TIRUCHI: Several mofussil buses skip the Bharathidasan University stop, causing much hardship to students and varsity staff. The State Transport Corporation does not operate town bus service from the city to the university and commuters have to depend on the mofussil buses.
"Leave alone the point-to-point or long-route services, even the buses operated on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai sector do not stop here," says an employee of the university. Commuters have to seek the permission of the crew buses before boarding them at the Central Bus Stand.
A few conductors turn down the request while some allow them to board the buses at the last minute.
Parents feel that the Transport Corporation should operate town buses.
