Abstract

India's public transport systems are among most heavily used in the world. Public transport is the primary mode of road transport for most of the citizens of India. This Covid-19 crisis has crippled all sectors of the economy across the world. One of the worst affected sector by this pandemic is public transport. During the lockdown, the bus services, metro, trains as well as flights were completely stopped by the Government of India. Nobody was allowed to travel even in private vehicles as it would have increased the risk of infection until and unless it was very important. Now, since the public transport operators are allowed to resume their services, they are focussing on how to overcome the losses they have met during this lockdown period. This lockdown has hit them seriously as people are concerned about their safety and moving out and travelling. This paper represents how much loss the public transport sector has faced during lockdown due to corona virus disease-2019 and what measures should public transport operators has to take to recover their loss.
