    In the western sector of Hyderabad, professionals working in the IT/ITES industry are facing a major challenge. There is a lack of efficient public transportation near their workplaces, which makes it difficult for them to commute conveniently and on time. Many employees are dealing with the problem of inadequate transit options, which causes delays in reaching their workplaces.

    One of the main concerns for IT employees who arrive at the Raidurg metro station is not only the lack of accessible public transportation but also the heavy traffic congestion in the surrounding areas. This congestion is caused by the increasing number of IT employees using private vehicles, which leads to delays in reaching their destinations. The reliance on private vehicles has contributed to the worsening traffic gridlock and calls for a multifaceted approach to solve this problem.

    IT employees are not only dissatisfied with the lack of transportation options but also with the chaotic traffic snarls they encounter on their way to work. The rapid growth of residential areas in places like Madhapur, Kondapur, Lingampally, Gachibowli, and Kokapet is leading to a higher population density. If this trend continues without any measures taken, it will result in even more traffic problems and chaos on the roads.

    To tackle the traffic issue during peak hours, collaboration between the government and private enterprises is crucial. Introducing diverse transportation alternatives such as two-wheelers, cycling initiatives, and other creative means of commute through partnerships with private companies can provide more choices for commuters and align with their preferences and needs.

    While the current metro connectivity up to Durgam Cheruvu and Raidurg is a significant improvement, it still falls short in serving the dispersed IT offices in the western part of the city. The mini-bus services introduced by TSRTC are commendable, but they may not be enough to meet the increasing demand during peak hours. TSRTC should expand its bus fleet to bridge the gaps in accessibility and provide reliable transportation options for commuters from different areas in the western sector.

    The synergy between governmental initiatives and private enterprise partnerships is essential to diversify commuting options and create a more resilient and efficient transportation ecosystem. A proactive approach by TSRTC to expand its bus fleet and network of routes is necessary to accommodate the growing population and prevent future traffic congestion.
