Demand For KSRTC Buses From Bhatkal to Kundapur Increases: This is The Reason

Kundapura (Kundapur) and Bhatkal, being the two important education hubs in mid-coastal Karnataka, attract hundreds of students from towns and villages abutting the Panvel-Kochin National Highway 66. With the Karnataka government providing free bus passes to girl students up to degree classes, the number of girls commuting by KSRTC buses is going up.

As the Bhatkal-Kundapura intercity service of Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) halted at Nagoor in Byndoor (Baindoor) taluk, the conductor urged waiting students, particularly, girls, to board the next bus, owing to lack of space in the section reserved for women.

General public too prefer KSRTC services as the fares are cheaper as compared to private services by at least 25%. The corporation has deployed 12 buses on the sector that do 7 single trips each every day, totalling 84 single trips.
