Competition, not service is KSRTC's priority in Bagepalli


Buses belonging to the KSRTC are being parked in front of the bus stand rather than inside the bus stand blocking the footpath in front of the bus stand.

While pedestrians outside the bus stand suffer inconvenience, the passengers at the bus stand are left clueless about the buses’ timings.

“The KSRTC authorities seem to be worried about competition with the private transport services but not about the passengers,” rued people here.

No shelter

Owing to lack of bus stand, the private buses are using the area in front of the KSRTC bus stand as a result, people seem to be taking to private buses only. “This could have forced the KSRTC authorities to park their buses in front of the bus stand to give competition,” said the residents. But the authorities concerned seem to have turned a blind eye to it, they added. The negligence of the authorities concerned to haphazard parking of vehicles on the main road has come under severe criticism. The residents here have urged the authorities to provide a bus stand to private buses.
