KSRTC buses too will be brought under its ambit once the concurrence of its head office is received.

A radio-frequency enabled digitized punching station established at the Vyttila Mobility Hub will be inaugurated on August 11.

Its trial run has already begun, to ensure that private buses run on time. “Over 100 of the 450 private buses that operate from here have been given the card for the purpose; 350 of them have paid for the card,” said M. Beena, the managing director of the Vyttila Mobility Hub Society.

KSRTC buses too will be brought under its ambit once the concurrence of its head office is received. Currently, their manual punching system is working well. “The data obtained through the punching will be stored in the digitized format. Based on this, we will be able to inform passengers of the bus timings. An information counter will be opened following this. Later, the timings will be beamed across display boards,” said Ms. Beena.

She added that inter-State buses will soon be stationed at the hub, based on a decision taken by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA).
