There are no proper toilets. The condition of the public toilet next to the entrance of the bus station is in a very bad condition.

Nitish (32), a daily commuter to ECIL from Rathifile Bus Station, said “The stink from the pay and use toilet service right at the entrance of the bus station is putrid.”

Shyamala, (64), who visited the city with heavy luggage, was waiting at the Bus station sitting on the floor.

She said the few broken benches were already occupied and she was too tired to stand waiting for the bus. “There are only four benches for hundreds of commuters. Though not everyone can sit, they should at least care for the old people.” She said.
