Mangalore-Kasargod inter-state bus services have finally begun as of today. Passengers are being transported by buses from both the Karnataka and Kerala road administrations. This has provided relief to daily travelers, such as students and employees, who were having a tough time crossing the border.
Due to high COVID positivity rates in Kerala, regular bus services have been stopped for the last few months. Daily, all private vehicles traveling across the border were inspected at Talapady.
