Kochi: On the third day of the new year, KSRTC received over Rs 6 crore through bus services. This is the highest revenue received through service during the Covid period. Officials said this was because January 3 was the first working day after the Christmas and New Year holidays, also due to the rush during Sabarimala season.

The revenue from the South zone was Rs 2,65,39,584, North zone was Rs. 1,50,23,872 and the Central zone was Rs 2,02,62,092 on Monday. It was more than Rs 8 crore during pre-Covid times.

KSRTC is getting good revenue from Nilakkal - Pamba service. The Nilakkal Assistant Special Officer said that the bus services are conducted by strictly adhering to the Covid protocol in the rush hour. Special services are available to Pamba from Chengannur, Kumily, Pathanamthitta, Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam and Kottayam.

The number of services also increases depending on the crowd and in connection with the ‘Makaravilakku’. Earlier, Kerala used to operate 5,800 bus services but now it is only 3,000 buses. During seasons, about 500 extra buses services are operated.
