NEW DELHI: The Delhi government will run six 'special buses' during the ongoing odd-even traffic scheme to facilitate the movement of MPs for parliament's session beginning from Monday.

"We have decided to run six special buses to ferry MPs to parliament as they are not exempted under the odd-even scheme," Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai told IANS on Sunday.

The MPs are not exempted in the Delhi government's car restriction scheme. The second phase of the odd-even scheme started on April 15 and will continue till April 30.

Rai said: "I appeal to all parliamentarians to follow the odd-even rule and also do car-pooling with other MPs."

Three special buses for MPs will leave from North Avenue and South Avenue via Akbar Road and Ashoka Road, respectively, the minister said, adding that the city government will run more buses, if required.

The minister also spoke to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and sought her co-operation to make the scheme a success.
