The Corporation since its inception has been operating in competition with the Private Operators. We are unable to meet the entire demands of public transport, but we are presently operating around 75000 kms. per day. The Liberalisation Policy, the amendment in the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 and the increasing input costs in terms of material and labour have had a direct impact on the cost of operation. The Corporation has still endured to provide the best means of transport to the people of Goa thereby assisting in the economic growth of the State.
