Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) plans to deploy small carrier vehicles to transport passengers from remote areas to routes where KSRTC buses are available.

The project aims to provide transportation facilities using mini-vans and auto-rickshaws for those passengers living in areas where buses are unreachable. MVD will soon issue permits to vehicles coming under the project.

Vehicles, including auto-rickshaws and those vehicles carrying a maximum of 18 passengers, will receive the permit. KSRTC will soon release a notification in this regard.

Through the project, KSRTC aims to eliminate vehicles illegally conducting services on nationalised roads. The project also seeks to revive the crisis-hit taxi industry. Further, KSRTC aims to bring a coordinated traffic system to the state.

Small vehicles that are part of the public transport system will also be brought under KSRTC's centralized online system. For example, a person who buys tickets online for KSRTC can use the public transport system near home.
