GOA: Owing to the rising number Covid-19 cases, people prefer not to travel by public transport and the Kadamba Transport Corporation Ltd (KTC) is feeling the hit. The buses which are supposed to run at 50% capacity are operating with only 25% passenger strength, KTC officials said. For one people are beginning to heed the stay at home advisory and those that have to move out are opting to travel by their personal vehicles, the officials said.
“People are not getting out much these days. On an average we have ten passengers in each bus. This is only in the peak hours. During the rest of the day, we see fewer passengers. On Saturdays, the number is even lesser since there aren’t any government officials commuting,” KTC managing director, Venancio Furtado said.
