At this point in time, COVID is in control, at least in Hyderabad city. But in the past two years, the corona has impacted the lives of people in a big way. It led to financial and mental distress and took the lives of many. However, one issue that it has created is the increase in vehicles plying the city roads.


Well, during the pandemic, there was much stress on social distancing, and given the situation then, many started using their vehicles to commute to the city. Though the pandemic has subsided, now the people are used to commuting in their own vehicles, and this is creating new social problems.


There are heavy traffic jams, lots of pollution and less usage of public transport in the city. For example, if 5 lakh people used Metro prior to the pandemic, the number has fallen to 2 lakh right now. The railways have cut down on the number of MMTS trains due to a lack of demand. In the case of RTC, 4000 buses are used to ply the roads. But now, the number has been cut down to 2800.


Another issue is that it has become extremely critical for traffic police to address traffic problems. If there is a jam for 10 minutes, the traffic movement is affected for two to three hours. At peak times, the situation is worse. All those who invested in their own vehicles during the pandemic are now reticent to use public transport. About 20 lakh new vehicles have been added to already existing vehicles.


The problem does not end here. As of now, of the 6 lakh software employees, only 30 percent have returned to work. The situation would be worse when all of them return to the office!
