People can park their vehicles, and proceed to ‘Mo Bus Shuttle boarding point’ for going to venues of Kalinga Stadium and Exhibition Ground. The tariff for the Non-AC shuttle buses has been fixed at Rs 15 per person and for AC-shuttle at Rs 30 per person. For operating the citizen services, a crew of 40 bus captains, 60 bus guides, and 30 supervisory staff will be roped in. The service would be continuous for hockey enthusiasts, festival-goers and tourists interested to connect with the World Cup at Kalinga Stadium and Bhubaneswar City Festival.
