stops each way.

According to the officials, ten buses will ply on the route completing a total of 70 round trips each day with a frequency of 10-15 minutes. The fare structure will be the same as that for the other two routes.
The officials added that the buses incorporated are low-floor, non air-conditioned vehicles.
