Why not more point to point mini buses run by private parties?Why practshould the Government control all aspects of the transport facilities in cities? Take the example of T.Nadu. We have had private buses every where, in every other city. Except Chennai.
This is ridiculous. Why should even the mini buses by run by the Government? Yes, the mini buses do cover areas that the regular buses do not go to.. However, there is a terrific need to ply private mini buses to every railway station on the EMU and metro network at regular intervals. This will improve the traffic to these destinations and will encourage more travel by the EMU or metro trains.
The State Governments should give the license to private operators to ply mini buses in every city. This should be a pan-India practice. In Chennai, we do have the private vehicles that are sort of shared autos in specific areas. However, there are no mini buses to the vital stations on the EMU/metro network.
Can we act on this and get this done?
