Please look at the second picture, this SETC is fitted with speed limit of 80. Worst option chosen by setc officials. Private operators and KaSRTC will continue to dominate setc. People once again will be moved to chose private operators. Setcs fame will be diminished soon. People are flying in scania and volvos in 130 kmp speed. Setc is going backward. No one can change setcs fate. Bad luck for setc.

My Travel Review
11th Aug 2017- Chennai to Trichy
Along with my cousins, I travelled to Trichy on 11th Aug 17. Initially thought of boarding a TNSTC without booking, But due to long weekends I felt that it is safe to book. Only very few(3X2 seaters were available on the site for online booking. Booked in 22.10 - Kumbakonam division bus. On that day bus was very late and started only @ 23.45 from Koyambedu, I was surprised to see many MTC buses were deployed in trichy chennai route. (These buses were very fast and overtook all TNSTC's. I missed those buses) The bus was very slow from the start. In maduravoyal to Perungalathur byepass almost 25 buses overtook us very easily. We reached perungalthur and started to move from there by 01.10AM. All buses overtook us mercilessly and to the agony one TEN TYRE Taurus lorry overtook us. Finally reached Vikravandi by 5.10AM. Four hour drive from perungalthur. At this speed he should reach Trihcy by 9.30 or 10am. So checked for seats in a Madurai bus-(3X2 seater) which was waiting there. Conductor was happy to see people boarding in Vikravandi Motel. Luckily seats were available. We took madurai bus which started at 5.15am from there. The driving was good and we could cross Sengurichi toll after waiting for 20mts. He overtook many TNSTC, SETC's. But all TRAVELS buses overtook us in a Flash. We were dropped at Mannarpuram at 8.25AM. Roughly 3hrs journey. The Madurai bus was new one but drivers are doing between 60-75kms speed only. The roads were really good and TNSTC' should go atleast up to 80kms speed.

No pros only Cons with kumbakonam division bus.
a. Extremely slow driving
b. the bus was parked somewhere and we need to continuously check and finally board
Madurai bus
a. Good speed but could easily go above 80kph

Will post return Journey details soon

My Travel Review
13th Aug 2017-Return Journey- Trichy to chennai- TN-01 AN-1338

Came to Trichy bustand around 1.30PM. 123 AC bus was about to depart. The seats were available in last row, we hesitated a bit but the conductor cum driver pulled us inside the bus. It was a new bus AC was really chill. Started @ 1.45Pm from trichy bus stand, and from the Beginning the first driver started driving fast. Once reaching byepass the bus was driven at good speeds. Over took Raj travels, and many TNSTC SETC's. The top speed shown was 86kph as per "thunder speed app installed in my mobile. Not sure whether it showed the correct Speed. Reached villupuram by 4.15Pm, but 6 passengers had to be dropped at villupuram bus stand so went inside villupuram and joined bypass back by 4.40Pm. 25 minutes lost in the process. Stopped at Ajantha Motel @ vikravandi for 20minutes. I expected driver change there. But same driver continued till chennai. He should be around 35 so he was interested in driving it seems. The senior driver cum conductor allowed him to drive fully. While chatting with senior driver, he told me that the bus can go up to 90kph but they normally driver between 70-85kms speed. With this they can reach trichy from chennai in 5hrs 30mts. In weekends it seems atleast 30 regular commuters are there for this bus from trichy. We reached perungalthur by 7.25 and dropped at koyambedu @ 8.05Pm. Overall very good drive and happy to see a new good AC bus in SETC. Saw one 422 AC bus Salem chennai with 7hrs travel time in Vikravandi Motel, It left 10minutes before we started. We were never able to catch that bus till koyambedu
Pros: a. Steady speed maintained throughout the Journey
b. No hard brakes or zig zag drives
c. AC was really good and driver was friendly with passengers
Cons:
a. Entry in to villupuram delayed the arrival @ chennai by 30mts
b.Stopping at worst Motel.
c. Seems 43 seater bus, Seats were crampy.

Travel review from Madurai to Chennai by SETC AC

Yet another travel between Madurai and Chennai. Last Sunday, tried the SETC 8 PM Malligai premium service. Posted the review of the wonderful journey.

This time, booked in 8.30 PM SETC AC bus. Since it was a normal weekend (actual weekend is on 15th Aug), there was only less crowd in the bus stand but the 8 PM Malligai and this AC bus were booked.

I reached Madurai bus stand at 7.45 PM, the 8 PM bus was ready to go and it started at 8 PM. My bus was already parked in the bay and boarding happened at 8.10 PM.

All the seats were filled and we got moving by 8.45 PM. Initially the driver was lugging the engine and I thought it would be yet another 'Govt' bus journey but it was not the case again

Once we hit the highway, the driver showed the full power of the bus. Unfortunately the bus is locked at 70 km/hr . But the acceleration is superb and the bus reached 70 in no time.

Both the drivers utilized the full power of the bus and kept maintaining 70 km/hr at all times. We overtook lots of TNSTCs, few SETc, very few private buses enroute.

Since it was a normal weekend, there were only few private guys around and there was no F1 race driven. All buses (Govt and Private) stuck to sedate driving. I felt ours was the only bus driven aggressively.

We took 2 breaks of total 30 minutes, and one driver change break for 5 mins. There were no big traffic jams enroute and tolls were less crowded.

After a good drive, we reached Tambaram at 4 AM. 7 hours and 15 mins from Madurai to Tambaram is good timing. But I felt the speed needs to be increased to atleast 80 km/hr


Coming to the bus,
the exterior and interior were maintained well.
Knee room was a bit of squeezer.
No placeholder for keeping water bottles/snacks.
reading lights were working.
They provided blankets on demand.
