Now, ST bus passengers can directly file their complaints

The passengers of State Transport (ST) buses face difficulties due to various reasons and when they file a complaint about the same, they usually go unanswered. This has resulted in a communication gap between the passengers and the authorities. Therefore, to bridge the gap, ST Corporation has directed all the buses to display the telephone numbers of all its depot chiefs.

Moreover, the ST buses have also asked to share the numbers of all its Head of Departments. Meanwhile, Transport Minister and MSRTC Chairman Anil Parab has asked the concerned authorities to make necessary arrangements for the same on a priority basis.

On average, ST buses record a daily ridership of 67 lakh passengers and these passengers have troubles reaching out to the concerned authorities, in case of an issue. Taking in consideration the communication gap, the ST Corporation intends to resolve these issues as soon as possible.
