KOCHI: As part of its efforts to vitalise the public transport system, the district administration has decided to take measures to start KSRTC night services.
The authorities are planning to ensure that KSRTC buses conduct services to various parts of the city and suburbs at onehour intervals after 8 pm. As only a few buses are operating services in the city after 8 pm, the passengers are facing hardships. So, priority is being given to start night services at frequent intervals, District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth said. "Starting buses from the islands connected to Ernakulam is next in the priority list," the Collector said. The residents of the islands are suffering owing to lack of bus services. There are also plans to issue more permits to private buses in the district. More KSRTC bus services will also be started in the district. State government officials said they have completed procedures to start 100 more ThiruKochi buses in Kochi. Eight more lowfloor A/C buses will start services from Kochi soon. The KSRTC started two ThiruKochi and A/C lowfloor buses each through the Vallarpadom International Container Transshipment Terminal on Wednesday. The authorities said they would start more services on the route soon. The programmes highlighting the need to switch over to public transport system will also be organised.
