Public transport facilities in Hyderabad came under immense pressure on Wednesday with RTC bus strike entering its fifth day. Large number of commuters returning to Hyderabad from their home towns following completion of Dasara vacations had tough time finding alternative public transport facilities like railways and private buses on Wednesday.

With not many RTC buses available to travel, the Secunderabad railway station was packed to the brim with passengers from districts. Majority of TSRTC buses remained off the roads in Hyderabad and other parts of the State.

Few buses were seen plying on the roads in the state capital. The daily commuters continue to face tough time in reaching their destinations. Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS) and Jubilee Bus Station (JBS), two biggest bus stations in Hyderabad wore a near deserted-look.

Most of the 10,400 buses of the state-owned utility remained confined to depots across the state as over 48,000 employees stayed away from duties. TSRTC authorities were operating skeletal services with the help of temporary drivers and other employees. Those returning to Hyderabad from Warangal, Nizamabad, Karimnagar and Warangal after the Dasara vacations were facing hardships due to cancellation of the bus services.
