No interstate KSRTC buses till Kasaragod TPR Fall below 3%

Though the surrounding district in Kerala has had a drop in daily instances of Covid-19, the Dakshina Kannada district government does not appear to be in a hurry to restore interstate KSRTC bus services between Mangaluru and Kasaragod. The bus services between Mangaluru and Kasaragod will not restart until the test positive rate in Kasaragod falls below 3%, as per the DK deputy commissioner. The TPR is still over 10%, adding that the limits would remain in place.

Meanwhile, noting the decrease in the number of new cases of Covid-19 in Kasaragod district, interstate daily commuters are confident that the Karnataka government will soon lift all border restrictions. In the last three weeks, the average daily cases in Kerala’s district have dropped dramatically from 150-200 to roughly 110. However, as compared to DK’s figure of 15, the number of daily instances is higher. After 55 cases were recorded on October 5, the district did not report more than 50 cases for more than a month.

Border surveillance will continue until November 10th, by an order issued by the district administration on October 27. Daily commuters from Kasaragod have been pleading for bus services to be restored as soon as possible since they are currently compelled to travel in two buses to reach Mangaluru. They must take ordinary buses from Kasaragod to Talapady, which stop at more than 50 bus stops because there are no KSRTC shuttle buses. To get to Mangaluru from Talapady, people must take municipal buses. A regular commuter noted that it takes more than two hours to go 50 kilometers from Kasaragod to Mangaluru.
