Must read

Minister for Transport Ponnam Prabhakar said that more than 30 crore women have travelled at a zero fare in TSRTC buses since the Mahalakshmi scheme was launched on December 9. Daily around 30 lakh women are travelling in ordinary and express buses. Women have saved around Rs 1,000 crore because of the Mahalakshmi scheme. The Minister said that this is the ‘Praja Palana’ (People’s Rule) and Indiramma Rajyam.
After the Congress came to power, the TSRTC launched 80 buses in December and 25 electrical buses in March.
The newly launched Non-AC electric buses named ‘Green Metro Express’ bus services are getting good response from passengers. TSRTC has launched 23 buses on March 12 and at an average daily around 13,000 commuters are travelling in these buses.
These buses are plying in three routes. There are 12 buses running between Secunderabad and Manikonda route (47L), six buses in Secunderabad to Patancheru (218C) route and another route is Koti to Secunderabad (222) route.
The TSRTC has extended the Mahalakshmi scheme to these services also. All the domicile women passengers of the State can travel free of cost duly producing an original ID card.
In order to reduce the passenger traffic in the TSRTC buses, the corporation will be launching more than 900 electric buses in a phased manner and these buses will be run in the districts and in the city as per the necessity.
