As part of the Kochi Public Transport Day campaign, Transport Minister A.K. Saseendran opted to commute by public transport modes in the city on Thursday.

On arrival at Ernakulam Junction Railway Station by train at 9.45 a.m., he took an autorickshaw to reach Manorama Junction, from where he boarded a bus to alight at Ernakulam Boat Jetty bus stop. He then walked up to Ernakulam Guest House.

Exhorting the public to use public transport at least on the first Friday of each month, he said, “The rising number of road accidents, congestion and pollution is due to the increasing number of private vehicles on roads. This warrants reliance on public transport.”
