TRSTC to operate 4,000 special buses for nine days in Dussehra
During the Dussehra festival, the Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) would operate nearly 4,000 special buses. TSRTC regional director Venkanna told ANI that special buses have been arranged from Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS), Jubli and other bus terminals. Buses from Khammam and Nalgonda will stop at Dilsukh Nagar, while buses from Warangal Town will stop at Uppal Ring Road. The passenger is not required to come to MGBS to shuttle. Venkanna went on to say that the TSRTC operates buses from the settlement area for the benefit of residents as well as nearby educational institutions where around 20 to 25 groups can board the buses. This service is available for the nine days of the Dussehra celebration.
The TSRTC regional manager added that Hyderabad operates around 80 premium luxury AC buses in the Twin Cities. As many employees work from home, there is less demand for AC buses; therefore, TSTCR converted these luxury AC buses to Rajdhani buses. Nizamabad, Armoor, Bodhan, Karimnagar and Warangal are all served by these buses. âApart from that, we also introduced AC buses to Mehboob Nagar,â he continued.
Andhra Pradesh will operate special buses during Dussehra

However, on the other hand, the general manager revealed that the cost of traveling on these vehicles would be 1.5 times higher than that of regular bus tickets. When asked why the costs would be higher, Rao explained that the buses are only crowded on one side of the road during the festivities. So, without the increase in ticket prices, the APSRTC would suffer a monetary loss. He urged people to understand the problem.
