Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation will resume operations to Andhra Pradesh in a phased manner with effect from June 17.
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC), which had stopped inter-State services on March 22, decided to start its first inter-state operation in a phased manner with services to Andhra Pradesh.
KSRTC Phase 1 routes:
In the first phase, the buses would ply from Bengaluru to Anantapur, Hindupur, Kadri, Puttaparthi, Kalyanadurga, Rayadurga, Kadapa, Produtur, Mantralaya, Tirupathi, Chittor, Madanapalli, Nellore and Vijayawada.
Another bus service would be from Ballari to Vijayawada, Anantapur, Kurnool and Mantralaya. The third service would be from Raichur to Mantralaya and the fourth service from Shahpur to Mantralaya and Kurnool.
Almost a month after resuming the inter-district services, the transport corporation said it would run the buses without air-conditioners in view of the COVID-19 spread. Apart from this, other precautionary measures have been taken into consideration by KSRTC.
There is no official statement on buses operating to Kerala, Goa, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. Previously, the Karnataka government resumed its public transport services when the nation entered into the fourth phase of the lockdown to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) along with the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses resumed its services with fewer than 30 passengers under strict restrictions and precautions.
