Benz city service buses to be introduced on 20 routes shortly

BENZ BUSES ROLL ON CITY ROADS
image hosted on flickr

Mysore, Jan. 7 (KK&SRB)- Mercedez Benz buses which had been reserved for the State's capital have now come to Mysore. The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has gifted the luxury buses to commuters of the city for the New Year.

Two Benz buses are plying on selected routes of Mysore city for the past four days. The buses presently run on the routes between Chamundi Hill & Infosys.

The luxury bus, commanding a price tag of Rs. 75 lakh, has been introduced on the above route keeping in mind tourists and the techies, on a trial basis. Although the bus is high on its price, the tariff for the journey is not so. In particular, those who spend three-digit sums for travelling by autorickshaws, will find the bus journey a new experience.

The seating in the newly introduced buses is also wider compared to all other buses including Volvo which are familiar to commuters. The Benz bus has a capacity to carry 38 passengers and is air-conditioned.

A digital tele screen is also part of the luxury features of the bus. There is also provision to provide WiFi internet facility in the bus, which is powered by a 250 HP engine. It moves almost noiselessly and has low floor feature. It is proposed to expand the Benz service to 20 routes shortly.

Pre-paid autorickshaw stand likely to be shifted soon

Quote:
Staff Correspondent
Mysore: The pre-paid autorickshaw stand in front of the modernised mofussil bus terminal here is likely to be shifted to the back of the terminal.

The move is aimed at decongesting traffic on the busy road and facilitating parking of four-wheelers in the basement of the terminal.

Meeting held

KSRTC Divisional Controller G. Prakash said, “Police Commissioner Sunil Agarwal and I had a meeting with autorickshaw owners and drivers and they have, in principle, agreed to relocate.”

He told The Hindu that a meeting had been convened with Mysore City Corporation Commissioner K.S. Raykar on Monday to discuss the issue of clearing roadside hawkers on the road behind the terminal.

Moreover, the corporation has to formally notify the area for operating the autorickshaw stand, he stated.

Assurance


“Once these issues are sorted out, a pre-paid counter will be constructed and the stand will be made functional,” Mr. Prakash said.

He, however, said there was no restriction on four-wheeler parking in the basement. “I have heard that it is difficult for four-wheelers to drive into the basement as autorickshaws are parked in front of the terminal. We shall soon come up with a solution,” he said, adding that parking for two-wheelers and four-wheelers was free until further arrangements were made.

Basement

The basement of the bus terminal was opened for parking nearly 50 days after the grand reopening of the terminal, which was modernised at a cost of Rs. 23.53 crore under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.

Swanky Benz may be new year gift

How about travelling to Chamundi Hills in a Meredes Benz? Obviously, most, especially who are quick in grabbing the opportunity to drive in luxury wouldn’t dare to miss the chance.

But, here the swanky wheels we are speaking about is not a car, but a bus, KSRTC, Mysore urban division has introduced to enable public transport users, travel in air-conditioned coach. Said KSRTC, Mysore Urban, Divisional Controller, M N Srinivas: “Currently, two buses of Benz make are being operated on an experimental basis from City Bus Stand to Chamundi Hills and Infosys (one bus on each route), from the past one week. The fare is similar to Volvo buses plying on both the routes- ` 17 for Chamundi HIlls and ` 20 for Infosys”. Features wise, it is 38 seater, having machine operated doors, electronic board inside that informs the passengers about the stops. Cost wise, the vehicle is priced above ` 90 lakh.

Encouraging

If not overwhelming, the response is quite encouraging with already about 300people opting for Benz rather than other types of buses, to the hills alone. In the case of Infosys, it may have reached about 400 during the period. The buses are being run in 10 trips on both the routes, only during general shift that starts from 9.30 am stretching up to 7.30 pm. Srinivas exuded confidence that Benz would be added to the existing fleet of buses in the coming days, if taken into account the success stories of the past. If it happens, Mysore city would be second after Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) to introduce the hi-tech facility on city routes.What made the Mysore division to go for Benz is the increasing number of tourists besides growing industries, especially Information Technology. It’s evident with the routes of a popular tourist spot like Chamundi HIlls and Infosys, that has been drawing young engineers from different places, selected even for experiment too. The successful run of Volvo buses is also another reason. According to Srinivas, when Volvo buses entered city in 2007, only five were rolling on the roads.Now, after three years, 33 such buses are being operated. Among them, eight are offering regular services to Chamundi Hills and 12 for Infosys.This apart, 150 buses have been added under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) programme, followed by 79-semi low floor, 41-Tata Marcopolo and 25 normal buses.So what are you waiting up to? If you wanna feel the experience, better board the bus becoming one more reason for the transport corporation authorities to run the facility on permanent lines for new year.

Grin and bear: Officials have failed to address parking woes
Where to park at bus stand?
Quote:
Eswar Singh K R Mysore, Jan 8, DHNS

Dare not to take car to drop your friends to KSRTC Sub-Urban Bus Stand in the city. The reason-the KSRTC authorities have utterly failed to provide parking place for four wheelers inside the bus stand premises.

Adding to the woes, the traffic police have put up a no parking board on a piece of land- just opposite to the bus stand- where people were earlier parking their cars.

Rajendra, an employee of a private firm, went to drop his friend and parked his car in front of the bus stand on Friday. By the time he came back, the cops had put the wheel lock for parking the four wheeler in prohibited area. He had no option except paying a fine amount of ` 300 and got the vehicle released.

Such incidents are common of late, ever since the traffic cops have banned parking in front of the bus stand. They say that it is the sole responsibility of the KSRTC authorities to provide parking space for the cars.

The duty of the police department to ensure a free flow of traffic near the bus stand on Bangalore-Nilgiri Road.

Suffering

People who have to wait to pick their dear ones or want to park their four wheelers to help their family members, aged parents with luggage to board the buses are the worst hit. The situation makes it worst for the car owners and drivers to slog for a space in peak hours.

“The city police have a rude and irrational planning to declare no parking areas,” he adds.

Similar are the woes of scores of people visiting the bus stand on daily basis. Many are forced to park their vehicles few hundred metres away and walk to the stand with heavy luggages.

Though, the KSRTC has come up with a swanky bus stand and parking space at the cellar, four wheelers are not being allowed inside the parking area. The KSRTC has tendered the parking space, but yet to handover the position to the contractor officially.

To avoid inconvenience to the daily commuters, the basement is open for parking vehicles free of charges. The basement is so much crowded with two wheelers recently that there is no space for the parking of four wheelers. It should be recalled that the KSRTC officials had declared that the parking space could accommodate about 500 four wheelers and more than 1500 two wheelers.

However, if the number of two wheelers parked inside parking area is taken into account, there is hardly any space left for cars. In another set of woes for the two wheelers, the auto’s standing in queue at pre-paid auto stand block the pathway leading to the entry of basement of the KSRTC building.

“The commuters are facing daily problem for entry and exit from the parking. Police remain a silent spectator,” an aggrieved person told Deccan Herald.

With the delay in officially handing over the parking space to the contractor, several two wheeler owners have complained of theft of key automobile parts from the bike. Will the officials wake up?

Sources in the KSRTC told this paper that the tender had been approved and allotted to a person in city. The tender awaits nod or clearance from the KSRTC office in Bangalore, he added.

Look forward to travelling in increased comfort

MYSORE: Passengers can look forward to travelling in increased comfort from Mysore to key cities in south India and Maharashtra as the Mysore division of the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is set to introduce long chassis state-of-the-art multi-axle Volvo buses.Such buses have already been introduced in Bangalore on inter-State routes such as Shirdi, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad and Mumbai.

Five buses first

Five multi-axle buses, each costing Rs. 1 crore, will be introduced at first. Divisional Controller G. Prakash said that the buses may hit the roads by March.He added that orders had been placed for 10 more buses. Mr. Prakash said that travelling in the multi-axle buses would be different from buses with conventional axles as passengers would not feel any jerks.Unlike the Volvo bus (Airavatha) which has a seating capacity of 44, the multi-axle Volvo buses can accommodate 55 persons since its chassis is long.“It has a powerful engine and the cooling effect from the air-conditioner is also superior. The comfort factor is high as the buses have large seats and more leg space. In addition, two digital screens will be installed to watch movies,” Mr. Prakash said.The Divisional Controller said that the Mysore division of KSRTC operated its services on inter-State routes such as Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Panaji and Thiruvananthapuram.The buses that were being operated on these routes would be replaced with multi-axle buses on getting permits from the respective States. In addition, the multi-axle buses would also be introduced on the Bangalore-Mysore route which was a “premium” route for the KSRTC as passenger traffic was high on this route, he said.To a question, the official clarified that the fare on these buses would not be more.At present, the Mysore division operates 65 Volvo Airavatha buses on the inter-State routes, long distance routes within the State and between Bangalore and Mysore.

Mysore too will to get Bus Day

On the first anniversary of the launch of Bus Day in Bangalore, the state government has announced that it will start a similar service in Mysore. At a felicitation ceremony on Wednesday, Transport Minister R Ashok said that he had spoken to KSRTC officials on starting the service. “We felt that Bus Day should be gradually introduced across the State. Mysore will be the first city after Bangalore to implement Bus Day”, he said. He added that Hubli-Dharwad was also being considered for Bus Day. Ashok said that BMTC was looking to reduce air pollution by switching to CNG fuel. “Even though it will cost around Rs 150 crore to use CNG fuel for the entire fleet, we will do it”, he said. Such a move is being mooted as a study had recently shown that the incidence of respiratory diseases due to vehicular pollution exponentially among children, he added.The Transport Department is also looking at utilising other green technologies such as hybrid vehicles. Principal Secretary to Transport Department M K Shankarlinge Gowda said that BMTC was considering the use of hybrid buses.Gowda projected that public transportation would have to play a greater role in the coming few years to reduce congestion. “By 2018, we will have to serve nearly one million passengers by Metro, and another four million passengers by bus service in the city,” he said.

CITY TO GET ONE MORE SATELLITE BUS STAND
Quote:
Mysore, Feb.5 (KCU&KK)- One more satellite bus stand is likely to come up at JP Nagar to ease traffic congestion in the city. This will be in addition to the satellite bus stands at Sathagalli and R.S. Naidunagar.

Mayor Sandesh Swamy, accompanied by Mysore City Corporation Commissioner K. S. Raikar, KSRTC Divisional Commissioner Srinivas, JNNURM Superintending Engineer (SE) Suresh Babu, Corporation SE Mahesh and others this morning inspected the land near Sewage Farm in J P Nagar where the proposed satellite bus stand is going to come up if KSRTC is agreeable to the cost of the land being quoted by the MCC.

Speaking to SOM, Suresh Babu said that the concept of satellite bus stand was being used in all metros across the country. "The concept is to have four satellite bus stands in four directions. Thus the JP Nagar satellite bus stand would ease the travel of people coming from Ooty, Kerala and other places enroute. They can get their connecting city service right at the new bus stand. All the four satellite bus stands would lie along the ring road route," he said.

Referring to the satellite bus stand at Sathagalli, he said that buses proceeding to Bangalore would make Sathagalli their onward and arrival destination. But KSRTC is still in the process of making it work, he added.

Suresh Babu said that the land for the proposed bus stand had been identified and that the ball was now in KSRTC’s court.

"They have to take the decision since the land is in the ownership of the MCC and they will have to pay the market price," Suresh Babu said.

The other satellite bus stands are coming up at Kuvempunagr and Yelwal.
