RTC Strike: This is the Impact in Udupi & Mangalore

However, it did not affect people in Udupi district which is entirely dominated by private bus operators. Private buses also entered the main KSRTC bus stands in Mangalore and Udupi to pick up passengers. As the Kerala Road Transport Corporation operated its buses as usual between Kasaragod (Kerala) and Mangalore, inter-State commuters did not face much trouble.
Dakshina Kannada Deputy Commissioner K.V. Rajendra said that the district administration is considering using the services of the more than 2,000 heavy vehicle driving license holders in the district to run KSRTC buses. Along with this, contract carriage buses will be allowed to pick and drop passengers mid-way till KSRTC employees end their strike. Maxi-cabs having valid insurance cover and which are fit to operate will be permitted to ferry people, he added.
Dakshina Kannada District Bus Owners Association president Dilraj Alva said that private operators are operating 75 buses to Puttur and Uppinangady. As many as 10 buses are operating on the Mangalore – Dharmasthala route, two buses each to Mysuru and Kukke Subrahmanya and one bus to Hassan.
