RSRTC staff to get tips on politeness

JAIPUR: A total of 1,584 drivers and conductors of the Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC) would undergo a training session, which would make them more passenger-friendly and careful while driving.

As some drivers of the RSRTC earned bad name because of rash-driving, the corporation has decided to train them in driving and give them a few tips on how to behave with passengers.

The new drivers and conductors are expected to join the RSRTC in September. They have cleared the written exams and the trade test.

Passengers and conductors often argue over trivial matters, which makes the journey unpleasant. RSRTC deputy general manager (administration) Satya Pal said, "Drivers who will join the RSRTC possess heavy vehicle driving licence. They all know driving, but we are planning to give them lessons on how to behave with passengers."

For more than a decade, there was no appointment of new drivers and conductors.

RSRTC public relations manager Sudhir Bhati said, "The rate of accidents of RSRTC buses is very less compared to other state buses. As these drivers are new, we have decided to train them to drive roadways buses. They have experience of driving heavy vehicles but driving roadways buses is a different thing."

As there are many conductors who are facing departmental inquiries for their alleged involvement in financial irregularities, new conductors would be given lessons on RSRTC norms.

Chopper taxi service awaits govt nod

Ajay Parmar, TNN Aug 5, 2011, 05.21am IST
JODHPUR: The state may soon have helicopter taxis provided the government gives its nod on a proposal to start chartered air services.

Affluent trusts have submitted a proposal for the air taxi service to the government through the Jodhpur divisional commissioner recently.

Once launched, the service will have a fleet of dedicated helicopters which can not only be availed by tourists for travel across the state but also by business magnates and corporate houses.

Initially, the proposal has been floated considering the religious areas of interest in the state and most of the trusts behind the proposal are basically the religious trusts. However, the service is likely to be extended to anyone willing to avail it as the state is grappling with an abject lack of qualitative and quick means of transport specially in view of long and exhausting distances.

Jodhpur divisional commissioner R K Jain said the state has been cut off in terms of air connectivity, particularly when it comes to chartered flights and has been a hurdle on prospects concerning both tourism and industry. "Though considerable improvement in surface transport has taken place in the past few years but hardly any initiation has been taken with regard to air connectivity. The growth rate of the state can be further expedited with faster mode of transport," he said highlighting that 18 prosperous religious trusts of the state have offered to fund a fleet of helicopters and run it on "no loss no profit" basis.

Suggesting a broad action plan for the proposal, Jain said, "I have proposed to the government that if the proposal is approved, these trusts are ready to run this service through a properly managed mechanism."

He said in western Rajasthan, Barmer and Jaislamer are emerging as energy hubs and global corporates are setting up their operations in oil and gas. Further, Jodhpur is becoming an educational hub with a full-fledged handicraft industry, apart from the emerging tourism industry in the state. "Considering these factors, there is an urgent necessity of strengthening the air infrastructure here. Even the industries also approved the idea that an immediate beginning can be made by introducing helicopter services, which practically has no gestation period and will propel the prospects of the state," Jain added.

Welcoming the idea, Govind Singh Rathore, a tourism entrepreneur, said there are many global tourists who skip some important destinations due to absence of proper air connectivity or due to absence of some quick means of transport keeping the long distances in mind. "This service will result in not only further exposure of the state as a tourist destination but also result in spurt in the flow of tourists," Singh asserted.

Roadways to start short parcel service soon

Quote:
The Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) has decided to start short parcel service in the state.
From now on, people can send parcels and small packets to their near and dear ones through state roadways buses. All the arrangement for this will be made by a city based private agency.

RSRTC Chief Managing Director Manjit Singh has asked to start the service in all buses that have luggage carrier installed inside. The drivers and conductors of the buses carrying these parcels will be given Rs 5 per challan. The step will prove beneficial for both people as well as roadways.

RSRTC returns 40 outstation buses

Quote:
Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC) has returned back 40 of the 75 buses from outstation depots. The buses had been brought in Jodhpur to manage the pressure on the RSRTC due to the Dussehra fair organised by Baba Ramdev.

The authorities have decided the withdrawal after a significant decrease in the number of commuters was noted two days into the fair. They said 150 special buses had been started from August 30 but the low number of visitors have forced the roadways to send back the buses that had been brought in from Pali, Sirohi, Nagaur, Falna, Abu road, Ajmer, Chittor and Udaipur depots.

RSRTC had earlier provided for an hourly-bus service but due to decrease in number of visitors, the service has been made top function once daily.

RSRTC to watch over passengers, staff

Quote:

To ensure completely safe travel on buses connecting with other states, particularly in the era of growing road mishaps and anti-national elements targeting transport modes, the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) is going for GPS-tracking system to keep a sustained eye on its 1500-odd buses.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) based tracking system is likely to be place in these buses connecting with 11 states and Chandigarh union territory (UT) by December this year. "Bids have been invited for the ambitious vehicle tracking project and the company which will perform the task will be finalized by this month end," RSRTC CMD Dr Manjit Singh informed.

The new system which is likely to be in place by this year end is targeted at reducing leakages in system, besides minimising accidents, through round-the-clock meticulous tracking of RSRTC buses connecting with other states. Also, the system is aimed at checking various irregularities in buses both at the point of drivers and conductors, thus ensuring punctuality of buses and revenue from ticket sales is not affected by errant drivers-conductors.

Similar tracking system is operating on buses in Bangalore, besides in the air-conditioned buses in Punjab and Delhi, but RSRTC has decided to go for more extensive tracking of its fleet, by putting under GPS-radar all its buses connecting with other states, including Uttarakhand, UP, Punjab, Harayana, Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and UT of Chandigarh.

The system, which will be operated through a Centralised Control Room in Jaipur, will not only help in tracking the buses physically, but also aid the Corporation in keeping a tab on number of passengers in its inter-state buses.

"Not only the buses will be tracked physically, but also the Electronic Ticketing machines with the conductors will be on GPS-tracking system," RSRTC official spokesperson Sudhir Bhati said. RSRTC officials hope once the new vehicle tracking system starts functioning it will also aid better fleet/vehicle utilisation of inter-state buses. A state roadways official said it's particularly going to help in meticulously spotting a vehicle in case of accident or any sabotage.

Quote:
वॉल्वो पर नजर नहीं आएंगे रणथंभौर और सरिस्का के टाइगर

जयपुर। राजस्थान राज्य पथ परिवहन निगम की वॉल्वो बसों पर पेंटिंग के रूप में छाप छोडऩे वाले रणथंभौर और सरिस्का के टाइगर नजर नहीं आएंगे। इनकी जगह निगम वॉल्वो बसों पर राजस्थान के प्रसिद्ध जयपुर का आमेर,जैसलमेर का सोनार और बीकानेर का जूनागढ़ किला सहित राजस्थान की कला और सांस्कृतिक की पेंटिंग नजर आएगी।

पहले और अब क्या होगा

वर्तमान में वॉल्वो बसों पर टाइगर, ऊंट, कटपुतली, हवामहल और गुजरात के प्रसिद्ध नृत्य गरबा की पेंटिंग दर्शायी गई है। रोडवेज ने इन्हें बदल कर आने वाली नई वॉल्वो पर राजस्थान के प्रसिद्ध किले, हवामहल, हाथी, ऊंट सहित कला सांस्कृतिक की डिजाइन तैयार की है।

ये जुड़ेंगे नए शहर
एक नवम्बर से जयपुर से मुंबई, द्वारिका, सोमनाथ और जम्मू में कटरा (वैष्णो देवी) के लिए वॉल्वो बसे शुरू की जा रही है। यहां यात्रा करने वालो को अब जयपुर से सीधी बसे मिलेगी। इससे पहले रोडवेज जयपुर से लखनऊ, इंदौर, दिल्ली, ग्वालियर, शिमला, हरिद्वार, जोधपुर, अहमदाबाद, सूरत के लिए वॉल्वो बसों का संचालन कर रहा है।

नवम्बर माह में जयपुर से चार नए शहरों को वॉल्वो से जोड़ा जा रहा है। इस संबंध में निविदा भी जारी कर दी गई है। आने वाली नई वॉल्वो पर नई डिजाइन की पेंटिंग की जाएगी। इसमें राजस्थान के प्रसिद्ध किलों सहित कला और सांस्कृतिक को दर्शाया जाएगा।

RSRTC plans to develop bus museum despite heavy losses

Quote:
Jaipur: Getting out of mounting losses could still be a pipe dream for the Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC). But, it doesn't restrain the Corporation from dreaming big.



Inspired by the world famous London Transport Museum, RSRTC chairman and managing director Manjit Singh has embarked on a mission preserving old buses in a museum and recreate models of these buses for public viewing. Singh happened to get the idea during his visit to the London Transport Museum, early this year.

As per sources, the RSRTC would collect old models of buses, since 1960s when the Corporation first commenced operations. In years to come the pictures and models would be showcased as a museum on lines of London Museum, provided the Corporation gets government approval and money to back its plan.

An RSRTC official informed that directions for preserving old buses and making models out of pictures of old buses were recently issued at the meeting of zonal heads of the Corporation.

Officials in Jaipur have already been tasked with collecting pictures of old buses, spanning from the first green-coloured express busses of the 1960s to red-coloured city buses. Other models which would be preserved would feature the first deluxe bus introduced in 1970s, the women's special bus and the chal vidyalaya bus service pressed into service in recent years.

Established in 1980, the London Transport Museum preserves and explains the transport heritage of London to the visitors. It operates at two sites, Covent Garden and Acton in London and preserves a wide array of heritage transport systems, including heritage buses, trams, trolleybuses and rail rolling stock.

When contacted, Singh said that work is underway to collect pictures and build models of old buses and conserving the original models of heritage buses. "We might be able to replicate London's world famous possession to some extent for the first time in India," he said. This effort would not only preserve our heritage buses, but would also educate school and college goers, besides becoming a draw for tourists," Singh hoped.

RSRTC's big plan fails to take off

Source:
http://daily.bhaskar.com/article/RAJ...f-2466567.html

Jaipur: In 2010, the Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC) had announced an ambitious plan to develop five city bus stations into snazzy mall-cum-bus terminals. A year later, the plan has not taken off and only meant building castles in air.

Already struggling to overcome mounting losses, the RSRTC has shelled out Rs 30-35 lakh to kick-start the dream project but the end result has been zero.

The RSRTC attempts to rope in big-ticket developers/ builders through big advertisements, road show in New Delhi and a meet in Jaipur. But it has failed to trigger even a single bid (Expression of Interest-EOI) from over 50 prominent builders who attended the hard-sell campaign.

While the builders are terming the project unviable, the RSRTC is still hopeful of making a start after addressing the concerns of builders through some alterations in the project. With work on a similar project starting eight months ago (though after months of delay) at a bus station in Kota district, where a prominent builder of New Delhi has been tasked with actualising the dream idea into reality. RSRTC Chairman and Managing Director Manjit Singh is hopeful of breaking the ice with builders within a week, by making changes which might suit their business interests.

"A few of their concerns blocked the start of this ambitious project in Jaipur. We're not discouraged, however and will try and sort out the matter by addressing their concerns, through some alterations in our plans in a week," Singh said.

Over 50 developers were present at the twin exercises but not even a single EOI was received by RSRTC by August 17, the last date of bidding. Sources at RSRTC informed that the project envisaged developing malls-cum-bus stations on 30,000 to 50,000 metre area on each of the five city bus stations: Vidyadhar Nagar, Sanganer, Sindhi Camp, Deluxe Depot-Jothwara Road and Transport Nagar.

Four new routes for Volvo bus service in offing


Quote:
Jaipur: Four new Volvo bus services are on the anvil. The Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) plans to connect Jaipur with Mumbai, Shirdi, Somnath and Katra with the premium Volvo bus service by November.

Also, the Corporation plans to restart the Jaipur-Indore-Jaipur Volvo bus service, away from road for the past one month, due to bad roads in Kota-Bundi and Jhalawar.
The RSRTC sources said that talks are in final stage with the state roadways of Gujarat, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh to start the four new Volvo service including the resumption of the Jaipur-Indore Volvo service.

"We're making all efforts to start the Volvo buses from Jaipur to Mumbai, Shirdi, Somnath and Katra by November," RSRTC spokesman Sudhir Bhati said on Thursday. While, the Jaipur-Mumbai service will connect the two cities in 19 hours, after a half-an-hour stoppage each at Udaipur and Ahmedabad, the Jaipur-Katra service will take 17 hours to connect the two destinations.

Presently, RSRTC Express buses from Ajmer and Udaipur connect Mumbai via Gujarat, while similar buses connect Jaipur with Katra. "With roads likely to be improved by November in Kota-Bundi-Jhalawar, the stalled Jaipur-Indore-Jaipur Volvo is also likely to be back on roads by next month," Bhati added.

The four new Volvo services are aimed at tapping the enormous potential of religious travel undertaken by the affluent class from Jaipur to Somnath-Dwarika, Katra (Vaishno Devi shrine) and Shirdi Sai Baba shrine.

Real Diwali for Roadways

Jaipur: The festive season has proved a real festival for the roadways. Rush in the buses started showing from Friday night itself. According to the sources the Sindhi Cam bus stand has earned more than 8 lakh rupees as profit in the past few days.
On the other hand Trains are also full with passengers and no tickets are available for the passengers. The Sindhi Camp bus stand is earning 35 lakh per day because of the festive season. However the earning of the bus stand on normal days is 25 to 26 lakh. Till now the roadways have not started any extra bus services but for Saturday and Sunday extra buses will be started.
Trains and buses are going over loaded because of Diwali holidays which will start from Saturday. According to the information trains are already full for the past one month. The waiting list have crossed hundreds. It is to be noted that from Saturday holidays in schools-colleges and government offices will begun and this will leave the bus and train booking with no room. Long distance trains are already full and tickets on these trains are not available. However the railways have started 10 extra trains for this occasion but keeping in mind the rush this is not enough.
Confirm tickets in trains like Jaipur-Mumbai, Jaipur, Chennai, Jodhpur–Howrah, Jaipur-Jammu, Marusagar Ajmer-Arnakulam, Jaipu-Maysore, Jaipur-Coimbatore, Ashmram Express, Jaipu-Ahmedabad, Ajmer-Sialdah, Garib Nawaz Express, Hanumangarh-Kota Special, Ala Hazrat Express, Aravali Express,Jaipur-Mumbai, Udaipur-Gwalior, Jaipur-Indore, Jaipur-Sariohilla, Jaipur-Jabalpur isbecoming difficult. Howver thae railways have temporarily increased coaches but this has not solved the problem.
The roadways have also started preparing for the festive occasion and have given orders to the bus stands to keep the arrangements of extra buses.

RSRTC to stop plying on 61 routes

Quote:
The Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC) has decided recently to call off its express bus service on 61 non-profitable routes. The decision is likely to affect 10,000 passengers. Most of the routes connected rural areas to small towns.

"This was done to reduce losses. The average passenger load on such routes is the minimal," an RSRTC official said. The date of ending operation is yet to be decided by the corporation.

Two routes from Jaipur were scrapped. Surprisingly, the service between Jaipur and Bhilwara, which comes on national highway 8, is suspended. Sources said the corporationrun buses charge a higher fare than private buses --diverting passengers to private players.

"Stopping buses on some routes will directly help private players, whose fares are less than corporation buses," said a source. On the other hand passengers on some routes will face drastic problems as corporation buses are the only players.

The zonal managers identified 61 routes which have low passenger loads causing losses to the corporation. Source said that corporation had taken many corrective measures before arriving at this decision .

The average earning from buses per kilometre is Rs 15. Routes which are recovering less than Rs 15 are known to be liabilities for the corporation.

The calling off of buses on routes goes against the state governments ' promise of connecting all gram panchayats from district headquarters. However, the corporation has no choice in order to reduce losses. "The rising maintenance cost added to increasing toll taxes in the state result in rise in fairs," said RSTRC official.

Jaipur-Mumbai AC Volvo bus service from today: RSRTC

Source: Daily Bhaskar
Quote:
A direct air-conditioned bus service will connect Jaipur with country's commercial capital Mumbai. The Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) will start operating premium volvo bus service from Jaipur to Mumbai from Tuesday.

The 41-45 seater bus will travel daily from Jaipur to Mumbai and Mumbai to Jaipur in 22 hours, via Bhilwara-Udaipur-Ahmedabad-Vapi-Virar.

The super luxury AC-volvo bus would leave Jaipur at 11 am and end its journey at Mumbai Central Bus Stand (opposite to Bombay Central) at 8.45 am the next day. On route to Mumbai, the bus would halt at Bhilwara, Chittorgarh Bypass stand, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Surat, Valsad, Vapi and Virar.

The same bus will daily make the return journey from Mumbai Central bus stand at 6.30 pm and reach Jaipur through the same route and identical halts at 4 pm the next day, RSRTC official spokesman Sudhir Bhatti informed.

The Jaipur-Mumbai volvo bus journey will cost Rs 1971 to each bus passenger. Presently, trains connecting Jaipur and Mumbai via Sawai Madhopur-Kota and Ajmer-Ahmedabad route take 17 to 20 hours.

The Jaipur-Mumbai volvo bus service is not a new bus service, but extension of the already existing Jaipur-Surat volvo service, added the spokesman.

"This would particularly benefit the passengers between the two cities who are unable to make the railway journey for want of confirmed rail reservation," the RSRTC spokesman added.

The new bus service will also render second volvo bus service for those wanting to travel between Jaipur and Ahmedabad. Already a volvo bus service leaves Jaipur daily at 9.30 pm for Ahmedabad. The volvo bus services from Jaipur presently connects the Pink City with Delhi, Agra, Lucknow, Shimla, Hardwar, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Dungerpur.

RSRTC buses to Agra giving a bumpy ride

Quote:
JAIPUR: It seems that the Rajasthan State Roadways Transport Corporation (RSRTC) is eyeing only the super-luxury category of buses. In a good tourist season when many tourists opt for the Golden Triangle covering Jaipur-Delhi-Agra, majority of the 2X2 deluxe (non-AC) buses are in a bad shape. The buses plying on the smooth Jaipur-Agra highway take 6-7 hours to cover a distance of about 220 km.

Though RSRTC has announced Mercedes and Volvo buses for new routes including Jaipur-Mumbai, but Jaipur-Agra and Jaipur-Delhi routes are facing "apathy" of the authorities. It becomes troublesome especially for those passengers who don't prefer air-conditioned and super-luxury buses.

More buses for RSRTC fleet soon

More buses for RSRTC fleet soon

Quote:
JAIPUR: The Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) will soon add new air-conditioned (AC) and non air-conditioned buses in its fleet. An order of 500 blue line buses and 40 AC buses have been issued by the corporation. Along with it the RSRTC will also introduce 20 mini-buses in the Walled City area by next week.


"Following the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model we ordered 500 buses and till now we have received 100 of them. The plan is to get them on road by March 31," said Manjeet Singh, chairman and managing director of RSRTC.


The corporation will also buy 1,000 new buses for which the state government will give financial aid. These buses will be added by June 2012 and is a part of the announcement made during the last budget. "Our long term goal is to connect every district with the panchayat head quarterx. With the new buses we will be able to ply more buses on the routes connecting villages," added Singh.


To connect Jaipur with long distance cities like Ahmedabad, Lucknow etc. 15 more semi-sleeper Volvo will be introduced by the corporation. "Volvo buses will also be based on PPP as it is very costly to buy them. The private players will run the buses and we will regulate them," said Singh.


The 20 mini-buses for the Walled City will replace the big buses which the traffic police had declared unsuitable for plying in the congested areas. Starting from next week, though delayed by two months, these buses will operate on two-three major routes covering most parts of the Walled City.


To alleviate the parking problem of low-floor buses the Jaipur City Transport Service Limited (JCTSL) managed to get land on Sikar Road and Mansarovar. "The space will be enough to park the buses and no bus will be parked on the roads," added Singh.

रोडवेज बसों में अगले महीने से लगेगा जीपीएस


Quote:
जयपुर त्न रोडवेज बसों में जीपीएस (ग्लोबल पोजिशनिंग सिस्टम) अगले महीने शुरू हो जाएगा। पहले चरण में 1000 बसों में यह सिस्टम शुरू होगा। रोडवेज में फिलहाल इसकी ट्रायल की जा रही है। जीपीएस के साथ बसों में डीजल चोरी रोकने के लिए सेंसर भी लगाए जाएंगे। रोडवेज के सीएमडी डॉ. मंजीत सिंह ने सोमवार को पत्रकारों को बताया कि इस सिस्टम से रोडवेज कंट्रोल को बस की स्थिति का पता चलता रहेगा। पहले चरण में इसे लंबी दूरी की बसों में लगाया जा रहा है। अगले चरण में बसों में कैमरे लगाने की योजना है। ताकि बस में यात्रियों की संख्या का पता चल सकेगा और परिचालक की ओर से बिना टिकट यात्रा कराने की प्रवृत्ति पर अंकुश लग सकेगा। उन्होंने कहा कि रोडवेज को वर्ष 2011-12 में 95.92 करोड़ रुपए का घाटा हुआ है। इसके बावजूद रोडवेज ने वर्ष 2010-11 के मुकाबले 97.06 करोड़ रुपए का राजस्व अधिक अर्जित किया है। रोडवेज के अब भी 157 पैसा प्रति किलोमीटर का नुकसान हो रहा है।

छह सालों में 3 हजार नई बसें : रोडवेज सीएमडी ने कहा कि वर्ष 2017-18 तक प्रतिवर्ष 500 नई बसें रोडवेज के बेडे में शामिल होंगी। इस प्रकार छह सालों में 3 हजार नई बसें लाने की योजना है।
