KSRTC to resume bus service to Andhra Pradesh from tomorrow

South India

Following commencement of inter-state bus service by Andhra Pradesh, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has decided to resume its services to the neighbouring state from June 17 in a phased manner.

In the first phase, buses will operate to popular destinations like Tirupati, Vijayawada and Mantralaya, said a News Minute report. The services will start from Bengaluru, Ballari, Raichur and Shahpur in Karnataka.

On the other hand, the Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) will also be resuming services to Karnataka from June 17. The two RTCs will be initially operating 160 buses each.

Passengers will be screened at boarding and alighting points in main bus stands.  "Passengers can book tickets in advance online on www.ksrtc.in or through KSRTC/Franchisee advance reservation counters," stated a KSRTC official.

Currently, over 3,000 buses are plying within Karnataka while inter-state buses to neighbouring states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra are yet to resume.
