A Welcome Move by the MTC
Imagine a day when there is 0% foot boarding in buses in Chennai. It’s not far away. The MTC has decided to go for only buses with doors. As part of the major fleet expansion that’s planned before Deepavali, 1000 buses are to be added [augmentation and replacement included] and it’s been recommended to have doors in all.
This is a welcome move by the MTC. Hopefully, we’ll see less news of ‘man slips from footboard from bus and runover by mtc bus’ in Hindu page 3.
