Whats the reason for less patronage!?!?
1. unhygenic
Look at the pathetic condtion of coaches.. u cant hold the bars for which it is mostly contaminated, dirty, dusty, spit stains.
2. Less Frequency
The trains are less frequent with 8 mins @ peak hours to 15 mins @ non-peak hours.
3. Less no. of ticket counters
You can always see a big queue in the ticket counter with juzz 2 counters for more than 100 persons at a given time at peakhours!
Noone will have patience to wait in a queue of 50 ppl ?!?
4. Narrow foot-over bridges
The scene at the foot-over bridge is pathetic!! esp. when two trains arrive at the same time in a station! Dirty, beggers occupyin the already narrow footpath!
5.Difficulty in switching
Its very difficult to switch between communter rails and MTC with poor subway with 50% path occupied by small vendors selling fruits and varieties!
The foot-over bridges is too high for normal ppl to take everyday! Especially for older ones!
Adding to this is the crowd tat uses the pathway n stuff!

Why not SR look into resolving these issues than sayin ppl r not favoring suburban and less patronage on sundays! They juzz want to cut the no. of services blamin it on patronage?!?!

Per GVenke's latest post in "Chennai in 10 Years" thread (post #57), the volume of passengers to be carried by rail transport in Chennai by 2026 will be nearly 11 times the present volume as against the number of trips carried by bus transport in 2004 which would be only 2.8 times (please refer page 110 from the link below).

As per the above data presented in the article, rail transport has enormous potential. How do they claim that railways has less patronage?

Tiruvallur-Arakonam BG work will be completed by March

Minister inaugurates computerised railway reservation centre at Avadi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Work will soon be started for laying the fourth line between Tiruvallur and Arakkonam

Tender will be floated for railway station in Nemilicherry this month-end
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHENNAI: Steps will be taken to complete the road overbridges in Thiruninravur and Pattabiram and laying of third broad-gauge line between Tiruvallur and Arakkonam by March, according to Union Minister of State for Railways R.Velu.

Inaugurating the new building for computerised passenger reservation system at the Avadi railway station recently, he said all the long pending projects in Avadi would soon be completed. Work would soon be started for laying the fourth line between Tiruvallur and Arakkonam.

Tender is to be floated for the long pending demand of a railway station in Nemilicherry this month-end.

Works worth Rs. 1.25 crore

About Rs.1.25 crore worth works are under way at Avadi railway station, including an additional railway platform and a new building.

An additional funding of Rs.1.8 crore has been sanctioned for improving the infrastructure at the station.

Encroachments

The vacant railway lands would be cleared of overgrown bushes and the encroachments would be removed to facilitate parking space for two-wheelers and cars in the Avadi station, Mr.Velu said.

Six counters

On the reservation centre, he said it was built at a cost of Rs.45 lakh and has six counters to facilitate commuters to reserve tickets at Avadi instead of travelling to the city.

He also highlighted the various ongoing projects across the State, including gauge conversion between Tiruvarur and Nagur and Virudhunagar and Manamadurai.

New train services

Later, in an interaction with presspersons Mr. Velu said there was a possibility of introduction of trains between Tiruchendur and Chennai. Some of the 13 trains sanctioned for Southern Railway are being delayed by shortage of coaches.

Railway patrolling in Avadi station would be increased to prevent offence and measures would be taken to evict the encroachers along the railway level-crossing.

Sriperumbudur Member of Parliament A.Krishnaswamy demanded that all express trains halt at the Avadi railway station.

Pointing out that it was used by hundreds of commuters, he said a subway or underpass must be provided to avoid accidents.

Moreover, the vacant lands must be utilised for construction of waiting rooms for passengers.

He complained that several projects were progressing at a slow pace, including construction of two ROBs.

Avadi Municipality Chairman Victory Mohan said that seven railway stations come under the jurisdiction of the municipality.

But, they lacked basic infrastructure. He demanded that Avadi railway station be modernised.

Safety of newly-laid BG line inspected

Quote:
CHENNAI: Commissioner of Railway Safety T. J. S. Naidu on Wednesday conducted safety inspection of the newly laid third broad gauge line between Korukkupet and Ennore on the Chennai Beach-Gudur BG section.

The 12-km line is part of the Rs.99-crore Korukkupet-Athipet third line project (18 km), sanctioned by the Railway Ministry sometime ago..

Accompanied by Chief Administrative Officer (Construction) R. Ramanthan, Mr. Naidu checked various safety parameters, including electrification and points at railway crossings.

Later, he conducted high-speed trials using a special train formation on the new line.

An official e said the work on the remaining six km from Ennore to Athipet would be completed by next year, including construction of a line across the Ennore Creek.

The Ministry also sanctioned construction of a third line between Chennai Beach and Korukkupet. Once this is completed, there will be three BG lines from Beach to Athipet.

To have dedicated suburban lines for up and down trains from Beach to Athipet, the Ministry had sanctioned the fourth line, work for which would commence soon, the official added.

There is hardly any space between Beach and Korukkupet to build a third or fourth line. I wonder how they're planning for the above lines.

Today, I saw some construction-like activity going on in CMBT (at the two-wheeler parking lot near the entrance). Anybody knows what it is? Guess they are concretising the muddy and slushy two-wheeler parking ground.

Now, MTC drivers get trained to save fuel

Chennai: Having introduced more new buses, the Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) is now focussing its resources on fuel efficiency by training its drivers on how to reduce diesel consumption.
While over 1,100 drivers, whose vehicles were found to be consuming more diesel than usual, were sent for training on fuel efficiency last year, the corporation has now intensified its move.
According to official sources, at least three drivers from each of the 25 depots, who are poor on fuel efficiency, are being sent for training every week to MTC’s training institute in Chromepet. Driving instructors at all depots have been asked to be strict on evaluating drivers’ performance in relation to their vehicles’ diesel consumption. The corporation has about 3,500 buses and its diesel consumption per day is about 2.5 lakh litre.
“We have managed to improve our fuel efficiency from 3.5 km per litre last year to 4.3 kmpl now. We hope, by training our drivers further, we can soon touch 4.5 kmpl,’’ said an MTC branch manager. MTC has given ‘diesel consumption card’ to all drivers. The daily diesel consumption is to be recorded on this card and evaluated on a dayto-day basis. The corporation also has a tie-up with Ashok Leyland to train its drivers periodically.
Officials said the objective of training was not only to promote fuel efficiency but also impart better driving skills to drivers to ensure road safety and low vehicular emission.
However, several drivers complained that the management was ‘unreasonably’ strict on fuel consumption without considering the route and time in which the bus operates. “We are made to complete all the stipulated trips daily even if it takes three hours longer than scheduled. Many times, we operate buses even after midnight just to complete the number of trips though there were no passengers to travel and, this leads to loss of fuel,’’ said a driver in Anna Nagar.
IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
Fuel efficiency improved from 3.5 km per litre last year to 4.3 km per litre
Diesel consumption card given to all drivers
Daily diesel consumption to be recorded on cards and evaluated

MTC records Rs 2 crore ticket sales on Feb 1

CHENNAI: Introduction of new buses and routes by the Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) seems to have had the desired effect. For the
first time in its history, the transport corporation?earned through ticket collection more than Rs two crore in a single day, on February 1. On that day, MTC buses had ferried more than 50.50 lakh passengers.?It was celebration time at the MTC headquarters in Chennai on Monday - the management, thanking its drivers and conductors for their efforts, as well as passengers for their increasing patronage, arranged for distribution of sweets at all the depots.

For MTC, 2008 was a good year. Daily passenger numbers increased by more than five lakh, even as the transport corporation increased its number of daily trips by 1,800. Today, MTC operates about 40,000 trips every day in Chennai and its suburbs.

After the State Government extended MTC's operational jurisdiction to a 50-km radius from Parrys' Corner, the corporation now runs about 3,000 buses over a total distance of 8.30 lakh km a day, up from 6.17 lakh km a year ago.

"Our increase in frequency of services has led to more realiability on our operations and that has played a major role in attracting passengers. While our average daily ticket sale is about Rs 1.82 crore, we are resorting to more passenger-friendly measures to be sustain growth,'' MTC general manager M Babu told The Times of India.

Several MTC branch managers said that they had managed to get more motorists to switch over to buses, particularly after the introduction of 1,650 new buses in January 2008. "We have received feedback from our crew members that many car-users travel by our air-conditioned buses. Revenue through daily, weekly and monthly passes has also increased to Rs 4.5 crore a month, from Rs 3.5 crore over the past year. We believe that we can get more private vehicle users to opt for our services this year as our fleet strength is likely to be increased from 3,350 to 4,000 by the end of this year. We now have about 35 lakh regular passengers,'' said a senior official.

Pointing out that the transport department was trying to procure 2,000 buses for MTC through the central government's Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Development Scheme, officials said passengers could see new routes being added after March.

MTC buses kill one person every three days

CHENNAI: Despite efforts of the Metropolitan Transport Corporation (MTC) to prevent rash and negligent driving by its drivers, accidents
involving MTC buses are on the rise.

Official records of the state transport department reveal that at least one person gets killed in every three days due to accidents involving MTC buses. As many as 40 persons lost their lives in the last three months in accidents involving MTC buses. While 2008 saw 145 fatal accidents involving the buses, records show that the number has been on the rise gradually in the last five years. As of now, MTC spends an average of Rs 13 crore every year towards compensation to accident victims.

Last year, around 2,000 drivers faced inquiry at the MTC headquarters for rash driving, overspeeding and failure to stop at the designated bus stops. Moreover, 4,200 MTC drivers were penalised by the city police for signal violations in 2008.

MTC officials said they were trying hard to minimise accidents and ensure safety of passengers and road users. " In view of the increasing vehicle population and traffic factors affecting road safety in the recent years, we try our best to avoid accidents. It accounts for only 15 % of the overall accidents in the city and the suburbs. Fatal accidents attributed to our buses also include deaths of passengers who fall while travelling on the footboard. The driver is not at fault in many of these cases. While there are many reasons for accidents apart from the driver's fault, we are taking several measures to ensure that our drivers adhere to safe driving practices. Maintenance of buses is also high on our agenda,'' said a senior MTC official.

Stating that all the drivers involved in fatal accidents were suspended at least for one month, the official said that some of them who caused a fatal accident a second time were removed from service. "As of now, we summon 5 to 10 drivers and conductors a day for inquiry on charges of rash driving, overspeeding, failure to stop the buses at bus stops and misbehaviing with passengers. At the same time, we are taking various steps to motivate them and address their grievances. We have already started one-on-one counselling for drivers and conductors.''

However, many drivers accuse the management of forcing' them to drive long hours without considering the difficulties they face on the roads, especially during peak hours.

"In the worsening traffic condition, we are often unable to complete trips on time. Forcing us to complete all the stipulated trips, even if it is after midnight, leads to accidents many a time. We appeal to the management to revise the running time chart of all the services and ensure eight-hour duty for drivers,'' said a driver at the T Nagar depot.

Increase in number of public transport users in Chennai

CHENNAI: Call it recession effect; or the result of concerted effort by transport authorities; or plain awareness about the sensibility in public transport. There has been an increase in the number of public transport users in Chennai, accompanied by a decrease in the number of private vehicles registered per month in the past three months.

The metropolitan transport corporation (MTC), which runs public buses in Chennai, increased its fleet from 2700 to 3000 between April and December 2008. Its latest passenger numbers indicate a steady rise from 46.4 lakh in September 2008 to 47.16 lakh in October, 47.7 lakh in November and 49.8 lakh in December.

"This shows a dramatic rise from our previous years average of 35-37 lakh users per month," said an MTC spokesperson. "We have touched 50 lakh in January, though the figures have not been recorded officially yet." The corporation has been on a modernization spree this year, going in for low floor buses whenever there is an augmentation to its fleet, and including 30 air-conditioned Volvo buses.

MTC also maintains its fares at the lowest among metros, supporting its revenues through other means like advertising on its buses and terminals. "Display ads on the bodies of our buses fetch us the maximum revenue; but we also have sponsorship contracts for our handlebars and tickets," the MTC spokesperson said. The company's ad revenue was hovering around Rs.50 lakh in the past two years. But, for the year 2008-09, it already touched Rs.1.52 crore.

However, MTC is not optimistic about this year, as its 3-year advertising deals are up for renewal coming June, and their advertisers will mostly be looking at cutting spending on mass ads. That may not be a reason for worry for passengers, though, as its increased passenger base has boosted its operational revenues from Rs.153 lakh per day in November to Rs.171 lakh per day in January.

"This trend is not seasonal, as usually there may be a decrease in city transport owing to school and college vacations by year end, but not an increase," said Southern Railways spokesperson Neenu Ittyerah. SR runs two city transport systems – the suburban railway and the mass rapid transit system (MRTS).

Without any addition of services, the passenger count for the suburban railway has increased by 8.67% last quarter over the same period the previous year. In the same quarter, the extension of the MRTS from the coastline to the business locality of Velachery has doubled its passenger count to 58.85 lakh over 27.66 lakh in the same period the previous year.

"A recent survey by Pallavan transport consultancy services (PTCS) has shown a 3.7% overall increase in the users of public transport in the city for 2008," said TN transport secretary Debendranath Sarangi. The last piece of the picture falls in place as the number of private vehicles registered in Chennai has also been falling steadily in the last quarter to an average of 13,675 vehicles per month 19,155 for the first half of 2008.

"The global meltdown may played a part in this; but there has also been a policy based effort put in by the state government," Mr. Sarangi said.

There was a unified metropolitan transport authority (UMTA) formed in 2007 to co-ordinate planning and implementation between the different transport providers in the city and state. "MTC, southern railways, national highway authority of India, public works department and the Chennai metro rail corporation have representation in this body, which will soon be vested with legislative power to regulate transportation planning," Mr.Sarangi said.

Most of the MTC drivers think that the entire road is for them and never follow the regulations. Parking the bus in the middle of the road, blocking the vehicles coming behind, not stopping at the regulated stop, not respecting the road users, especially two wheelers, not following the road signs and signals and the list goes on and on.

There should be severe punishments to the drivers who do not follow the rules - their unions should be kept offline and all measures have to be taken in order to ensure the safety of the road users.

Chennai buses not disabled-friendly

The ordeal disabled passengers face everyday in Chennai was shocking enough. Now consider this. Out of Chennai`s government-run fleet of 3262 buses, hardly a handful are disabled-friendly. That`s for about a lakh disabled people in the city.

This too was only after this young man with cerebral palsy took the Tamil Nadu government to Court in 2005.

Rajul Padmanabhan, director, Vidya Sagar, says: "Only 2 or 3 buses are accessible. Accessibility is for everyone, not just for the disabled. It`s for pregnant mothers, old people, everyone."

Since that court battle, the government has rolled out 1034 new buses. It claims some of them have low floors and are suitable for the disabled. But what happens when drivers don`t halt properly at bus stops? Or when route numbers are just not displayed at stops?

Social activist Meenakshi Balasubramanian says: "There is also no audible info for the visually challenged. No proper signages."

The state's Transport Secretary Debendranath Sarangi says: ``The state government is very concerned about the comfort of disabled passengers. We will make necessary changes."

The managing directors of various transport corporations of Tamil Nadu are now in Delhi to seek Central funds for more buses. These special residents have just one prayer: "Remember us when you roll out your next fleet of new buses."
