MTC to get over 450 new buses today

Chennai: Of the 3,000 new buses that were announced for the seven transport corporation across the state in the budget last week, the Metropolitan Transport Corporation will get 464 new buses. Chief minister J Jayalalithaa will formally launch the buses on Saturday. “Buses will start operating soon after,” an MTC official said.

Since the average age of buses in the corporation is 3.5 years, there will be no replacements. “All of them will be added to the running fleet,” said the official. With the new addition, MTC’s fleet will increase from 3,421 to 3,885. Last year, 176 buses were allotted for the corporation but they haven’t made it to the fleet yet.

“Body building works are going on for these buses which are expected to be added to the fleet in a couple of months,” said the official. When these buses are added, the fleet size will cross 4,000, meeting the Wilbur Smith recommendation for 2014.

Drawing flak from passengers for increasing fares and running excessive deluxe buses, MTC has played it safe this time by augmenting only ordinary buses. After the hike, the number of commuters dropped from 56 lakh to 50 lakh per day. TNN

Have they reduced for 7H alone or for 7M also? Earlier they both had 2 Volvo services. Thanks

Misinformation from TOI... I guess

as per the report, MTC was supposed to get 464 buses, but today the total 464 buses were for all transport corporations put together...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Saturday inducted 464 buses of State Transport Corporations (STCs), including 389 new vehicles and 75 refurbished ones.

As many as 250 of the new buses will be operated on new routes.

At a simple ceremony organised at the depot of the State Transport Corporation here, she handed over the keys of the new buses to 16 drivers and advised them to discharge their duties carefully, keeping in mind the safety of passengers and road users.

According to an official release, the STCs in Tamil Nadu operate 20,861 buses to various parts of the country and 2.1 crore passengers use them every day. In Chennai metropolitan area alone, 55 lakh passengers commute by these vehicles.

To improve the services and provide passengers better vehicles, the Chief Minister had ordered the purchase of 3,000 new buses at a cost of Rs.539.83 crore. They would replace the buses which were six years old and those that had clocked seven lakh kilometres.

Besides, the government decided to refurbish those vehicles whose chassis and engine were in good condition but not the superstructure. Accordingly, 1,432 vehicles were selected in the first phase and the Chief Minister ordered their refurbishment at a cost of Rs.97.58 crore.

A special feature of the new buses procured for the Tamil Nadu Express Transport Corporation is that they have emergency exits.

Those who took part in the function included Transport Minister V. Senthil Balaji, Chief Secretary Debendranath Sarangi, and Transport Secretary T. Prabhakararao.

Last time when in DMK period they did not do this much. For Example When ever they introduced a new route the route number is in the name of either source or destination place.

70W-West Mugappair to Velacherry
H70-Hasthinapuram to Pattabiram
170P-Pattabiram to Tambaram
70P-Pattabiram to CMBT
27T-T.Nagar to Ambattur OT Oragadam
27E-Elango Nagar to Anna Square
147S-Senthil Nagar to T.Nagar
147T-T.Nagar-Padiyanallur

and so on....

But now in JJ period the new bus routein J series (29J,J70,20J) and all too much...

J for "Jalra" for these officers? The alphabets attached to route numbers is neither relevant to the new destination these buses are going to connect nor follow some order. Till the time TNS(E)TC, MTC are within government control, nothing good is going to happen. They should be individual govt. entity similar to KaSRTC to bring back lost glory.

Good one.
Yes, I agree. KSRTC [Not BMTC] leaves a lot to be learned by other Transcos.
