This is for students who have city bus pass to travel in metro services can be used,” TSRTC said in a tweet.
The Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) issued bus pass will henceforth be eligible for use on the Palle Velugu and Express services in view of student overcrowding. The announcement was made by the TSRTC Managing Director on Tuesday.
The decision was made due to an acute shortage of TSRTC buses which renders travel difficult for students.

As of the moment, only 500 buses are available for college students.
