The Private Bus Operators' Union has vowed full support to the farmers' agitation against new agricultural laws. Notably, many operators have been sending their buses to ferry protesting farmers to and from the Delhi border ever since the agitation shifted to the Capital. The bus operators have welcomed the state government's decision to exempt the state stage carriage buses and buses of educational institutions, school and college from the motor vehicle tax this year.

After a meeting with transporters, union president Narpinder Singh Ravi Jalal said, "We stand firm with farmers in their struggle against the new farm laws brought by the Centre. We will extend all possible help to them. We have been ferrying farmers to protest sites in our buses. We have also decided to organise an 'Akhand Path' to pray for positive outcome of the stir."

Sunny Dhillon, another union leader, said, "We have launched a new flag to express our support to the farmers' stir. It will be placed on every private bus associated with our union which will mobilise support for the agitation."
