The buses will be operated between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. in Andhra Pradesh in tune with the relaxation hours in that State.

Except Bengaluru, the services will be operated between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. in Karnataka. As the State has imposed curfew on the weekends, the buses will not be operated from 7 p.m. on Fridays to 5 a.m. on Mondays.
