To help the travelers easily connect to Mysore, the KSRTC (Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation) has now introduced 6 Volvo buses that will ply between Mandya and Mysore districts, respectively. Karnataka Transport minister R Ashok flagged off 6 new Volvo buses to Mysore on July 24th. The fare for the distance is Rs 50. However, to popularize the bus service, the minister said he has directed the KSRTC staff to fix Rs 25 for the first 3 days. "I will also discuss with the officials to fix the fare at Rs 40, instead of Rs 50," R. Ashok added.
Plans are also chalked out to commission Volvo service in all the cities so that people will experience the comfort of travelling. KSRTC, being the premier transport authority in India, is always first at adopting high-tech changes in transporting system.
With a view to help tourists, a circuit type transport system will be set up in the near future so that tourists will visit all tourism places without hassles. KSRTC also offers special weekend services where special buses operate from Bangalore to destinations like Trichy, Madurai, Ooty, Kodaikanal, Coimbatore, Pondicherry and other places during weekends.
