DTC buses connect different parts of Delhi, thus making commuting easier. The main two routes where DTC operate are the Mudrika and the Bahri Mudrika Route.

Metro Feeder Buses
With the entry of Delhi Metro, transportation has undergone a major change. DTC has been cooperating with Metro service so that commuters can travel to metro stations with ease. Thus DTC has started new routes to connect metro stations to various parts of Delhi, so that travelling to metro stations becomes more convenient.
High Capacity Bus Service
As population of Delhi has increased over the last decade, so has dependency of people on DTC for commuting. Hence the need for more buses was felt. This prompted DTC to come up with the idea of high capacity bus service, such as hi-tech buses with modern facilities such as GPs navigation, air conditioning and more. These buses had spacious interiors that enabled more passenger in-take and the make of the bus was such that the comfortable interiors did not make it too congested. The new sleek and red buses were inaugurated on 4 June 2008 by former chief minister Sheila Dikshit. Initially, 8 buses were put on service on select routes and two of the buses were put to service in the newly constructed corridor. The fares too are nominal on the buses with the minimum and maximum fare being, Rs. 10 and Rs. 25 respectively. DTC will also be soon launching around 5,000 new low-floored buses and around 1000 of these buses will be air-conditioned buses.

It is not just within Delhi that DTC operates bus services but it also runs buses to different states in north of India. One can travel to various north Indian states by DTC buses.
