This letter is written to raise awareness about the transport issue that the students face daily. The transport for buses and rickshaws should be subsidized for students who cannot afford private vans. The transport fares that once go high, in the name of increasing fuel prices never come down even after the fuel prices are reduced in the country. Not all the students can have access to the points or those students whose class timings do not match with the point timings have to pay double the amount in local transport, and it adds greater to the misery of those who have to change two buses to get to their destination. If the government provides subsidy in the transport fares of the local transport, that is, the buses and the rickshaws, for students in possession of a valid ID card, it would be very beneficial.
