Minimum fare brought down to ₹ 5 from ₹7 in ordinary service
Here is good news for city bus passengers. The APS RTC has reduced the minimum fares from₹ 7 to ₹ 5 in ‘City Ordinary’ and from ₹ 8 to ₹5 in Metro Express buses.
The fares have been rounded off in other stages to avoid change problem, according to Regional Manager Sudesh Kumar and Deputy CTM Sudha Bindu.

new ticket denominations are City Ordinary ₹ 5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 25 and so on and the Metro Express fares are ₹ 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 etc.
There is no change in TAYL (Travel As You Like) tickets and Bus Passes. Senior citizen concessions will continue as usual.
The revised fares will come into effect from Tuesday (August 1).

The Bhubaneswar – Krishnarajapuram Humsafar weekly express (22833) has been running with vacant berths from Bhubaneswar since its inauguration.
On July 31, there were 471 vacant berths from Bhubaneswar but from Visakhapatnam it was a waiting list (WL) 3 on this train. It’s a loss to Indian Railways, says RTI activist K. Eswar, who Tweeted the same to the Railway Minister.
“The quota of berths from Visakhapatnam is very less compared to the demand and the vice-versa at Bhubaneswar. I checked the IRTTC website at 6.30 p.m. again and it showed 458 berths available from Visakhapatnam on 22833,” he said.
“But, within three minutes it was changed to berths ‘not available’. I suspected foul play by the railway authorities concerned and Tweeted to the CRB and other officials to show the revenue from the sale of the 458 tickets in three minutes.”
