Travel from Hosur to Bangalore to Hosur
Thousands of people in Hosur are working in Bangalore. Also, thousands of Tamil speaking people from Karnataka travel to Tamil Nadu through Hosur every day. The suspension of bus service has hampered their travel between two states.
The people from Hosur used to take town bus till Zoozuvadi checkpost and walk across the border to take bus in Attibele to visit Bangalore. Vice versa, the Bangalore passengers get down at Attibele and walk across the border to take town bus in Zoozuvadi check post to Hosur.
Now both the state governments have resumed operations between the states. The buses are ferrying passengers from both the states through Hosur since Monday. The people in Hosur are happy that the bus service has been resumed.
It may be noted that hundreds of students from Hosur are studying in Bangalore colleges. Now the colleges in Bangalore are slowly opening after a long shutdown due to pandemic. The resumption of bus service has come as relief to the students travelling from Hosur to Bangalore.
