These vehicles often met with accidents, and many people lost their lives in these accidents. So to curb the situation, CM announced plans for safe and cheap traveling during wedding.
The buses have been painted with colors and design influenced from wedding, a regular commute in this bus, will evoke a similar feeling like going to a wedding. ST Corporation decorated bus with the painting of bride and groom, and other scenes of wedding rituals. Currently, 12 such buses have been prepared by corporation. In next few days, there is a plan to provide one bus each to 125 bus depots in 16 divisions.
