The pilot project for Panic Alarm System has been launched in five cluster buses of Rajghat-2 depot and plying on route 522. The bus numbers are DL 1PC 6613, DL 1PD 0740,

The project has been implemented in collaboration with a Bangalore-based NGO, Project Durga, working in the area of women safety and gender equity in public spaces in India.

All the bus crew members (drivers and conductors) of the buses covered under pilot project of Panic Alarm System have been trained in operating and responding to the panic alarm system. The following protocol has been established:

  • On-board announcements and LED display boards will announce that the bus is equipped with a panic alarm system, especially to address women safety related issues
  • In each bus, four panic buttons have been installed to cover the entire length. If any of the alarms is pressed, a loud beeping alarm will be activated for 40 seconds, during which time it cannot be deactivated.
  • Upon hearing the alarm, the driver will take the bus to the left-most part of the road and bring it to stop. The conductor will be able to see exactly which location the alarm was pressed, andintervene in the situation.
  • If the situation isn’t minor and cannot be addressed on the spot, the conductor will immediately call the Depot Manager, who will intimate PCR van, if necessary.
  • The panic alarm system will also be integrated with the bus GPS location, so that every time the alarm is pressed, the Depot Manager and Central Command Centre of cluster bus operations at DIMTS Kashmere gate get an immediate alert.
