Bus Services Resume In Kerala After 56 Days

The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has resumed its bus services from Wednesday. The buses will run from 7 am to 7pm under the prescribed lockdown guidelines. Kerala has slowly begun to ease lockdown restrictions allowing life in the state to inch back to normalcy. 

KSRTC buses are running under the guidelines of lockdown

KSRTC was planning to run 1850 inter-district buses in the state. However, with only a few patrons available, one-third of them had to be held back. Most passengers that were on the buses were on their way to satellite towns. A major cause of concern was the crowding on some buses. The crew was unable to maintain social distancing guidelines. The bus fare has increased to Rs. 12 and the new tariff has come into force since Wednesday. 

Most of the passengers in Thiruvananthapuram district were office-goers. Private bus operators have also expressed their willingness to start services.
