Referring to the ST buses reliability and punctuality vis-à-vis private operators, he said that it has undergone change in 24x7 work culture, maintaining drivers and conductors being the mainstay of ST, as it covers 98 per cent of the state’s villages and 99 per cent of the population. It offers concession to students, service to senior citizens.

The ST’s new five-storey central corporate office is built on PPP basis on 4,887 square metres, with modular sitting arrangement at a cost of Rs 7.50-crore. The ‘command and control’ room to keep track of departure and arrival of a fleet of 7,465 buses, their halts at scheduled intermediate stoppages through GPS, is to make ST bus service more popular than private ones.
