Mysuru: To revive the tourism sector in the post-pandemic phase, the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) has launched specially designed six double-decker buses called ‘Ambari’ for visits to tourist spots like Mysuru and the UNESCO World Heritage site Hampi.

According to sources, two of the buses will be stationed at Hampi, while the other four will ferry tourists in Mysuru.

The buses depart from the Mysuru Palace and go around the City, visiting historic and cultural sites. To attract more tourists ahead of the summer holidays, the KSTDC has reduced the fee from Rs. 250 to Rs. 150 per ticket.

At Nandi Hills, the KSTDC has offered two time slots and 50 per cent online bookings. A total of 1,250 tourists will be allowed through online booking during the two time windows – 6.00 am to 12.00 pm and 12.00 pm to 6.00 pm – while the other 1,250 will have direct access to the hill station.
