KOZHIKODE: To help the city dwellers here, especially the non-Keralite residents, the district administration has launched on Saturday a numbering system for the buses. With the Unique Numbering System for Bus Routes (UNSBR), introduced for the city buses, travellers can easily identify the buses and their routes. Migrant labourers mainly from West Bengal, Gujarat, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Bihar, Tamil Nadu and Uttaranchal are expected to make use of it.
Social Welfare Minister M K Muneer inaugurated the programme. The system will help the elderly also to identify the bus with the USBNR. Nearly 100 buses plying in the city have been issued UNSBR numbers.
“This will be of great use for the city commuters. We have given time until November 1 for the bus owners to put the number signs on their buses. As many as 100 of them have been covered under the project in the first phase,” said Kozhikode RTO.
