BRTS’ ONGC-airport service to start today

Surat: There is some good news for air travellers. Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) will launch the BRTS bus services from airport to the ONGC terminal starting from Wednesday.
In February this year the airport authorities had requested the civic body to extend the BRTS service to the airport in order to facilitate the passengers alighting on the airport from other states and cities.
The civic body is running the BRTS from Udhna-Magdalla and Pilod till TGB hotel on Dumas road. Recently, the civic body has introduced direct city buses from Chowk Bazaar to Dumas as well.
Sources said that private cabs have been charging hefty fares from the passengers arriving at the airport due to the absence of public transportation system. The passengers have to pay Rs 600 for one-way transfer from airport to different parts of the city.
The BRTS bus service to airport will be inaugurated by mayor Ashmita Shiroya in the presence of airport officials on Wednesday.
