The Kerala Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is planning to launch ‘Pink Bus’ with women conductors exclusively for women to travel. The service aimed at ensuring a safe journey for women will be launched in Thiruvananthapuram and the buses will be painted in pink with the name ‘Pink Bus’ on it. If found successful, the services will be extended to Kochi and other cities. Pink Bus is the brainchild of KSRTC’s new Chairman and Managing Director M.G. Rajamanickam, IAS.
A KSRTC official confirmed the development to The Kochi Post and said that works for the same are progressing at the Central Workshop of KSRTC in the Capital and the services will be launched very soon. The official refused to divulge more details.
Mr. Rajamanickam was not available for comment at the time of the story going to the press.
