    Hi Dhandapani,

    This is a great intiative from your side.I had just one suggestion regarding your portal.You can provide link to good collection of Bus snaps on Picasa (eg.Binai’s) or other interesting Portals related to the Transportation Sector.

    Thanks,
    Subbu(SRDFII & Skyscrapercity)

      Subbu,
      Thanks for your suggestion. I too have more pics.. I’m not able to embed the slideshow from picassa here. WordPress is not supporting that. But for sure i’ll include the pics.

      • tnstc says:

        Subbu,
        Wordpress is supporting javascript based slideshow from today. Luckily saw the mail from wordpress and updated a small slideshow. Will put separate slide show for each divisions. :)

    Please maintain the LED-s that have been fixed at the buses.there are lot of mistakes too.instead to write karumathampatty it was displayed karumathaaampatty.please spot the errors and correct them.
    one question?
    before the operation of jnnurm town buses there were many low-foot-door buses running all through the city.but now they have been altered for the operation in other mofussil routes.instead they could be shared for local operation in other cities like tirupur,pollachi,udumalai..see it should be noticed that often the press points thst many town route buses in those cities were in a bad condition.pls take necessary actions before this matter becomes a big issue..

    thank you

    is there any possiblity of new bus stand near thirumangalam madurai district…………

    • TNSTC says:

      Hi Senthil,
      I’m not in a position to answer this question.

      FYI. This is not an official blog of TNSTC. I’m updating this blog based on my experiences and the news which i’m getting.

  5. Ashraf says:

    Moffusil Buses from Tuticorin, Kanyakumari ( Coastal region ) can directly go to Chennai via Ramanathapuram on East Coast Road vice versa instead of going via Madurai and Tiruchi, to ease traffic congestion. This will enable us for a better connectivity to major towns, to move safely, economically and comfortably. This will stimulate growth to the backward areas and to facilitate religious tourism. The Moffusil buses leaving chennai to southern cities causes traffic bottleneck slow traffic movement. Suggest that diversion of buses travelling to coastal region should use ECR route fully rather using the existing route.

    There are two more TNSTC corporations which u left out my friend namely TNSTC – KUM and TNSTC – SLM. You can add the details of these two corporations on this blog. If you have no details about TNSTC – KUM, i can provide whichever i know. TNSTC – Trichy (KUM Ltc.) is one of the biggest division in all TNSTC’s which has more than 3000 fleets in it.

    • TNSTC says:

      Isham,
      I know that i missed out TNSTC-SLM and TNSTC-KMU. I couldnt able to travel to those places to get the pics and other details. If you have those details, please share with me so that i can update the blog.

    This blog is for all TNSTC’s i guess, not only for TNSTC – CBE and MDU, so please update this news in this blog

    Induction of 3,000 buses by January

    TIRUCHI: All the 3,000 new buses sanctioned for this year would be inducted into the fleet of the State transport corporations by January, Transport Minister K.N.Nehru said here on Tuesday.

    About 400 of the new buses have already been inducted and the remaining would hit the roads soon. The state transport corporation had a total 20,118 buses and over the past four-and-a-half years, 15,000 new vehicles have been inducted into the fleet, Mr.Nehru said speaking at a function to launch new bus routes and distribute promotion and regularisation orders of the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC), Kumbakonam.

    Mr.Nehru disclosed that about 13,500 unemployed persons would be imparted heavy vehicle driving through the 20 training schools of the transport corporations in the State as part of the State government’s decision to provide skill development training to unemployed youth. As more buses are added to the transport corporations, these persons would get employment.

    The Union government, he said, has granted income tax exemption to the pension fund of the state transport corporations, paving the way for the implementation of the new pension scheme for employees of the corporations.

    The Minister also assured that the services of all drivers and conductors in reserve crew would be regularised. The reserve crew were meant to be deployed whenever the regular crew went on leave. These persons were being gradually regularised whenever vacancies arise out of superannuation of the regular crew. Over the past few years, over 45,000 persons have been provided employment. About 5,000 to 7,000 persons in the reserve crew are to be regularised. “Do not have any apprehension about your future. We will regularise the services of all. You have already been given bonus and there will be no job loss to any person,” he said.

    Mr.Nehru appealed to the State Transport Corporation employees to ensure the proper maintenance of the buses. He also urged the people to desist from showing their ire against corporation buses. “Whenever there is an agitation for any reasons, buses become the immediate targets. These buses are acquired with public money,” he observed.

    Mr.Nehru inaugurated new buses operated in 40 routes and distributed promotion and regularisation orders to 162 persons on the occasion.

    Mahesan Kasirajan, Collector, S.Sujatha, Mayor, Anbil Periyasamy, A.Soundarapandian and R.Rani, MLAs, T.Ranagaraj, Managing Director, TNSTC, Kumbakonam, P.Chandrasekaran, General Manager, TNSTC, Tiruchi, and T.T.Balsamy, Corporation Commissioner, were present.

    Hi Dhandapani,
    I have been following you posts quite long regularly. Good work indeed. I would like to make it as a point to ensure that you report as Nagercoil (“co” shall be pronounced as “co” in colgate and “il” as “il” in oil)and not Nagarkovil. We in Nagercoil are used to our place being pronounced as Nagercoil(illakkaNapo’li, the beauty of our grammar) instead of Nagarcovil/kovil. The list won’t end if u start spelling places as written in Tamil(Tamizh) like koyampuththoor, vizhuppuram, se’lam, mathurai, thiruppoor,thindukkal, naamakkal, raamanaathapuram and so on. Actually, i feel the spellings got these way how the locals used to pronounce in their own local slang when British came to India.

    No hard feelings anyway:-)

    Thanks & Regards,
    Anil.

    TNSTC BUS DRIVER TALK N DRIVE..WHILE TRAVELLING FROM CHENNAI TO VILLUPURAM

    ON 14.MAY.2011 AT 05.00 AM. WE WENT TO VILLUPURAM FOR ATTENDING ONE TRAINING PROGRAM AT VILLUPURAM. AS THERE IS NO EXPRESS TRAIN SERVICE IN EARLY MORNING WE DECIDED TO GO BY BUS. WE GOT THE BUS FROM TAMBARAM BS AT 05.00 AM THAT WAS PERTAINING TO TRICHY AND THE REGISTRATION NO IS TN45 N 2648.

    THE BUS HAS AROUND 40 PEOPLE AND THE SPEED WAS AVERAGE. BUT WE REGRET TO INFORM THAT THE DRIVER WAS TALKING IN HIS MOBILE PHONE FROM THE BEGINNING ONWARDS.

    EVEN WHILE SHIFTING GEARS, OVERTAKING BUSES, GETTING OVERTAKE BY OTHERS AND IN BRIDGES ALSO HE DID’NT TAKE CARE OF ANYTHING AND CONCENTRATING IN MOBILE PHONE.

    IN CERTAIN TIME WE SHOCKED THAT IN TRAVELLING IN PALAR BRIDGE (NEAR MAMANDUR) HE CHANGED GEAR BY ONE HAND AND TALKING CELL PHONE IN OTHER HAND. HE DIDN’T BOTHER ABOUT STEERING.

    WE HAD A THRILLED JOURNEY AND WE WERE NOT ABLE TO DO ANYTHING.

    WE SUGGEST TO TNSTC TO FOLLOW STRICTLY ABOUT THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ALL DRIVERS TO SWITCH OFF THEIR MOBILE PHONES/ OR NOT TO TALK WHILE DRIVE.

    ACCIDENTS ARE NOT HAPPENING; THEY WERE MADE BY THE MISTAKE OF SOMEONE WHO CARELESS.

  27. Hi sir,
    This is pradeep kumar from ODDANCHATRAM , A municipality in Dindigul DT. From oddanchatram bus stand there is a regular bus service to chennai.. we r provided with air bus.. the problem is that during the season time ( Peak days ) Bus wont come and they state that bus under repair.. On that day we have found that bus coming from chennai.. We dont know the reason why they are telling the hell reply to us..

    and also ther is no online counter.. Some black sheep from ur dept utilising that facility…. The ticket booking will start by 10 AM on every day , for that days travel.. I used to be the 1 st person to go there to get the ticket.. He started the number from 21 and ends with 36 and states that ticket over. But later collecting extra amount or higher recommendation they r filling the remaining 20 seats.. So Ordinary people like us suffering a lot.. We r approaching the govt bus since omni bus demanding high fare..

    So pls do necessary steps to open ONLINE reservation counter … Dindigul and palani are municipality having the online facility.. But oddanchatram is the municipality that dont have online booking.. And also ther is no place for ticket reservation.. The man who gives TOKEN will wander the bus stand , We the people have to find them and get the TOKEN . So sir, Pls take necessary steps to solve our problem and do us the favour.

    Thanking you,

    Regards

      For fixing the fare, we need to look at the following parameters.
      1. Number of KMs the bus will be running.
      2. Type of Permit in which the bus is running. Based on the charges and stops might vary.

    Guys. I have been following your comments in this website for quite sometime. Awesome. It shows your interest levels in analysing the bus designs… Great Keep up the good work.

    I would like to get your opinion or advise about the following. I am planning to travel to tirupati with my family in SETC from Madurai. I have 2 choices – either Ultra deluxe from Nagercoil or A/C coach from Madurai.
    Since it will be a 12 hour journey, I am very particular in selecting the bus. Kindly advise which depot bus among the above mentioned 2 is better maintained – in terms of performance, neatness etc., so that I can select the bus based on your suggestions.

    • TNSTC says:

      We have UD and AC buses running from madurai. Few UD buses pass via madurai. Madurai-Thirupathi also has UD and AC servies starting from madurai itself. Sencottah-Thirupathi, Nagercoil-Thirupathi and Thiruchendur-Thirupathi runs via madurai. All these three buses takes 3 different routes. IMO Madurai-Thirupathi AC bus looks better and neatly maintained by Madurai SETC depot(Havent used it, but saw this bus many times at MIBT).

      Timings:
      6:35 PM(AC) via Vellore, Chitoor
      8:00 PM, 9:00 PM(UD) via Vellore, Chitoor
      4:30 PM(UD) –> Timings of this got changes i think. Check it..
      6:15 PM(UD) –> Via Kanchipuram.. Starts from Nagercoil.

      Note: Except the buses starting from madurai, all others are converted to new 12M buses and they have very less leg space compared to the Madurai’s AC bus.

      • Anand says:

        Thx for the immediate and informative reply. Based on your suggestion, I will book in A/C bus from Madurai.

        Keep up the good work.

    • TNSTC says:

      I too searched and find that they are not providing any boarding details for CBE buses. In case of SETC and Buses bound to Chennai, boarding point is SETC Bus stand. TNSTC buses bound to Hosur comes in Gandhipuram BS. All south bound TNSTC buses(Except CBE-Thiruchendur AC bus) should have the boarding point as Singanallur.

  48. Santhosh says:

    Sir, iam a regular traveller from villupuram to chennai by VPN div bus. Though many new buses are being introduced by VPN div the seat and traveling comfort have not improved.even many years before they had non stop buses between Mysore and Bangalore which would be roughly the same distance as VPN to chennai. But they have no non stop buses and the time taken is around 4hrs which can be easily brought down to 2hrs 30mins.all buses are run as express and they stop everywhere. Similarly why can’t they introduce like garb rath trains for example good 2#2 seats with good leg space of course no push back but ac buses so that the fare need not very high.

  49. dumbs says:

    Surprised that there is a fan for TNSTC. Here is my experience

    I booked a ticket online from Trichy to Bangalore. I chose one bus from 4 choices. When I went to the station the person in charge said that there was no such bus. He mentioned that sometimes a bus comes but it is never on time. So basically I paid for a ticket on a bus that did not exist!

    Apparently I had to cancel the ticket online only. By the time I tried, the website said I was past the journey time and could not cancel.

    For the last one week I have been trying to cancel the ticket with no luck. Off the 2 phone numbers listed one is for online ticket issues and other is for general. The former says that they cannot help in cancelling and the latter is always busy or out of order. No replies when I email them either.

    Is there anything we can do?

    I should have googled before buying. My mistake.

    Irresponsible Behaviour by conductor:
    I had a unpleasant experience while travelling in Coimbatore City on the private city bus No: 19G (RVS SVJ) (TN 38 U 1837) from Townhall to Murugan Mills on March23, 2012. On the trip between 10.35 to 10.50. The charge for Town Hall to Murugan Mills is 4Rs but he asks 5Rs, I gave 5rs and got the ticket(I have the ticket with me) . They are collecting 1Re extra from all the passengers. Where 3rs ticket is 4rs, 4rs ticket is 5rs, and 5rs ticket. This Conductor fleece public by charging more than the ticket price under the context of “that is the rate”. And he is not stopping the bus in bus stops. When my stop comes, I called the conductor to stop the bus on murugan mills stop he is simply saying that the bus won’t stop in Murugan Mills Stop. I argued with the conductor to stop the bus in Murugan Mills, He used bad words on me. I was shamed and got depressed while other passengers are staring at me. And he used to stop the bus on next stop Saibaba Kovil. I was hurried to my computer class which starts 11.00 AM by walking 1km (saibaba kovil to Murugan mills). It is a constant scene in most private buses nowadays.I request the RTO authority to take up grievance of this nature and take strict action the buses who operate against the laid down norms and take necessary action regarding this issue so that he will not repeat this mistake again. Also bus owners,please have some code of conduct for the employees to behave properly during their service, it will help the general public.

      We dont have a direct service in Kolar(Ka)-Pollachi route. You can reach Vellore/Hosur from Kolar. From there you can get a Bangalore-Pollachi bus. Even you can get a Coimbatore bound bus and from Ukkadam BS you can reach Pollachi very easily.

    Hai i am revathi

    here every body says about the misbehaviour of drivers and conductors of transport department. But is there anybody knows the torture experienced by the drivers in the department especially in TNSTC. The great transport corporation of Tamil Nadu!!. My husband is a driver in TNSTC and posted to Kalahasti route. Everything was fine. one year before he was asked to change his route and give it to another one who is very close to ruling party. but he was denied. then he was suddenly relieved from his route (route is given to the above person) and kept as a spare driver. As a spare driver, he went to duty at morning, no duty will be given to him he stand there without duty since morning to night and return to house in the midnight, but this day has been taken as leave for him no attendance will be given. After some period, trichy route (whole night driving) was given to him. when he arive from trichy, he was compelled by controller to do double duty, how is it possible? Is it safe for passenger and driver? Is the driver is a machine? When he refuse to do double duty he was threatened by the officials (Controller and Branch Manager) as “in future no duty will be given to you becareful”, etc. Next, when he takes casual leave by obtaining controller signature, branch manager was not accept his leave and put absent in the attendance (Revenge) and as usual no duty will be given to him wantedly. One day he was asked by the controller to come early around 6.00 AM to take trip. My husband wake at 4′o clock and went. when i make call to him around 11.00 AM, he said they did’nt give any duty. He is wait, wait , wait there and finally he returned to him. On the way through his mobile, they asked to take 10′clock bus. Since the whole day without duty will be treated as leave, he accept and attend duty. See, usually the driver for night driving has to take atleast two hours rest in sleep, but he wake up early morning and there is no rest for whole day. again he can not take rest, without rest he completes his trip. Do you know that night there is an another person without sleeping, it’s me. I loss my peaceful sleep for the past one year. Please save my husband.

    Yesterday, when I was clicking buses in Madurai Jail road area, a cycle kadai old man became interested on what I was doing. I explained to him what I was doing and showed him the pics :). He told that the buses TVS used to operate were the best according to him. There were no leakage of water inside and they won’t compromise in their quality at all. He felt bad for the new age bus materials and said that they are now comprised of more of Wood and plastic and we have to search for iron inside the buses. He said that those days a bus required a full day to get burnt completely and new age buses take only half an hr to one hr to get burnt because wood and plastic used. We are new age people and we have to get an idea on their buses only from their experiences.

    We became friends such that he pointed on buses when it came and he was happy when i got perfect shots of buses. He even ordered tea for me to drink (Madurai people known for their affection is it not?). But I asked him to cancel the order and left the place after some time. Good experiences while buses spotting.

    I request the Town Bus Authorities in Madurai to look into the matter below said. The Name Boards showing the place of destination and (via) details, are fixed 9 inches inside. This is not visible to road-side standing passengers. For example, in Indian Bank Colony Stop, there stands an oldman. He wants to go to Keelavasal. A 23 numbered bus comes. The name board is not visible. Only Periyar Bus Stand is visible. But below it, the (via) Therkkuvasal/Simmakkal could not be seen. The version goes under the frame. I request the authorities to arrange for a visible and clear name board, showing clearly, the “via” route.i.e. Therkkuvasal/Simmakkal. Futher, 10 buses via. Simmakkal and 1 bus Therkkuvasal are plying. Even that 1 bus has to be missed because of the unvisible name-board. Please do the needful for better service to public.. A.T.R.SOURA

  60. A.T.R.SOURA says:

    Madurai Airport is enlarged and several flights from abroad are likely to come here. From now the TNSTC should connect all parts of Madurai city with the Airport. For this a route may be added from Natham/Oomachikulam to Airport via Therkkuvasal.
