Vamanjoor people irked over Pvt bus services


Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Sep 12, 2016: Reports confirm that the people of Vamanjoor and surrounding places — upcoming residential localities off Mangaluru-Moodabidri Highway near the city — are having a tough time commuting to and from Kulur, Baikampady and neighbouring areas.   Bus operators, who have permits to run services towards Baikampady, often cancel trips thereby inconveniencing the public.

According to a resident of Vamanjoor, six private operators have permits to run services between Vamanjoor and Baikampady via Kavoor and Kuloor.  But they never stick to the schedule.  On a government holiday or a Sunday, more than half the services don’t operate. Passengers end up waiting for long hours and crowding themselves into the few buses that run.

Another resident of the area, said that there is usually a heavy rush of travellers to the Vamanjoor area that houses the Pilikula Nisargadhama on holidays and weekends.  There aren’t enough buses plying even to downtown areas during peak hours. City services operate at a frequency of about 15-20 minutes from Vamanjoor to State Bank during peak hours.  The services are insufficient since the area is emerging as a popular residential locality, particularly for the middle and lower-middle classes, he said.

People have demanded that the RTA, Regional Transport Authority act seriously  against erring bus operators.

Meanwhile, the KSRTC should be allowed to operate services between Vamanjoor and Baikampady to break the private bus monopoly. They also indicated that KSRTC services were comfortable safe and secure.

Private buses give a good service in the city. But their competition kills the public. tha Government low floor buses are more convenient for all age groups
