Around 40 crore devotees are expected to take part in the fair in 2025. Transport Minister Dayashankar Singh said on the directions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, a plan has been made to purchase new buses before the Maha Kumbh. The new buses will be added to the UPSRTC fleet in a planned manner. These new buses will be exclusively used to ferry passengers to the Maha Kumbh. With this, the journey of a large number of devotees coming to the Maha Kumbh will become easier, he said. Buses will be available every 10 minutes on all routes, the release said. UPSRTC MD Sanjay Kumar said the corporation will purchase 1,575 buses by March 2023. Out of this, 1,200 buses will be added to the UPSRTC fleet immediately while the rest will be added in April-May, he said.
