In each region, we identify 5-10 important bus stations, 2-3 km apart. We will call them ** HUB **. We divide each region into sub-regions around the HUBs. From each HUB, two kinds of buses ply: A. ** Local Buses ** for passengers from the sub-region around that HUB. B. ** Long Distance Buses ** (5-10 km or more) between the HUBs. These buses will be HUB-to-HUB buses and mostly they will be point-to-point, i.e., they will not have intermediate stops. We will name the HUB closest to the starting point of journey as ** Starting HUB (SH) ** and the HUB closest to the destination point as ** Destination Hub (DH) **.
