The department is also considering installing GPS devices in public transport vehicles.
But the plans could be hit due to the staff shortage in the department. At present, the department has 30 enforcement teams, of three officials each, as opposed to 36 teams a few years ago.

According to Transport officials, at least 8,000 contract chartered buses ply in the city, apart from 2,500 school buses. "We will also check how many other chartered buses were being operated by the owner (Yadav Travels) and on what routes the other buses were plying. We have also asked police to inform us if the driver had a licence and a public service vehicles badge,'' a Transport official said.
