City commuters decry poor public transport in evening hours

People Calling People Calling / Good Morning Kashmir

Commuters in the city are complaining that the authorities have failed to ensure the presence of public transport in the evening hours.

Commuters, particularly women, are annoyed with the non-availability of evening public transportation on important city routes such as Lal Bazar, Soura, and Pampore, which forces them to leave for home early.

“Finding a bus in the evening has become difficult. We have had this problem before, but it has got worse for the last one month, ” a local from Lal Bazar said, adding that the government must ensure public transport on this route as it leads to SKIMS which is a premier hospital in the valley.

The problem is mostly faced by the patients, working class and students. They said auto owners charge exorbitant rates in the evening hours.

“No one is taking any action. It seems even the administration stops working in the evening,” said a resident from Pampore, Mukhtiyar Ahmad.

The commuters said every day, they have to wait for more than 50 minutes for a bus or a Sumo.

City residents urged the Transport Commissioner to direct the concerned officials to address the issue at the earliest so that people do not face any inconvenience.
