Mangaluru: Dakshina Kannada’s bus operator’s association has now come up with the Shakti scheme to improve city buses and make them more convenient for the citizens to travel in Mangalore. 

This is mainly in view of the many challenges that buses have been facing today, with high insurance premiums, soaring diesel prices and not to forget, the competition it faces from KSRTC buses 

The association has also come forward with the DKBOA Card initiative, by which it aims to support school going children and make traveling pleasant and easy. 

Azhis Parthipadi, President of the Association also emphasized that students traveling without the card or even money to pay for their travel should not be humiliated but allowed to go on the bus for free. 

He further pointed out that there are about 34,000 students using city bus facilities today as seen from the number of applications that came forward for the DKBOA card. 

There was also an initiative to help elderly customers, where the association announced that those with offices on the second floor can now relocate them to the first floor. 

In addition to that, steps will be taken to address the issue of DJ songs being played in buses today, so as to make traveling safe. 

The event will see some of the most prominent figures like UT Khader, MLA Vedavtyas Kamath, MLC Manjunath Bhandary, Mayor Sudhir Kumar Shetty, Deputy Commissioner Mullai Muhilan police commissioner Anupam Agarwal, and DySP B P Dinesh Kumar all of who will be present that day.
