MTC serves over 1 crore passengers in 10 days

Chennai: The Metropolitan Transport Corporation, which recently resumed its services after five months, has said over one crore people have travelled in city buses since the Tamilnadu government resumed public transport services from 1 September.

The public carrier said a revenue of over Rs 10 crore has been collected in the last 10 days by operating more than 2,400 buses daily.  It said about 1.01 crore commuters have travelled in its operated buses since 1 September.

In a statement, it said about six lakh people had travelled on day one of service and gradually the numbers increased. Owing to the increase in patronage, the corporation enhanced its services covering the areas catered by the suburban train service which has been temporarily suspended to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
