TSRTC launches parcel service
TSRTC has introduced RTC parcel service. RTC has 37 per cent of the buses catering to the requirements of interior villages in Telangana where there is no service by private vendors.
The TSRTC Corporation is working on a two-branched strategy.
- One, to provide facility for people to directly book parcels to be transported by RTC;
- Second, to have a tie-up with private players who will transport parcels up to certain points in towns and from there the RTC would move them to the interior villages.
The TRSTC is likely to fix the rate for parcels based on the weight and the distance they need to be carried.
