The private buses were lined up on the GST Road near Perungalathur and traffic cops on duty could not handle the traffic. Soon more staff were brought in to regulate the traffic. The people were also suffering
since the MTC buses were also operating in fewer numbers. Usually, the passengers who get down at Perungalathur would mostly travel by local trains but now since the local trains have not started to operate, the passengers had to wait for the buses. However, many complained that only a few buses operated and they needed to go in search of autos and call taxis.
However, since there were no schools and most of the IT employees are working from home, the traffic congestion was less in Perungalathur compared to the previous year, sources said.
