I got this info through RTI. I think it is the smallest one. One can easily see it from Avinashi road Fly over. Many moffusil route buses are now getting maintained in Pollachi and other depots. Dhandapani or Kumaran can tell us better.

There are totally 247 Routes operated by TNSTC Coimbatore within Coimbatore City. Also there are private buses operated in same routes. There are few routes in which only private buses are operated. So there should be around 260 different routes. Besides there are mini buses operated in outskirts. My guess is around 700-800 buses and minibuses(together) should be operated.

Arul,
Upplilipalayam is one of the smallest depot in CBE. :) But Uppilipalayam handles both Night and Day time buses. So we may not see all buses standing at the depot at same time.

Many moffussil routes got extended to Mettupalayam depot. And few of them to Pollachi. MTP-2 depot operates many long distance buses from Coimbatore to South TN. It also has one UD in service.

MTP-1/2(not sure) operates few SLF city bus services too. One among them is Ukkadam-Press Colony(4D) route. Pollachi-1 depot also operates in city bus service. Gandhipuram/Railway Station-Kinathukadavu service.

Good topic - and thanks for the interesting stats, Chidambaram!

But, many threads for CBE may cause overlaps! We have already seen this in case of MDU - city updates, Transport and also Tamilnadu Buses topics.

Cheers,
Raj

Welcome for a Separate topic specially for Coimbatore.

Uppilipalayam depot of CBE region mainly maintains all CBE- Salem bound buses, CBE - Erode - 2 buses and some Sathy and Karur buses.It is the smallest depot compared to all other depots of this region.

Ooty, Kothagiri buses are maintained at Ukkadam depot.

Most of long distance buses are operated from MTP depot but starting point from CBE, such as Sivagangai, Tanjore, Thiruvannamalai,Rajapalyam etc., Almost all Tirupur buses via Avinashi are opearted by Head office branch.

Lattest bus from CBE region is TN-38-N-2543 - Cbe - Salem.

Good thread to start.

Now its time to set up a separate sub forum like Western Tamilnadu where we can include threads of CBE, CBE hangout, CBE IT, CBE Transportation, Tirupur, Erode, Salem, CBE-Salem ind corridor and Hosur threads. In a similar fashion Southern Tamilnadu will be helpful for the Madurai region. This will make it easier to post and read.

Can we request MOD's
