Congestion outside the Goa airport and tourist taxi woes at Dabolim is now sorted out with the operation of luxury Volvo A/C shuttle bus service from Airport to Calangute via Panjim and vice versa.
Today, the service was flagged off at the hands of Vasco, MLA and Chairman, KTCL, Mr. Carlos Almeida and Goa Airport Director, Mr. B.C.H. Negi along with other officials.
This initiative was worked out for the convenience of tourists wishing to travel to North Goa.
The public transport facility will be available to and fro from the airport at Dabolim to Calangute via Panjim and vice versa.
A total of over 21 passengers availed this facility today. The charges for the trip include Rs. 100 from Airport to Panjim and Rs. 150/ from Airport to Calangute and vice versa.
Goa Tourism Development Corporation will assist in the bookings and also put additional counters for more paid taxis and the same will be finalized in a week. KTCL looks forward to introduce two trips per day on regular basis.
This was initiated especially to ease long queues in front of taxi counters at the airport.
Let’s hope the taxi mafia don’t ruin this for the tourist too.
