APS RTC is having system of CAT(Concessional annual travel) cards. CAT card price for first time is Rs 200, for second time is Rs 180, for 3rd time is Rs 160 and for 4th time is Rs 140. But CAT card holders get only 10% conession in tickets. They should atleast give 20% concession.

Increasing concession will not solve problem. Reducing charges will only solve problem.

Reducing charges is not possible. There are other ways like restricting private vehicles, running busses to the villages which are not having bus facility etc for improving patronage of RTC.

Private vehicles are compititing with APS RTC but not in all cases. My maternal grand father Mr Viswasarai Lakshmi Narayana used to have 2 private busses. He did not get adequate collections and he sold them. My mtaernal uncle Mr Pattika Lakshmaiah used to have 1 private bus. That also did not get adequate collections and he sold it. Not only APS RTC, some private operators are also in losses.
In India rich people become more rich and poor people become more poor. Because our politicians are following pro capitalistic policies.
