Hyderabad: The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) on Tuesday informed that in the pursuit of making the bus journey easy and encouraging citizens to travel by state-run buses, a bus tracking facility via a mobile app is made available for improving the accuracy of the state-run public transport service.
TSRTC MD Sajjanar announced that TSRTC has launched a mobile app in the Google play store by the name “TSRTC BUS TRACKING” for tracking of its buses. This initiative will help the passengers to know the arrival and departure of buses at various stops across Telangana and nearby states where TSRTC services are available so that the passengers can plan their travel to avoid unwanted waiting time at the bus stops/stations.
As part of the initiative, 96 depots across Telangana and 4170 special type buses have been identified for implementation of bus tracking and to provide the Expected Time of Arrival (ETA) of their bus services for convenience of passengers.
