Port Blair, July 9: The Member of Parliament, Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma after observing the difficulties faced by the general public has requested the Director of Transport, A&N Administration to commence STS bus services between Chatham and GB Pant Hospital and also between Garacharma and GB Pant Hospital and vice versa. 

He said that due to non-availability of transportation facilities between these two stretches, the general public and patients coming from Bambooflat and Garacharma area for various purposes including medical treatment are facing untold difficulties. This is also because the services of private buses are yet to resume and Auto Rikshaws are allowed to carry limited persons in view of COVID-19 restrictions.

 The MP has therefore requested the Director to commence STS bus services in the mentioned routes ensuring three trips (morning, afternoon and evening) daily for convenience of general public and patients.
