The RTC has made midnight services available under the name Night Riders. After 12.15, special trips are being conducted on Route 219 (Secunderabad - Patancheru) on an experimental basis. The RTC hopes to run Night Riders buses on more routes depending on the demand. Usually, RTC's last service departs at 10 PM and by midnight, the buses go to the depots.
RTC is planning another shift from 10 PM to 4 AM. This will be helpful for employees working Night shifts and for all those who want to enjoy the nightlife in the city. These services will also cut down the dependence on unreliable cab facilities at night. The charges in these times will be high. Passes will be valid on these buses.
Greater RTC ED Yadagiri, however, said that bus pass users must show their identity cards along with the pass. If you do not have an ID card, you need to take a ticket. Bus pass users traveling without an ID card will be fined Rs 500. Based on a survey by depot managers, RTC is planning to run these buses from Hayathnagar to Patancheru, and other high-density routes such as Mehdipatnam to Uppal X Road and Koti to Lingampally via Mehdipatnam
