Thiruvananthapuram: Circular city services have been launched by the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) in Thiruvananthapuram with buses sporting attractive colours. On the inaugural day, 38 services were conducted by the City depot of KSRTC and 28 by the Peroorkada depot. These buses are painted with colours such as red, blue, magenta, yellow, violet and green.

Mobile app soon
Incidentally, only a few passengers boarded the circular services in the morning on the inaugural day as there were no destination boards on the front side of the buses. In fact, the boards were fixed only on the sides of the public carriers. Later in the afternoon, KSRTC authorities installed the place names on the front side and some passengers boarded the buses.

According to the authorities, route maps of the circular services would soon be displayed at all bus stops in the city. A mobile app too for passengers is planned, they added.

“We need at least three months to attract regular commuters to the circular services,” said a KSRTC official.

Frequency, fares
The circular services are conducted at intervals of 15 minutes during peak hours and 30 minutes during non-peak hours. While the minimum charge on these buses is Rs 10, the maximum is Rs 30.
