As a part of an initiative to attract more patronage to its long distance buses, APSRTC is introducing food facility in its buses. Passengers boarding the bus can call a fixed helpline 3-4 hours before the journey and order their food. The agency will deliver the food and collect the amount on the spot. In a fee days, a facility to pay money online will also be introduced.
Roti, Biriyani, Meals, Sandwich and others are the items in the menu. This new scheme is introduced in 15 Garuda, Garuda Plus, Vennela buses for 6 months along the routes of Vishakapatnam, Bangalore, Pune, Shiridi, Chennai, Kakinda and Tirupati and will later be extended to all the routes. Phone number to order is 8688931666. Full details of this scheme is available in www.alongtheway.in.
