Mangaluru, April 28, 2019: There have been constant complaints that city bus conductors of the more than 300 buses plying daily arely issue ticket to the passengers for the fares paid, no ticket system was accepted here. In order to correct the situation, City Bus Owners Association has decided to implement ticket inspection system in the city buses.
The city bus transport system is becoming digital by the day. Only recently was the ’Chalo’ app released here and all the buses plying in the city have been fixed with GPS. Even though the transport system has been modernized so much, no effective solution has been found so far to the problem of not providing the ticket. Therefore henceforth, ticket checking personnel will check for tickets on a selective basis to start with.
Ticket checking system has already been introduced on Statebank – Attavar – Mangaladevi (Route no 27) route and in a few days, will also be introduced on bus route passing via Talapady and Car Street. Phase by phase, this new system will be implemented in all city buses with the aim to make the conductors issue tickets strictly.
Dilraj Alva, President of the City Bus Owners Associations stated, “Conductors of all the city buses plying in the city must compulsory provide ticket to the passengers. In the event of the bus conductor failing to provide ticket, then the passenger may demand it from the conductor. We have introduced ticket booking facility for the effective functioning of the ticket system. In the coming days, it will be introduced in more buses.”
