Hubballi: Do you avoid using public transportation because of the long walk to the bus stop? Buses may soon arrive just near your house to pick you up; yes you read it right. In order to improve last-mile connection, the Hubballi-Dharwad Bus Rapid Transit System (HDBRTS) will start feeder bus services from Navanagar and Sutgatti this week, said HDBRTS MD Bharat S.
BRTS-RTO bus station will be the connecting point, he said, and added that, based on the response from the public, other areas of the twin cities will be connected in the future. On an experimental basis, passengers with monthly smart cards will be allowed to travel free on feeder service buses.
HDBRTS officials aim to make HDBRTS more accessible to passengers through this new service.
