Covid-19 lockdown: Partial ST bus services in Maharashtra from tomorrow

The Maharashtra government on Thursday decided to start out intra-district State Transport (ST) bus services, excluding in red and Covid-19 containment zones, from Friday with certain conditions.

The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) announced resumption of intra-district bus operations from May 22 (Friday).

The bus operations will resume with certain terms and conditions, the MSRTC said during a statement within the evening.

The state-owned conveyance body had stopped it's statewide bus operations since March 22 thanks to 'janata curfew' and therefore the subsequent Covid-19-enforced lockdown.

Since the past two months, MSRTC's bus operation has been restricted to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, where it's ferrying staffers on emergency and essential services duty.

Since the primary week of May, the corporation has also ferried over two lakh migrants till Maharashtra's borders with other states and to varied districts within the state.
