Metro services are about to start on 29 Nov i.e first phase of the metro which is about 30 kms.Fares of metro are also very affordable when campare to ac buses and the facilities at the metro and time consuming is also so less.
So people will start using metro services does this effect the local city RTC bussiness let us go into detail.Metro services are for about 72 kms completlet for example let us consider JBS metro stop but metro is not available beyond that towards Aleal or kompally or towards bachupally or towards vanathalipuram or towards boduppal or towards thukkuguda or towards gandi maisamma. Anyhow to all these routes buses should be available to travel. We can npt say that metro will not effect RTC but only to some extent as of now it wont effect in future after full completion it might effect.
Any how RTC is in huge loss GHMC is also funding RTC from its budget. Even RTC can also stop recruiting new people even after retirement of so many people. Its better to decrease the size of the RTC in all aspects.
