A mini bus is to be re-launched by MTC from Mandaveli to Adyar. This is route S17.
The bus on this route was functioning some years ago and was suspended for reasons not known.
This service will cover areas like Thiruveedhi Amman Koil Street, Kamaraj Salai, Greenways Road, Billroth Hospitals, C P Ramaswamy Road, Bheemanapet, TTK Road ( Crowne Plaza hotel side), Kottur Market zone, Patrician College and Gandhi Nagar / Adyar.
Mylapore MLA Dha. Velu says this bus is mainly to cater to students who attend GCC and state-run schools who do not have bus transport links to the campus from home and for daily-wage workers.
“Students in schools in Alwarpet, R. A. Puram and Kottur have been asking me for this service,” adds the MLA.
The service is to be launched soon.
