Bus service from Goa to Malvan has suspended

GOA: Within weeks of resuming interstate transport after a six-month hiatus, Kadamba Transport Corporation Ltd (KTCL) bus service from Goa to Malvan has been suspended due to poor response. “There are no passengers for the Goa to Malvan trip. After gauging the response for a while, we decided to temporarily discontinue service on this route,” KTC general manager, Sanjay Ghate said.

KTC’s interstate bus service was resumed from September 5. Service was restored after a hiatus of 170 days on two Karnataka routes– Belagavi and Karwar. A few days later, buses to three destinations in Maharashtra were also restored. Nine buses left for Sawantwadi, Vengurla and Malvan on September 14 with a 30% passenger load. These routes were finalised by the KTC because of the short distances to these destinations.

“Currently, we have 18 buses operating in Karwar, Belagavi, Sawantwadi and Vengurla. We may resume buses to Malvan in December, depending on the demand. In addition to that we are also planning to resume all long-distance bus trips in December,” Ghate said.
