One request, Can you post the pic of Kanyakumari BS? Yet to see that bus stand with TNSTC name. It was owned by TNSTC right.

SV sir,
Saw one TML from Madurai region with 1.2.3 stickers running as Madurai-NGL highway rider and stoppage only at Nellai. Can you check it out?

Private/In-House built buses, AL looks great and TML is not so good. IMO, TML city buses built by TNSTC-CBE is really really good.

In the new lot I have seen MDU, SLM and Kum using TMLs for their long distance buses. CBE used it perfectly. TMLs with low powered HP engines provide good mileage in short distance.

Whether Nellai divn has any long distance TMLs?
My dear Dhandapani Krishnasamy i will post Kanyakumari Bus Stand photo short time. Its name is Kavimony Desiga Vinayagam pillai bus stand. Owned by TNSTC.In Thamizhnadu TNSTC bus stands were placed only at Ooty and Kanyakumari.

Sahadevan sir / Reno i saw a bus TN-74 N 1606; on last sunday it was running between Nagercoil - Trichy TSS service. But snickered as nagercoil-madurai is a Hitech model bus. i think it was built by ranithottam depot. Can u please collect that?

and i took Tri sea express from Kanyakumari to chennai on last sunday it took just 12 hrs to reach chennai CMBT from Nagercoil. Awesome speed and driving

Now days i am seeing some improvement on kanyakumari SETC depot....

The south bound depots of SETC are always good performing.
The rest of the depots, especially Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchi and Pondy spoil SETCs name.
The financial crunch is also another problem.

Madurai is also kind of ok and it is the biggest SETC depot we have. Main spoilers are Chennai, Tanjore, Kumbakonam, Pondy, Nagai, Salem, Coimbatore, Trichy. You can read in the same line. Some of worst UDs from Tanjore and Kum were transferred to Tuty, NGL etc.., They should scrapped them instead of transferring those to South TN guys and spoiling the name. My vote for best depot in SETC will be Sencottah, Tuty, NGL, Kanyakumari, TVM and to some extent Nellai and MTM will come. Space is a big problem for Nellai depot.

If KeSRTC gets teh PALAKAKD- CHENNAI permit, then it can operate PLKD-CHENNNAI and also Ernakulam-Chennai, as TVM-Chennai will not draw passengers in this route as this is circuitous and will take almost 20hrs as NH47 from TVM to PLKD is in very bad shape

So if it gets then we can expect a PLKD-CHENNAI servcie but still, KeSRTC doesnt have luxury buses.. The topmost bus is 2 Volvos and a spare which is dedicated to TVM-BLR service, but trip cancels due to repair every other day, Next is AL , 12M , Non Ac, similar to SETC UD, but there are only a few and that too to BLR from different parts of kerala, Next comes Express buses, 3X2, similar to te one operating Changanacherry-Velankannni.

So there is no use for KSRTC in getting this prmit unless they do it with some premium and luxury buses to cover this 550 kms.

Nanbare, waiting to see the pics. BS in Valparai also owned by TNSTC-CBE and somewhere i read in a tender document that TNSTC-CBE owns Marudhamalai BS. Need to check that out.

Bangalore-Pollachi in ABT X Travels

Before moving to the review, let me share some details about the new buses which was spotted in Shanthi Nagar.

Due to BMTC strike, i have started from hotel a bit early. Took an auto to reach Shanthi Nagar and a hefty amount was charged. Still the meter was switched on and when i got down it showed Rs.60 and the amount which i paid was thrice.

Went there mainly to see the new UDs of SETC and the how the crowd is reacting for the KSRTC strike. First time saw that Shanthi Nagar is less crowded and that too on friday evening. Few KSRTC buses came in with temporary staffs. Around 10 new 12M UDs of SETC's Coimbatore, Madurai, Trichy, Nagai, Tanjore, Pondy and Chennai depots were waiting for their departure. Crews in few of the above buses were shouting for passengers. In most of the routes, only 36 seats were configured for booking, but the bus actually has 43 seats. Even in some routes which were started with these new 12M buses has got them configured as 40 seats in online reservation.

New 12M buses were now waiting with boards to Mailaduthurai, Trichy, Chennai(Via Chitoor and also Vellore), Coimbatore, Madurai, Bodi, Trichy, Pondy, Tirunallar etc..,

Again took an Auto to reach ABT's Madiwala office. Reached there by 9.20 PM. When i enquired, people in the ABT office said, the bus to Pollachi will reach Madiwala by 9.45 PM. Got the boarding pass and waited in the road for few mins and the bus reached Madiwala by 9.50 PM. KA53 4507 turned out and interiors were kept so clean. Two drivers were on board. Boarding started immediately and around 5 passengers were there when it reached Madiwala. Finally we started by 10.05 PM and the bus was almost full. We took the electronic city elevated toll road. Went to sleep after crossing Electronic city. The bus went via Tirupur, Udumalpet. Bus was 65% empty when we started from Udumalpet. Looks like these three places contributing equally. Finally got down in my native which is in Udumalpet-Pollachi highway by 6.05 AM.

Yet again a comfortable journey with ABT. This was their Non-Semi Sleeper bus. ABT, Its time for replacement. Eventhough the maintenance is good, they should replace their buses at regular intervals to retain their regular customers.

The fare was Rs.641 and after diesel hike it is increased to Rs.660

Finally got it, the green UD of SETC. The surprise is, it replaced 2 month old Nanjil which was 43 seater maroon colour 12m UD. It seems, Nanjil getting every latest bus of SETC.

All these buses look like DCTC (TNSTC-KUM Trichy region ) design.
Better CEC itself could have built it.

Nice click.

Thank you so much for the click. Eagerly waiting to see this greenie guy. Really a surprise to see it in Nanjil brand. Please put up the pics of buses which were serving the Nanjil brand. May be you can add the last 4/5 buses which were serving this. Try to include all the pairs. I'll also put them up in TNSTC blog.
