அரசு பஸ்சை தனியார் பஸ்சுக்கு இணையாக பராமரிக்கும் டிரைவர், கண்டக்டருக்கு பப்ளிக் வரவேற்பு….
அரசு பஸ் என்றால் பரமரிப்பு இன்றி நட்டு போல்ட் கழன்று, சுத்தம் இல்லாமல், சீட் கிழிந்து தொங்கும் மழை காலத்தில் குடை பிடித்தால் தான் பயணம் செய்ய முடியும்.
இந்த நிலை இல்லாமல் தேவகோட்டையில் இயங்கும் அரசு பஸ் எல்.இ.டி.,டி.வி.,அலங்கரவிளக்கு என, தனியார் பஸ்ஸிக்கு இணையாக இயக்கப்படுகிறது.
அதற்கு காரணம் அந்த பஸ்ஸில் பணியாற்றும் டிரைவர் மற்றும் கண்டக்டர் தான் அவர்களுக்கு பாராட்டு குவிந்த வண்ணமுள்ளது.

Travel Review BANGALORE - NELLAI
Operator: State Express Transport Corporation (SETC)
Tag Name: "Nellai Brindhavan" - Premium Service
Depot : TNV-A
Reg No : TN01 AN 1060
Seat# : 5W
Sch/Act departure: 6:30pm (E-city)/ 6:57pm (E-city)
Sch/Act Arrival : 5:30AM / 6:00AM
Ticket fare: Rs.582 (including online booking charges)
SETC "Nellai Brindavan" was in my long time wishlist so utilized it during my native visit last month. Booked ticket through tnstc.in on a day before my journey date. Selected E-city BMTC depot as boarding point as it was shown in online but I was pretty sure that this guy is a Flyover service.
On the date of journey, reached E-city BMTC depot by 6PM and saw SETC Nagercoil "Brindavan Express" was passing E-city in BETL flyover. Enquired with the timekeeper in e-city, he was quite busy for sometimes and requested me that I am the only pax booked from E-city so bus has taken flyover so please board the bus from E-city toll gate. He also gave crew contact number. As it was known to me so prepared my mind before itself. There was slight rain drizzling, i took a walk and reached E-city toll by 6.30PM.
Nagercoil Brindavan is 5.30PM departure from Shanthi Nagar and it crossed E-city by 6PM so expected "Nellai Brindavan" 6.00pm departure in Shanthi nag to reach in similar time but he turned up @ 6.57PM. As said, I was the only person to board from E-city. After boarding driver politely said that this bus is flyover service and online is showing boarding point wrongly, next time while booking asked me to come to toll directly. Occuplied my seat and conductor completed his ticket checking. This bus has good pickup but locked in 75kmph as per crews info. Traffic in hosur road was comparitively less and was able to reach Hosur BS @ 7.30PM, while we enter Nagerkovil Brindavan exited. Conductor tried his max to fill with TNV & Tirumangalam tickets but no luck so he loaded Salem pax. Started from Hosur BS around 8PM.
Below are the timelines -
8.40PM - 9PM - Dinner break in Hotel Nandini before Krishnagiri
9.20PM - Krishnagiri - Salem bypass (Driver continued on wheel)
CI checking near Omalur toll i guess.
Salem BS - 11.20PM (wasted around 20min to fill seats and come out of bus stand, driver change happened after reaching bypass)
Tirumangalam between 3-3.15am, short tea break and driver resumed journey.
3.30am - CI checking after a toll, wasted 10min
Nellai new bus stand @ 6am.
Total journey hours end to end is 12hrs from Shanthi nagar including breaks and stoppings.
Bus has good pickup and both the crews maintained steady 75kmph throughout the journey which is their max as per bus capacity.
Considering the time lapse, arrival @ 6am in TNV was superb and good show by crews.
Saw some regular pax commenting that it normally reaches between 5-5.30 but late due to Salem entering and speed limit.
This bus tagged as Premium Service with running hrs mentioned as 3.45hrs non-stop from Bangalore - Salem which is not a possible thing coz of speed lock and bangalore traffic.
Expecting atleast Tagged & premium services can be given exception from this speed restrictions. It can be given atleast 80-85kmph.
Crews were not happy with this speed restrictions as they are not able to maintain timings mentioned. Even people questions as it is mentioned in windshield which they couldn't answer.
CI checking happening in between disturbs Conductor cum drivers sleep, this will lead to tiredness to him as even he should drive for 4hrs.
Overall a good show by the crews, if this speed restrictions continues then we may loose the charm of this service. Officers should think about it and take decision ASAP.
Thanks for reading my review.
