    The area of city itself is about 150 Sq.kms. Madurai is just a bigger village for southern villages. Across Madurai spans about 10 to 12 kms. Commuting people may travel to a maximum of 7 or 8 kms. The Chennai MRTS didn’t meet out its operational expenses for about a decade. Bus stand to Bus stand plying buses too do not make its operational expenses in Madurai. In the name of development, the govt is wasting people’s hard earned money collected in the name of taxes.
