The Telangana State Road Transportation Corporation (TSRTC) is now mulling the idea of putting into service air-conditioned Vajra buses in the greater Hyderabad zone (GHZ). As per the data obtained through the Right to Information Act, GHZ had 21 such buses as a part of its fleet in 2017-18. Later the number went up to 25. However, in 2019-20, there were no such buses.


However, providing appropriate commuting options is the onus of TSRTC, and recent deliberations with TSRTC’s top officials have hinted at the possibility of Vajra buses making a comeback. The plan is to introduce 30 to 35 Vajra AC buses along various routes in the IT corridor. Each bus will have a capacity of 18 passengers and will ply between 10-15 kilometers.


When compared to other buses, Vajra buses will have fewer stops, and passengers will be charged flat rates. Also, in order to reduce operational costs, the buses will not have a conductor. This means that the passengers will have to pay the money to the driver while boarding the bus.


Once they have a final plan in place, TSRTC will be taking passenger feedback. It will also study the move’s profitability. Apart from enhancing passenger commute, the buses will also mean reduction in usage of private vehicles and promote the concept of using public transport wherever possible.
