The Odisha State Road Transport Corporation (OSRTC) was established in 1974 with its headquarters in Bhubaneswar. With a vision to roll out high-quality yet affordable services for the average traveller, the OSRTC aims to secure a comfortable bus journey for all its passengers. It has also consistently won awards for operating seamless services while maintaining low operating costs.

A major goal of the organisation is to connect remote areas in Odisha—which has a large tribal population and much hilly or forested land—to major cities and metros. Another socially oriented goal of the OSRTC has been to deliver concessional fares to freedom fighters, students, handicapped persons, and rural journalists who wish to use their services.

Bus Services by OSRTC

OSRTC buses connect different parts of Odisha. Intercity services are also available to destinations in West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh. The organisation offers both government-operated routes as well as the option to book chartered buses. This operator currently has a fleet with over 460 buses, which are spread across 23 depots—well-known ones being Cuttack, Rourkela, Rayagada, and Jeypore. Out of these, 87 are used for travel through tribal, hilly and Naxal-infested areas in the coastal state.

Since Odisha is home to iconic pilgrimage sites like the Puri Jagannath Temple, the Konark Sun Temple, and the Lingaraja Temple, the OSRTC also offers bus services connecting nearby cities to these locations.

Additional services under the OSRTC include:
  • Providing transport during emergencies.
  • Dispersing passenger amenities at bus stands
  • Aiding police and paramilitary transport during times of crisis
  • Provide services in troubled regions under the Biju Gaon Gadi Yojana.
