In two weeks’ time, the Vytilla Mobility Hub will be functional 24X7. The decision was taken by the special committee appointed by the government at a meeting held in Thiruvananthapuram . 37 buses which ply in the Alappuzha-Kottayam route will have to operate through the hub after 8 pm.
32 buses which operate from West Kochi will ply through the hub between 8pm and 8 am as connecting services. Two-weeks’ time has been allowed for the KSRTC to reschedule its services. The new arrangement will continue for 6 months, after which more buses will be procured for the purpose and decisions will be taken regarding allocation of more circular services. Though a proposal was made to convert it into a 24 hour affair, the KSRTC had refused it stating the lack of connecting services. The special three-member committee, comprises the KSRTC managing director, the Vyttila Mobility Hub Society managing director and the transport secretary.
