Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation has extended the tenure of 704 Superclass buses, which completed seven years. With this, the old buses will be taken to the road again. KSRTC has taken the decision as the buses were not in service during the Covid period.

The tenure of Fast Passenger, Super Fast, Super Express, Super Deluxe, Premium AC buses has been extended.

As per the norms of KSRTC, the expiry period of a bus is seven years. As the 704 buses which completed 7 years are not in service for 2 years, the KSRTC decided to extend its life.

The KSRTC MD requested the government to extend the tenure of the buses in view of the Sabarimala season, reopening of schools and inability to buy new buses. With this, the tenure of the buses which have a service period of above 6 years and below 9 years was extended.
