MUMBAI: MSRTC has barred pregnant women and citizens above 65 years and below 10 years from travelling on ST buses, that began operating in certain districts on Friday.
In two days, the buses plying in 31 non-red zones ferried more than 20,000 commuters in over 4,000 trips, said sources.
Sources further said MSRTC was strictly following social distancing, with no more than 22 passengers in a bus. Masks are compulsory. In a few districts, the ST buses were running with very few passengers – three to five in a bus.
