RTC strike off, commuters relieved.

Much to the relief of citizens, APSRTC buses were back on roads in Telangana region, carrying passengers to various destinations. Major bus stations Mahatma Gandhi bus station and Jubilee bus stand were one again buzzing with activity. The autowallahs inflated profits ran dry as passengers opted for much cheaper public transport, which they had been deprived off for several weeks.

Buses were cleaned and decked up at their respective depots as the entire RTC staff joined back their duties. The buses of Dilsukhnagar, Koti went packed with people. Services to Lingampally, Patancheru, NGOs colo-ny from Koti also went full. It is much relieving to get a bus to my place. Earlier I was paying Rs 200 and more to go to Ling-ampally from here. Even my bus pass was going waste, said Ms Anjali, a bank employee from Koti. The shopkeepers too felt relieved as they got into their business as usual. Super Luxury services, Garuda, Deluxe and Pallevelugu services also plied from the city.
