Residents of Tat Borgaon, a small village in Beed district, face daily challenges due to the absence of public transportation services. With a population of 1,500, the villagers must walk 3 km to the nearest bus stop, as Maharashtra State Roads Transport Corporation (MSRTC) services do not reach their village.

The village Zilla Parishad school only offers education up to Class 4, compelling children to travel to nearby villages for higher education. Dr. Pandurang Shitole, a college lecturer and native of Tat Borgaon, pointed out the lack of a motorable road as a significant issue. However, under the directive of Sarpanch Vitthal Shitole, road construction is currently in progress.

Despite promises from local politicians over the years, the issues of road infrastructure and transportation remain unresolved. Pharmacy student Shubhangi Kaldate described the 3 km walk to catch a bus for her college in Latur as arduous. An MSRTC spokesperson stated that the corporation operates buses only up to Aapegaon, just a few kilometers from the village, due to non-motorable roads. The MSRTC plans to survey the road before deciding on extending services to Tat Borgaon.
