23C extn is not new route. MTC earlier had 1 bus doing trips in this route. But I'm not sure if the same is continuing or withdrawn & being re-introduced now. I remember seeing a guy in this route but couldn't recollect any other detail.

City to get 150 new buses

Quote:
CHENNAI: The city will get 150 new buses soon. This is among the various announcements, including GPS systems and e-ticketing facilities for all buses, to be made by the transport minister in the state assembly on May 7.

Managing directors of all the seven transport corporations in the state met in the minister's cell on Wednesday to finalise the decisions.

In November last year, 176 buses were announced and 33 were added to the MTC fleet last month. "The rest will be added shortly," said a senior MTC official. The corporation now has 3,497 buses, about 10% of which are used as spare vehicles. Officials say the new buses will be used to increase the frequency of services or extend existing routes. "No new routes have been planned. The demand on existing routes will first be catered to," said the official. Experts say at least 1,000 more buses are need to cater to the demand. "MTC should look to have about 7,200 buses by 2017," says Shreya Gadepalli of the Institute of Transportation and Development Policy.

Transport corporations in the state are also looking forward to implementing GPRS-based e-tickets. E-tickets that look like existing ones will be connected to a server that will collect information such as number of tickets sold on a particular stretch, the frequency of services and the running time. The machines will help plug revenue leakages through sale of old unused tickets and prevent human errors while entering daily sales. They will also help plan bus frequency according to the data collected.

Apart from the GPRS-enabled e-ticketing machines, MTC is looking to enabling all its buses with GPS. Some 500 buses on 15 routes, including High Court-Vandalur Zoo (A18), HC-Tambaram (18A) and Broadway-Saidapet (18K), have GPS systems presently.

Transport minister will still keep reading comparative stats about ordinary, express vs deluxe in previous regime.

Having said that normal buses are getting converted to Express, there are also few Express services that have been converted to White board recently as i can notice in area i live (Nanganallur)

AC buses make hay while the sun shines

Quote:
On Friday afternoon, 60-year-old B. Venkata Krishnan hopped on to an MTC bus at Mylapore to visit his daughter in Pallavaram. At Mandaveli, he got off and ran into an air-conditioned bus that followed close behind. Mopping his brow, a relieved Krishnan took out tenors from his wallet as the conductor approached.

An increased patronage by commuters like Krishnan has increased the revenue generated by MTC's fleet of AC buses this summer.

Last month, the transport corporation earned Rs. 4.3 crore from ticket sales in its AC buses. This is a 29% jump from the earnings in March last year,
MTC officials said.

“During summer, commuters prefer to travel in AC buses even if there isn't any place to sit,” said a senior MTC official.

MTC operates about 100 AC buses, with each making 10 trips in the city every day. The fare ranges from Rs. 15 to Rs. 75.

“We have AC buses going to Kancheepuram and Mahabalipuram as well. A one-way journey to Kancheepuram will cost you Rs. 75,” the official said.

Revenue collection from these buses has increased over the months. In December, the total collection was Rs. 3.7 crore, a 12.5% increase over the earnings during the same month last year.

In January, the collection was nearly Rs. 3.8 crore, a 14.5% increase, and in February it was Rs 3.9 crore, a 27% jump from last year.

MTC officials said routes on East Coast Road and Old Mahabalipuram Road enjoyed most patronage. AC buses are a great way to beat the blazing sun, said office-goers.

“I prefer taking the AC bus to work every day. On days, when I miss it and end up travelling in an ordinary bus, I reach office drenched in sweat. MTC should increase the number and frequency of AC buses,” said S. Jayalakshmi, a resident of Guindy.

Officials say this is in the hands of the State Government. “An AC bus costs over Rs 80 lakh. We earn a revenue of around Rs 12,000 per day and during summer, it goes up. The rest of the year, there is a lull. But we continue to operate the buses as we do not want the vehicles to remain idle,” the official said.

The popularity of the buses comes with its own set of problems.

“When the bus gets overcrowded, the effect of the air-conditioning is drastically reduced. What is the point of charging a higher fare? Officials must find a way to address this problem,” said T. Ravikumar, president, All India Rail and Bus Passengers' Welfare Association.
