On the first day of resuming operations in late May 2020, the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) ferried close to 11,151 passengers, claim sources. They mention that the state transport undertaking operated 2007 buses by strictly adhering to the guidelines laid down by the government. Resuming operations after a gap of two months, the organisation made it a point to not operate buses in the red zone however. Operating buses for emergency and essential services staff only during the first three phases of the lockdown, the MSRTC, inform sources, ferried over three lakh migrants between the districts and state borders during the first week of May 2020. The state transport undertaking has a fleet of 18000 buses.
