Hyderabad: The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) is all set to run 5,265 special buses from Hyderabad to different parts of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and other states to clear the festive rush during Bathukamma and Dasara festivals.
According to RTC, the special buses will be operated between October 13 to 25. The passengers will be able to make advance reservations in 536 special buses.
