Hyderabad: Today, TSRTC Managing Director V.C. Sajjanar travelled incognito to MGBS by travelling from Lakdikapul in a city bus incognito.
The Managing Director stood at the bus stop at Lakdikapul and boarded the bus and travelled like a common man. After boarding the bus he purchased the bus ticket to travel to CBS from the Conductor and in the journey he interacted with the passengers. Neither the Conductor nor the Driver of the bus knew that M.D. was travelling in their bus.
Sajjanar, after reaching the Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station, went around the whole bus station premises and inspected thoroughly every nook and corner of the bus station. He also inspected the toilets. He interacted with the Driver and Conductors of District Buses. He had a thorough look at the sector-wise route boards.
Later, he held a meeting with Executive Director (HYD & KRMR) Munishekar and Regional Manager, Rangareddy Region who came there when he was going around. He advised the ED(H&K) to improve the cleanliness and aesthetics of the toilets at the bus station. He also desired that all unclaimed motorcycles lying there for many years should be shifted so that the appearance and the ambience can be significantly improved.
The Managing Director also said that the Corporation could generate additional revenue by way of advertisements and by giving the park to an outsourcing agency. He advised taking immediate steps to fill up all the vacant stalls to generate additional revenue. He also suggested exploring how non-traffic revenue can be improved in the bus station and during marriage season focus should be on group bookings and a sufficient amount of publicity should be given. There should also be the focus on the upcoming Dasara festival, wherein more passengers can be transported. (INN)
