Venkatesh agreed. But KSRTC on the whole is much better.

I agree with you. I see many from Karnataka preferring KSRTC even when they have choice of a private operator. Case is different in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. But for the past couple of years things have improved with APSRTC.

Last Sunday, 6th May, I traveled from Hyderabad to Vijayawada in APSRTC's Garuda Plus - Mercedes Benz Tri Axle. I was talking to the driver, he is working with APSRTC for the past 20 years. He is telling me that since the corporation expenses are more (in terms of number employees, other support services), the depot managers generally advice the mechanics to just make sure the vehicle is able to run. They postpone or avoid any kind of small repairs to save on costs. That's why over time the vehicles go out of shape. He was justifying saying that RTCs are for service and then business. The case reverse in private sector.

APSRTC Super Luxury - Marcopolo Built Non AC Semi Sleeper Bus
















What do you feel about look of the bus? I liked the looks. But there is too much of ventilation inside the bus. The glasses have to be filmed to cut glare, only then passengers will have decent sleep.

If only they could have quality resteraunts along highways it would be really good. I've noticed a lot of KSRTC buses stop only at veg places. Not sure why.

BMTC to test the ‘longest’ bus

Don’t be surprised if you spot extraordinarily long buses plying on the city roads soon. Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) has decided to launch the Volvo ‘long chassis’ bus, which would be able to accommodate up to 150 passengers by the month-end.
Transport Minister R Ashoka said the BMTC will be the first transport corporation in the country to launch such a bus for city commuting. This bus would be able to carry almost the double number of passengers as compared to ordinary buses, thus saving road space as well as fuel.
“The bus will have a length of 14.5 metres and will come with 65 seats while the equal number of passengers can be accommodated as standing commuters. This will be considerably longer compared to the current buses which are 12 metres long and have 50 seats,” said BMTC managing director K R Sreenivas. He said the bus would also have a special provision for specially abled people to board.
The BMTC is at present studying the routes in which this bus can be operated as city roads are notorious for narrow lanes and sharp turns. The bus is likely to be launched on the Outer Ring Road from Hebbal to Banashankari section, which is also considered as techie corridor.
BMTC officials said Volvo company will provide the buses for the trial for the initial few months when the corporation has to spend money only on fuel. Only if the commuter response is favourable, the BMTC will consider buying the buses, they said.

They are coming up with their own restaurants the KSRTC guys (karnataka)....BTW they stop at decent restaurants like Kamath,Pai mostly udupi style restaurants who serve veg food only.

Stopping at Veg restaurants sets a good image(hygiene) among the travelers majority of them would prefer veg food during travel.
