These services are scheduled to run every hour from the Lucknow Alambagh base to Delhi, Dehradun, Gorakhpur, Varanasi, Prayagraj, Ballia, Jaipur, Agra. Besides the Alamabagh base, the buses will also be available from the Alambagh, Charbagh, Kaiserbagh and Awadh Bus Station at source point Lucknow.

According to the Regional Officer of Lucknow Zone, the buses will depart as soon as they hit the 25 passenger capacity. The bookings for the same have already kickstarted and tickets can be booked both online and offline (from the counters). The capacity in these new buses have been reduced to a lower number in order to maintain social distancing during road travel. The increased frequency and hourly schedule will also help to stagger the crowds, tackling the issue of festive rush during the pandemic.
