APSRTC launches central call centre

Quote:
For the first time in the country, an all-India Central Call Centre has been inaugurated in Hyderabad on Wednesday by Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) to render round-the-clock services to bus passengers from anywhere in the country. Customers can call the CCC on 3377 3377 from across the country without dialling Andhra Pradesh’s code, that is, 040. The CCC will attend to passengers’ grievances via calls, mails, SMSes and also issue bus tickets through Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS). Complaints on cases like accidents, breakdowns and buses not turning up on time at bus stations will be taken. 200 local call centres in bus stations across state have been set up in the past after which RTC sold 50,000 tickets more daily. The CCC would also help curb the private bus transport system, he said. RTC vice-chairman and managing director B Prasada Rao who inaugurated the call centre said, “A team of officials will get feedback from passengers daily and bring changes according to their demands.” He added that RTC operates 22,000 buses and carries 1.5 crore passengers everyday and it is its responsibility to ensure comfortable travel to all of them. APSRTC has been working with Abhibus Technology company to develop the CCCs.

APSRTC to enter cargo biz, to buy new vehicles

Quote:
July 31: APSRTC plans to venture into the cargo business. It wants to do this by procuring 1,000 new vehicles. RTC officials are discussing tie-ups with Singareni Collieries, Krishnapatnam port and other government departments like civil supplies to shift cargo like coal and other goods. The coal will be transported through special trucks and the other goods through the new buses.

The corporation had earlier planned to modify its 6,000 old buses and use them for cargo. Now it appears that the buses no longer have the capacity to pull the weight of the cargo. Therefore, the corporation has decided to procure new ones in phases and replace the old buses. About 1,000 vehicles were proposed to be procured for the cargo venture. A consultant who studied the pros and cons submitted a proposal which was presented to the state transport minister, Mr Botsa Satyanarayana, recently.

Also, the corporation is planning to hold discussions with the various port trusts and government departments, like Civil Supplies, to rope them in for transporting goods under the public distribution system or to transfer goods from Krishnapatnam port. This would give the corporation steady revenue throughout the year. Companies like Ashok Leyland would be supplying the cargo vehicles needed for heavy goods transport, while special buses will be bought for the transport of light goods like vegetables, rice etc. RTC officials state that the work on the cargo business venture is going full steam ahead as it would provide a stable income to the corporation. An autonomous body would administer the freight activities. “The project is in a formative stage but it is being worked on seriously,” said an RTA official.

Why buses? If the purpose it to transport freight, wouldn't it make more sense to get trucks and actual cargo vehicles?

APSRTC plans to increase occupancy ratio by TIMs

Quote:
HYDERABAD: The Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation is planning to increase occupancy ratio in its bus services by five percent by providing Ticket Issuing Machines to all conductors.
After inauguration of TIMs at the Dilsukhnagar bus station on Saturday, S Nagaraju, APSRTC executive director (Operation and Maintenance) said they have spent Rs. 11 crore for setting up TIMs, to help conductors issue tickets quickly. He added the ticket machines will help conductors to issue around 100 tickets in just 15-20 minutes. "The conductors are being trained to work on increasing occupancy ratio by speaking softly to passengers as the machines will allow them issue tickets without hassles. If we increase the occupancy ratio by just five percent, we can not only increase our annual revenue by about Rs. 400 crore but also recover the expenditure on TIMs," Nagaraju said.
Nalgonda, Shadnagar and Sangareddy bus stations are already using TIMs. So far, about 3,000 TIMs have been issued and another 11,000 machines have been ordered. "TIMs have been launched on a pilot basis in Nalgonda and initially conductors in long-distance buses were provided these machines. Now we will provide the ticket machines to ordinary buses as well. If things go as planned, TIMs will be issued to all conductors across the state by end of this year," Nagaraju said. He added they are looking to curb private travels by attracting more passengers through advertisements and seasonal offers on ticket reservations.
The ticket machines can details like number of tickets issued and seat occupancy once they are connected to the computer. The machines will lessen manual work of conductors like punching tickets and help them to issue group tickets in one slip instead of separate tickets. Further, conductors need not write statistical return to verify the number of tickets issued and cash collected as all details can be displayed on the TIM screen with touch of a button.

A master plan for Intelligent Transport System

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Greater Hyderabad will have a master plan for Intelligent Transport System (ITS) soon. The study will cover the Outer Ring Road (ORR) with the main focus on the Inner Ring Road (IRR) and integration of traffic departments.

The ITS is meant to support optimisation of traffic flow, reduce environmental impact on the transportation sector, reduce road accidents and promote efficiency in traffic and transportation operation and management.

The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), Andhra Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC), traffic police and other departments will be stakeholders in the preparation of ITS master plan.

The study proposes area-wise focus, called City ITS, covering� ordinary roads and road network in the metropolitan area and includes related systems. The project got under way last month and is being undertaken by Nippon Koei of Japan. The project is being implemented with assistance from Japanese International Cooperation Agency� (JICA).

The study of ITS master plan will be undertaken in two phases and completed in 18 months— by January 2013. The first phase of study�� include plan formulation up to January 2012 and preparation of pilot project basic design from January 2012 to July 2012. It will be followed by tenders.

Speaking to Express, HMDA authorities said the unified policy for ITS is required under the condition where severe congestions on ordinary roads inside ORR, particularly inside the existing IRR. “The concepts for ITS preparation in the study include preparation of basic environment to enable quantitative measurement for real traffic conditions by utilising such as probe system utilising GPS, sensors, etc.’’

Preparation or upgradation of related systems such as area traffic control system with information provision by Variable Message Signs (VMS), Internet and other associated systems like bus locations systems and� electronic road pricing system will be undertaken in future. “Many international cities have ITS traffic management centres because they helped in maximising the utilisation of road network by adopting appropriate traffic management system as high-volume traffic cannot be smooth without appropriate traffic guidance. Emergency response should be carried out with the cooperation of agencies like GHMC, traffic police and ambulance services.

RTC strike expected to turn worse

Quote:
The fourth day of the indefinite strike by APSRTC was marred by violence as six of its buses were damaged by the agitators, and in Koti, about 15 private buses, including Setwin services and school buses, were damaged for ferrying commuters.

The strike is likely to get worse as RTC T-JAC has urged the depot managers and regional managers of various RTC depots in the region to participate in the strike. The officials tied black ribbons on their arms while at work. They are expected to join the strike by Friday.

However, the APSRTC executive director, Mr A. Purushottam Naik, said that the officials would not be joining the strike. With regard to IT commuters, he said that special services are being run on IT corridor like Kondapur- Miyapur for IT employees.

APSRTC has already accumulated a loss of Rs 28 crore because of the strike. In a repeat of Wednesday’s incident, agitators drove away all the 10 applicants in the morning on Thursday, who had appeared for the driver and conductor recruitment test.

Despite 378 buses plying in the region, JBS and MGBS bus stations looked largely deserted with little activity.

To add to the woes of the passengers, autorickshaws in the Telangana region will also be joining the T-strike from Thursday midnight. They would hold dharnas and rasta rokos on September 24, and a massive rally of auto drivers will be organised in the city.

“The RTC is already on strike, if autorickshaws go on strike too, what would we do? We won’t be able to go to work,” said a furious Mr Sampath Kumar, a private employee.
