PUBLIC BUS SERVICE ALTERS TIMING FOR STUDENT
It’s rare that a single passenger can get a public bus service to change its timings, but that’s exactly what a student in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, accomplished recently through a polite request.
Sai Anwesh Amrutam Pradhan sent a series of tweets to Capital Region Urban Transport (CRUT) and its managing director Arun Bothra.
Identifying himself as a student at MBS Public School and addressing Bothra as “Respected Sir,” Sai wrote: “I use Mo Bus as my daily transportation means to go to school. Nowadays the timing of the buses are changed. My reporting time at school is sharp at 7:30 AM. But unfortunately the first bus of route no-13 leaves at 7:40 AM from Lingipur. As a result I will be late for my school. And for this reason I am facing a lot of problems.”
Sai finished his message with this request: “So I would be grateful to you if you kindly look into the matter and take some immediate action.”
Bothra responded the very next day. “Dear Sai, #MoBus moves with love of commuters like you,” he tweeted. “The timing of your bus will be changed from Monday. The first bus will start at 7 AM. You won’t be late for school.”
Bothra shared a photo of Sai taking the bus at 7 a.m. on Monday. “CRUT crew members were very excited to take pics with the VIP commuter,” he wrote.
