Private Bus Owners Warn to Suspend Services Via Hejmady: This is The Reason?

Kinnigoli Valaya Bus Malakara Sangha president and Canara Bus Owners’ Association vice-president Durgadas Hegde said that toll plaza operator, M/s Navayuga Udupi Tollway Pvt. Ltd., has been insisting on toll fee payment by shuttle buses plying via the Hejmady village road too from February 17. he mentioned that even though erection of toll gate on the village road per-se was illegal, the company had exempted shuttle buses from paying the toll since then (2019). Of the about 40 shuttle buses, 32 were now operating post COVID-19 lockdown and they make two to three round trips every day. The company has been demanding ₹200 for every round trip, which the operators were resisting as they could not pass on the additional burden on passengers who travelled only short distances. Express buses ply on the Mangalore-Udupi sector but shuttle buses do not ply on the entire length of the national highway and move through interior village roads. They operate between different destinations, including Mangalore – Karkala via Padubidri, Kinnigoli – Padubidri, and other places via interior roads. Bus owners, who were already under loss, do not want to further incur losses and hence have decided to suspend the operations from March 15, Mr. Hegde added.
