Now the conductors are hesitant to cut the tickets with the passengers. Now the management is considering changing the system of cutting tickets for passengers. In this the conductor will sit on the first seat. Tickets for passengers will be made from the window. Only after that the passengers will be able to enter the bus and travel. The HRTC Joint Coordination Committee has demanded the corporation management to implement this arrangement. Apart from this, a demand has been made for sanitization of buses, arrangement of soap for drivers-operators, scans for thermal screening of passengers etc. However, the management has demanded There is no seating arrangement for the passengers on the first, second and third seats. Cabins have been asked to be built for the drivers. Until this arrangement is done, ropes have been asked to be put around the seat. Joint Coordination Committee secretary Khamendra Gupta said that fear has arisen in cutting tickets due to the conductors getting infected.
