The ‘buggy cart’ ride launched earlier in 2022 at the Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station is getting a favorable response from the bus passengers. The energy-efficient e-vehicle is similar to a golf cart and at once can seat 12 passengers. On average, it helps around 2,000 people and their luggage reach their respective platforms from CBS (Central Bus Station) at Gowliguda to MGBS.


The officials say that the cart was introduced as part of the TSRTC’s endeavor to improve services for the travelers at MGBS, also called Imlibun station. The TSRTC management decided to provide free service of this battery-operated cart to reduce the strain on passengers reaching the station along with their luggage by foot.


While the cart is free for anyone to use but pregnant women, physically challenged, and senior citizens get priority. This cart has been manufactured by Bengaluru-based Maini Group. According to an official at MGBS, this cart is similar to those being operated at the airport. The Corporation may introduce more carts depending on the response. Right now, it makes 130 to 150 trips in the CBS, dropping people at their respective platforms.


This initiative is being touted as the brainchild of the TSRTC MD VC Sajjanar. The cart operates between 6 am and 10 pm and covers a distance of around 50 meters in the station premises. A single trip takes an average of five minutes, and two drivers work 8-hour shifts.


The vehicle’s battery is efficient, and this e-vehicle is contributing to the smooth transfer of passengers without pollution. Many passengers were surprised to see this vehicle being offered free, which makes them reach their platform with ease.
