Mangaluru, June 05, 2020: A few crew of the city buses in Mangaluru have decided to wear personal protective equipment or PPE kits while discharging their duties. A conductor of the Route No. 6 city bus operating on the State Bank-Shaktinagar route has already donned the PPE kit as a preventive measure.
Though the government has issued strict instructions to maintain social distancing in buses and ensure only 50 percent of the sets are occupied, this conductor has decided to go in for the PPE kit to ensure safety against Coronavirus.
This move is welcomed considering the fact that many city buses are finding it difficult to ensure social distancing.
