KSRTC to allow transportation of cycles in long-distance services; fares slashed

Thiruvananthapuram: Good news for cyclists, the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will allow cycles, e-bikes and e-scooters to be transported in the cargo of long-distance low-floor services.

State Minister for Transport, Antony Raju, said that the government has decided to allow the facilities in long-distance buses and Volvo/Scania services to Bengaluru beginning November 1.

“A specific charge will be applicable. The facilities have been enabled based on requests from passengers. The message here is that while the whole world is promoting cycling, Kerala is also ready to go along,” said the minister.
