To check steep rise in corona cases, night curfew has been declared from April 20.
So the TNSTC has made various changes in bus transport. In Erode district, 730 TNSTC and 269 private buses are being operated locally and other districts.
Private buses were operated from 5 am and 9 pm within Erode and to Salem, Tiruppur, Namakkal, Karur, Trichy, Mettur, Coimbatore and Palani.
Night traffic has been suspended due to the night curfew. Most people do not like to travel on buses as the corona infection is rising sharply.
So, the private bus owners reduced their service by 30 percent and said that as diesel price is high, they face problem in operating all buses with less passengers.
