KTC resumed buses to Maharashtra

A GOA: Interstate buses of the Kadamba Transport Corporation Ltd (KTC) resumed buses to Maharashtra for short distance destinations. A total of nine buses left for Sawantwadi, Vengurla and Malvan with a 30% load factor. “So far, the response from passengers has been good. We will, however, gauge the performance of these buses for one week and accordingly decide about its continuation,” KTC general manager, Sanjay Ghate said.

It may be a while until operations to other routes, like Mumbai or Pune, see light of day. “At the moment, we will not be starting any buses on the long distance routes. Moreover, there is no load factor on these routes. The decision will depend on the position of the pandemic,” Ghate said.

Travellers can directly visit the KTC bus stand and board these buses to travel to Maharashtra. As of now, the KTC has not opened up its online booking facility for interstate buses. Their prior attempts to open online bookings were met with very poor response.
