For teachers and officials involved in preparatory work ahead of the class 10 public exams, special buses will ply at 9 a.m. and at 4 p.m. from June 8 onwards in Chennai.

As many as 41 MTC bus routes have been identified for this.

While one bus will ply at 7.30 a.m. and the other at 8 a.m. to pick everyone up and drop them at the centres, buses will ply again at 1.45 p.m. and 2.15 p.m. to help facilitate travel from the centres back to their homes.

Minister for School Education K.A. Sengottaiyan had said that owing to travel restrictions, the State government would organise transport facilities to ensure that all students are able to reach their exam centres.
