As per the MoU, NTS Logistics has provided six to 23 seaters roofless commuting vans while the number of vehicles would increase with the passage of time according to the demand.
The presence of an electric shuttle service has been ensured at all entrances and the KU has also provided space for the electric charging units and parking of the vehicles.
