    CTB was something needed very much.

    Private buses did not have any discipline. they were becoming organized crime.

    CTB should controlled at least 49% by the employees the balance by govt or public shares. Otherwise CTB will go bankrupt because everybody start stealing. Even when the decentralised transport boards were operating conductors were stealing money.

    To stop conductors stealing, buses should have some kind of mechanical device which curtail conductors handling money directly.
