Telangana to offer free travel to exam hall for students with bus passes irrespective of where the centres are
This feature is available only to those having bus passes. Other students without the buss pass would have to pay the regular fares for travel
The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation's Greater Hyderabad Zone has announced special arrangements for intermediate exams and other annual examinations starting this month extending all the way to March. As part of making it convenient for students to travel, the zone has planned a slew of measures to ensure students reach their exam halls in time with the least hassle.
These measures would be applicable between February 1 to February 20 and from March 4 to March 23. One of the major efforts is making the travel free to the examination hall, irrespective of where the bus pass caters to. The officials inform that anyone showing a bus pass along with an exam hall ticket can travel free from their residence to the examination centers irrespective of the distance, origin, destination and time mentioned in the bus pass.
This feature is available only to those having bus passes. Other students without the buss pass would have to pay the regular fares for travel. Furthermore, to ensure buses ply on time as per schedule, and the proper stoppage of buses happen at major stops, supervisory staff will be deployed at major stops and bus bays. The students can avail necessary information from these staffers regarding the buses to their destination.
The zone will also be deploying zonal enforcement squad consisting of six jeeps to hold surveillance in morning hours to clear off the traffic from bus bays and ensure speedy movement of buses from important stops. The officials have also launched two helpline numbers at Koti and Rathi file bus station with numbers, 9959226160 and 9959226154 respectively.
