It has become a daily nuisance for students studying at various professional colleges on the outskirts of the city. Most of them have no choice but to take the RTC buses to reach their destination and back home. However, this is no ordinary task for them as the RTC does not ply enough buses between these areas, and the distances are long for many students.


With many professional colleges located on the outskirts, college students are fighting a daily battle to go to college. Unfortunately, the private colleges have conveniently taken their fleet of buses off roads post-pandemic. Now, the entire onus is on RTC, which too has cut bus services in many areas.


The students are caught up in the mess as there are a low number of ordinary buses plying, the category that will accept their passes. In fact, in the past, the students held dharnas demanding that the RTC increase the number of buses it plies. However, of late, they have taken to social media are tagging the concerned officials and authorities to highlight their problems.


There are tweets that read – Request to increase buses from Chaitanyapuri to Hayathnagar, especially for college students. And the MA&UD minister was tagged to this tweet. Some students rue that few students fell off the footboards and even got injured. The situation is worse for places such as Ibrahimpatnam, Moinabad, and Medchal. Some have to ply between Shamshabad and Secunderabad, and their situation is pitiable.


Students have also tagged videos of boys and girls hanging from footboards and running along with the buses for quite some distance before the bus comes to a halt. As for RTC officials, they maintain that they have added 30-40 buses in coordination with the Rangareddy region, which is running palle velugu buses. Meanwhile, they also blame private institutions that have kept their buses off roads.
