VISAKHAPATNAM:  The trial run of TVs in some city buses has been going on a pilot basis for the past three months. After monitoring the technical problems and rectification, the APSRTC officials are ready to launch the first phase of the project by February-end in 100 buses.

To check the proper functioning of the TVs and identifying the problems to improve the function, the TVs have been set up in 20 city buses operated on various routes. Since the pilot project is done and a few of the technical problems which were emerged solved, the next 80 buses will be facilitated with TVs.

“In the first phase we have limited it to 100 buses and later we will extend the facility in the rest of the buses plying within the city limits. It will include both the metro and ordinary buses. At present, 20 TVs are fixed in ordinary buses,” said G Sudesh Kumar, the APSRTC regional manager, Visakhapatnam. 

“The response was good from commuters too and now we are ready to take it further. As it is within the city some comedy shows and other entertaining shows are being telecast unlike the intercity buses in which films are being screened,” he added.
