SETC is running so many Bangalore - Trivandrum services & SETC is a Tamil Nadu State Govt. Undertaking corporation. Do they share the revenue earnings with KeSRTC for operating these services. Instead KeSRTC should be running these buses.

SETC buses operate between Bangalore and Thiruvananthapuram via Salem-Madurai-Nagercoil. The bus runs just 33kms in Kerala compared to 685kms in TN and 35kms in Karnataka. SETC has a depot in Trivandrum!

KeSRTC operates a Trivandrum-Bangalore bus via Alappuzha-Ernakulam-Palakkad-Salem-Hosur.

There is no revenue sharing between SETC and KeSRTC for the TVM-BNG services.

We can also add TNSTC-VPM which has an interstate depot in Pondy. TNSTC-Kumbakonam also has one depot at Karaikal right?

During 80s and 90s TN STUs planned it well. They used to build depot's based on their operations. TNSTCs also have depots in the territory of other TNSTC Divisions.

Another Depot Added in BMTC

Caught this Supply Vehicle of BMTC, this is attached to the all new Depot No. 39 . The website of BMTC is still not updated on this new Depot. Understand this is located at Hoskote & the best part its not a Eicher Depot. Have noticed a lot of Leyland buses on route no. 317 & 317A of this latest Depot. This Depot belongs to the North Divsion of BMTC.




Another View.

India Infoline News Service, Dec 29, 2011

All of these actions take place just three months after Volvo Buses announced its ambition to be a USD 1 billion company in the coming years.



Volvo launched a new range of buses, comprising city bus and coaches. The new products will not only raise the standards in the segment where Volvo Buses has a presence, but is now all ready to bring in a new coach aimed at the second tier of routes & cities in India. Present at the launch were Hakan Karlsson, President, Volvo Bus Corporation and Akash Passey, Managing Director & CEO, Volvo Buses in South Asia.

The expanded range of Volvo Buses in India now includes three new models that are the first-of- its kind in the country and takes the company’s bus range to 10 different products. All of these actions take place just three months after Volvo Buses announced its ambition to be a US$1bn company in the coming years.

Volvo has also taken unilateral step of raising safety standards by introducing enhanced Front Under-run Protection (FUP) & Frontal Impact Protection (FIP) systems across all its coaches.

Hakan Karlsson, President, Volvo Bus Corporation, said, “About three months ago we promised that we will play a bigger role in the progress of the Indian bus industry and announced an investment of Rs. 400 crore. Today, we stand here with a product range that will take us there. Most importantly, our focus remains to drive quality of life and with our current range we will be spreading the Volvo experience to a larger market in the country. We have defined a clear role for India in the future – as one of the largest markets in the group, a global hub for selected models, local product development and that utilises the synergies we hold as a group in India. Today, we can proudly say we have set our foundation.”

Akash Passey, Managing Director & CEO, Volvo Buses in South Asia, said, “Today, in one single step we are bringing in products equal to that what we did in the last decade. We now have the local competence & experience to raise the momentum of change manifold. This is just as we expand our market access and raise standards & expectations. We are on our way to reaching our vision of a 1 billion dollar company with 5,000 buses produced each year. Importantly, with every new product we are touching areas of national and human value – improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, attractive public transport, safer & comfortable travel. We are ensuring that, with Volvo, our customers are No.1 in their own business, while more & more passengers in the country experience bus travel – the way the world moves.”

India’s First Multi-axle coach at 14.5m and with steered axle

Luxury Coaches have a new Standard with the Volvo 9400PX
Just when one would wonder what more can be achieved in luxury, travel comfort, safety & transport economy in coaches, here is the answer – the Volvo 9400PX. It is longer, more spacious, more high-performing and comes with a host of new features to make travel even more comfortable. At 14.5m the Volvo 9400PX is the longest intercity coach yet in India. Step inside the coach and discover the finest of interiors with the most luxurious environment.

The Volvo 9400PX is built on the new light-weight Volvo PX platform, which provides even better grade ability and acceleration as well as enhanced stability & larger luggage space. The new coach also packs a performance like never before with the new Volvo 11-litre engine with 370hp. A key feature is the steerable tag-axle for better road handling and manoeuvrability.

Another key feature of the Volvo 9400PX is the Volvo I-Shift gearbox. This automatic gear changing system provides high drive & ride comfort, better fuel economy and offers high braking power of 400 to 600 kW.

The Volvo 9400PX spacious interiors offer a range of opportunities for customers to incorporate a range of passenger conveniences from pantry, toilets, VOD and a range of other features – for smooth long-distance travel.

The bus offer an all-new dimension of comfort in road travel from the most well-built bus as you glide on for miles. It is a coach in its own class and an inspiration to travel, like never before.

Volvo 9400PX has the unique distinction of being a global introduction, starting from India. The first product of its type in the Volvo Product range too.

India’s First Multi-axle City bus, with steered axle

How to offer 55% more occupancy and reduce emissions, fuel and space up to 30%?
Volvo 7400XL is India’s first multi-axle bus with a steered axle. At 14.5m, it is India’s first city bus ready to support efficient mass bus-based transport systems to move more people, with fewer buses, quicker & with less resource utilisation. Volvo 7400XL will take the Volvo City Bus Concept to a new level.

If the Volvo 7400 helped move people away from their personal vehicles and save fuel, emissions, road space – the Volvo 7400XL will do this with even greater intensity. The reason is straightforward; the Volvo 7400XL can carry almost 55% more people and as a result improve upon fuel, emissions and road space consumption by as much as 30%. Imagine what this can do for growing cities, high occupancy routes and for de-congestion? The savings are profound.

Most importantly, this new City Bus from Volvo comes after 10-years of deep understanding of high-performing bus applications in India. Manoeuvrability in the city is gracefully tackled by the steered tag-axle allowing the bus to take on tight roads and turns of a city.

A Global Product. Built for Asia. From Asia.

Volvo enters the second tier of routes in India with the Volvo 9100 Coach

The Volvo 9100 coach is a Global introduction for Asia, from Asia. This new coach is an integral part of Volvo Buses’ ambition to drive quality of transport across the country to more & more cities and routes. The Volvo 9100 embodies the Volvo values for safety, quality and care for environment.

The engine is optimized for a range of driving conditions and is backed by Volvo’s rich experience of 10 years in high performing bus applications on Indian roads. The new Volvo coach is designed to meet medium haulage applications and has been designed to take the Volvo experience to millions of new passengers.

For the bus operators the Volvo 9100 presents an unbeatable business proposition in transport economy – offering excellent value in fuel efficiency, maintainability and overall operating costs. The Volvo 9100 highlights the organization’s local product development competencies.

The Volvo 9100 is a global introduction, developed in Asia, starting from India. It takes Volvo buses into new market segments in the country, thereby expanding the market potential significantly.

The world’s first commercially viable hybrid – Volvo 7700 Hybrid. On display at the Auto Expo 2012


The Volvo 7700 Hybrid is a commercially-produced hybrid bus model. It has been on the market for some years already and both fuel savings and reliability have been proven in commercial operation. The Volvo hybrid technology is probably the most versatile driveline solution there is when it comes to combining environmental improvement with performance, economy and uptime.

Now...India’s widest range of High-Performing Buses.

The Volvo bus range in India now will include:

Volvo 9400PX Multi-axle at 14.5m, PX platform & 11-litre engine
Volvo 9400XL Multi-axle at 13.7m with 9 litre engine

Volvo 7400XL City Bus
Volvo 7400 City Bus
Volvo 7400CNG City Bus
Volvo 7400Semi-Low Floor City Bus
Volvo 8400 Commuter City Bus

Added to these are of course variants of these products.

Enhanced Front Under-run Protection & Frontal Impact protection across all coaches
Volvo Buses has led the way by introducing the first-of-its-kind safety features by any bus manufacturer. As part of its stated value of safety, Volvo has introduced the Front Impact Protection (FIP) and Front Under-run Protection (FUP) systems. Set to exceed global standards and tested by ARAI in India, even as the country regulations have not set any demands on this front.

The FIP is a frontal collision protection system, which effectively spreads the force of an impact into the frontal structure. Full-scale tests show that FIP considerably cuts the risk of serious personal injury.

The FUP system significantly minimises the risk of injury in the event of a frontal collisions between buses and cars. It consists of a steel structure behind the bumper that prevents the oncoming passenger car from becoming wedged under the bus while at the same time offering excellent protection for those components that are fitted at the lower front part of the coach.

Both, these enhancements apply to every Volvo Coach
