  1. i always admire the tstc-coimbatore bus services.i hate the plan ie. to split the erode division from coimbatore,if it is done the fleet strength will decrease to a huge extent.tirupur disrrict will be very much affected because all the profit will go to tstc-erode as most of tirupur”s coverage is under erode.pls drop the plan.take it as a request.

    jnnurm buses are welcomed.but the thing is they should thoroughly cleaned well everyday.take action on thepassengers if they make the bus dirty.

    care should be taken while painting the buses. select differentattractive colours.buses will lookpretty than the private concerns.

      • no gautham erode district doesnt have well equipped facilities to maintain fleets

      • Erode devision also having two coach building unit.so we an maintain in gud condition… if they separate in to two means we ill get more new rout buses.

  2. I really like TNSTC – CBE (Erode division) in terms of its fleet maintenance, service and providing connectivity. This division will always give preference to connect cities that are not connected till date thus creating success stories as a role model to a great extent. I expect them to continue the same!

  3. Since there is no TNSTC, KMU I’m posting my comments here.

    I really like TNSTC – KMU (Trichy division) in terms of its stickers and providing connectivity to a big city with a growing town in its juridiction. Few routes would be like:

    Chennai – T. Palur (A place in Ariyalur District nearby Jayamkondam)
    Chennai – Thanjavur via Ariyalur (Gives frequent bus services between Chennai & Ariyalur)
    Jayamkondam – Coimbatore/ Tiruppur/ Madurai/ Palani
    Thuraiyur – Coimbatore/ Tiruppur/ Madurai/ Palani
    Musiri – Madurai (Via Kulithalai, Manapparai, Thuvarankurichi & from there NH45B to Maduari)
    Thuvarankurichi – Chennai/ Thanjavur/ Palani via Manapparai &
    Tiruppur (via Natham, Dindigul, Oddanchatram, Dharapuram)

    If you notice, the connectivity from town is to the nearby city and from there to the major city. The buses from Jayamkondam/ Thuraiyur come to Trichy and proceed from there to Coimbatore/ Tiruppur/ Madurai/ Palani, thus avoiding empty runs in any section. This gives amazing connectivity and also helps in the growth of the town into a city.

    Recently, TNSTC, MDU also started giving such connectivity as below.

    Usilampatti – Nagapattinam (Maduari, (NH45B) Trichy, (NH67) Thanjavur, Tiruvarur)
    Usilampatti/ Peraiyur – Chennai

    Such moves are always welcome!

  4. Iam very much happy about to see the new buses under jnnurm scheme to all the routes.But in some long distance also tnstc used this buses like to coimbatore-karur, CBE to Madurai.In this routes it will take hardly 6 hrs journey.But in Jnnurm buses seats are designed as what we have in local routes which is not fit for long travel.Passengers will get back pains and feel discomfort throughout the journey.so please do necessary steps to modify this.

    • Balaji,
      you concerns are good. Even i thought we can have a separate TNSTC regions for tirupur having Tirupur, Palladam, Kangeyam, Dharapuram and one depot in palani. CBE and Erode region can handle the rest. Not sure whether authorities thought about this.

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

      • Are you sure that every Buses runs in Coimbatore-Palakkad route for every one hour? Running time comes around 1 to 1.5 hrs and every 10 min there is a bus between Coimbatore and Palakkad. Buses starts from Ukkadam BS. From Palakkad buses starts from Palakkad KSRTC BS. In both the BS, queue system is followed in all important days when crowd is more.

  5. i took training in tnstc Coimbatore…….. i like the corporation very much and the employees who talked politely and helped us to know the activities in corporation…..
    i like to know when the last recruitment happen for the office employees in Coimbatore corporation……

  6. Sir,
    We need separate Bus Depot for Avinashi ( Which is central town in between three major corporations Coimbatore, Tirupur and Erode ). More over near by villages are connected by town bus only, for that separate depot must be given for AVINASHI.

    • government orderd to form a seperate tnstc region for tiruppur &appointed new gm selvaraj for new tiruppur region it will take sometime for coming to operate a tiruppur region after that seperate depot for avinashi will coming for operation it a news from dinamalar

  7. Dear Sir,

    The CTC Bus starting from Ukkadam to Muthukoundanoor is not comming regularly in the morning 7.50AM trip (from Ukkadam) and in the evening 4.15PM trip (from Muthukoundanor. Because of this problem many Teachers going in that are not able to attend the School in time.So kindly take necessary action to run the bus in time.

    Kind Regards,

    B.Mahendran.

  8. sir,

    i want to know what are the buses to thiruchundur from coimbatore on 10 th november 2010, and also the fares and also the timings sir. also any special buses are there tomarrow..
    thanking you..

  9. i saw tnstc cbe division bodies built in pollachi unit are very simple and beutifull and leg space is also very convinient so tnstc cbe can build all the buses in pollachi unit including erode region bus also

    • coaches are built not only in pollachi but also in udumalaipettai.there is one coach building center at udumalaipettai….pollachi station is busy everyday in building and suppling fire extinguishing coaches all over tamilnadu….,.

      • Udumalpet coach building unit builds more fire vehicles compared to Pollachi unit. Pollachi unit is busy in building new bus bodies and maintaining the older buses for FC. FC works for TNSTC-CBE CBE region are done at udumalpet and Pollachi workshops.

    • we can also see that 2010 model buses running in erode and coimbatore divisions are of the same type.may be they are built in same pollachi or udumalaipettai centers…..is erode division having a separate coach building center anywhere?

      • I’m not sure Erode region has any separate body building unit. They may share the design across regions(i.e., CBE and Erode) within same divisions.

      • yes erode division has a seperate body building unit @pallipalayam carpentring work done in dharapuram depot & other finishing done in pallipalayam

  10. i have been told that tnstc is one of the biggest public mass transport division in india making the other biggest states andhra and u.p to stand behind it….is it true?

    • yes tnstc is one of the biggest public mass transport in india when compare apsrtc &upsrtc tnstc operating buses in remote area also fare is very low in india when compare to other state also

  11. during my journey from tirupur to udumalai,the conductor told me that on january 1 st of 2011tirupur division is to be partitioned from coimbatore division(like the erode div)….is that true?he also told that palani,dharapuram,kangayam,avinashi(new) depots will also be merged with that new unit.
    I want to know whether palani depot belong to erode or cbe region…i could see both 33 and 38 registration buses halted at palani depot.

    • even i too read the news in a daily. Presently TNSTC-CBE has 2 depots in palani. Erode region has one depot and CBE region has one depot. CBE region handles buses mainly to CBE, POY, MTP, PLKD, GVR, CBE-Theni/DGL routes etc., Erode region handles buses to Tirupur/Sathy/SLM/Erode etc., Heard that both these depots will be merged to Tirupur region. Need to wait until the official announcement comes. But they can retain Coimbatore region’s palani depot with Coimbatore region itself and Erode region depot alone can be transferred to new Tirupur region.

  12. i saw yesterday in tirupur old busstand madurai bound tnstc cbe erode region dharapuram branch painted as tirupur in region name and dharapuram in depot name

  13. i saw a TNSTC CBE bus, which is running between thanjavur and tirupur kangeyam depot. three new tirupur buses are coming to kumbakonam. other two buses are like normal express buses. but one bus is like setc, it has only front entrance near to driver. no back entrance. all corporations may introduce this type of express buses, it will be comfort for long distance journey.

  14. i saw one palni depot tnstc erode region painted tirupur in place of region name all erode region depot buses doing fc they changed to tirupur region but till now cbe region buses not indicating the tirupur region name but tirupur region is inaugrating on 17\12\2010

  15. with full of colours tnstc-tirupur region was successively inaugurated by the tamilnadu transport minister k.n.nehru on 17.12.2010….nearly 30 new buses have been launched at the inaugural function.higher authorities add that a new depot will be formed at avinashi,with a new body-building unit(may be…).

    • i think udumalai body building unit will come under tirupur region already dharapuram branch also buil the bodies for erode region

    • It is a very happy news to the persons like me who always think about new depot to Avinashi which has a wide opportunities to operate in all the villages in and around of Avinashi. More over the overload in Tirupur depots will be avoided. One more important thing is Uthukkuli & Kunnathur are part of Avinashi Taluk, are not well connected with Avinashi for coming to the Taluk office works and other civil works which are also be solved. I will be the most happiest person if a new AVINASHI DEPOT is formed.

      Jaya Prakash , Avinashi.

  16. i had see the seat arrange ment in brand new tnstc cbe cbe division is very new & comfortable with luxury tn38 n 2390,tn38 n 2388 buses with new seats

  17. tnstc tirupur region should concentrate in forming new depots in avinashi & vellakoil and bringing buses from erode region which is plying from sathy,karur,gopi,perundurai &nambiyur depot in tirupur town route 7 long routes like theni,madurai&trichy after that only it will be a fullfill tirupur needs

  18. in all the tnstc coimbatore buses it is written 191/coimbatore,in salem buses it is written salem/394……what do these signifies?

    • That might be the post box number or registered address number. For madurai it is 189/MDU, For Vilupuram it is 19/VPM, For Kumbakonam it is 454/TAJ(Tanjore)

  19. Is there any idea to modify the route “Anthiyur-Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi-Coimbatore” into Three Routes namely 1. Anthiyur-Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi (Normal) , 2. Gobi-Kunnathur-Perumanallur-Avinashi-Coimbatore (LSS) 3. Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi-Coimbatore (Normal). Since other than peak hours, “Anthiyur-Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi-Coimbatore” route buses are operating with less seat capacities from Avinashi to Coimbatore and from Coimbatore to Avinashi. The above modification will solve the issue , at the same time will increase the trips by Two more singles.

  20. i have seen in tnstc kumbakonam buses that, in the front glass it is written “ARASU PERUNDHU-THIRUCHI” .but in the side body it is written “ARASU PERUNDHU-KUMBAKONAM”.by the last reply given to me,the reg./p.o no. is written 454/taj(thanjavoor)…..what sort of combination is this?

    • Bala,
      Kumbakonam is part of Tanjore district. So they are mentioning it as “454/TAJ”. Trichy, Kumbakonam, Karaikudi are separate regions inside TNSTC-Kumbakonam division. So they used to write their region name in the front glasses and TNSTC-Kumbakonam(Division name) in the side body.

  21. iad see the buses belonging tirupur region not indicating the region name except depots under taken from erode region they had change the name before dec17 what happen to the cbe region depots

  22. again tnstc goes to private body builders isaw tirpur to salem byepassrider erd region nambiyur branch bus no tn33n2625 built in bangalore body builders mysore road bangalore i dont know what happen for karur private body builders

  24. erode region bus is croosing 2630 ispotted tirupur salem tn33 n 2629 which body had built by bangalore body builders

  25. erode region added more new buses in their fleet tirupur to salem bpr from erd region replaced the all buses to new

  26. Where I will get the bus timings for travel from Coimbatore to Bangalore(via salem) for ultra deluxe and A/c buses.
    I could not get the same for both TNSTC and SETC. Kindly help me ( I am in Mysore)

  27. In NH-47,most of the erode division buses(depoted at erode mofussil-(em)1,em-2,em-3,andhiyur,bhavani,perundurai)often written as by-pass rider(SALEM-COIMBATORE) or express,pp,1 to 5 service(ERODE-COIMBATORE)take the journey to inner villages leaving away the by-pass road.They always make their stops at chengapally,pallagoundampalayam,vijayamangalam……..but they charge the usual express charge…then whats the difference between an ordinary mofussil and en express?erode division really irritating the passengers….the real astonishing thing is all buses running in the same route and under the care of tnstc-salem(depoted at jaheerkhanpet,erumapalayam) and tnstc-coimbatore(depoted at uppilipalayam)are taking the by-pass route and thus they are time and money saving…….

    Will the authorities of tnstc-coimbatore(erode division)look into this matter?

  28. tn38n2458 is runned with out route allocation till last week it also run as tuo poy, poy salem, now it is alloted to poy – erd

  29. sir can u change buses from tirupur to madurai new buses some old buses are operating from gobi. we are fear to travel these buses

  30. Tnstc Tirupur region has got some new town buses(2011 model) as introduced in coimbatore….I have spotted two…They are running between
    100-(Circled route)-Tirupur-Avinashi-Perumanallur-Tirupur
    99-Tirupur-NewTirupur-Perumanallur
    But there are still many dubba buses running in this region, often making rattling sound and looking very nasty ….Hope they ‘ll be thrown out this year…

  31. Town buses operated in Tirupur region from Karumaththampatty depot of Coimbatore division includes..
    32:::Tirupur-Avinashi-Karumaththampatty
    5:::Tirupur-Mangtalam-Somanur
    There are nearly ten to fifteen town buses operated under the control of this depot..All were totally damaged….They have broken steps and improper wiring systems, that questions the life of the passengers travelling in them….The officials should notify this and take necessary steps..They operate the buses in good con dition in routes such as
    90A::Ukkadam-Somanur
    20A::Gandhipuram-Somanur
    Why do they hesitate to operate buses in proper condition in tirupur region???????????

  32. In the Electronic ticketing system a tamil sentence….”aa koo doo..nuu eee” is written in the center..What does it mean?

  33. Tnstc erode division buses are super in external attraction,but BUSES IN NAMBIYUR BRANCH ESPECIALLY ANTHIYUR-COVAI ROUTE TOTAL WASTE in the same branch they introduced new buses in other routes such as
    salem-tirupur,madurai-tirupur-trichy they are adamant because of collection.if you are asking to the official they said there is no other way to travel only these buses collection is a no longer issue.even 8 buses operated by anthiyur branch that too old.this is partiality and their policy.

    • Is there any idea to modify the route “Anthiyur-Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi-Coimbatore” into Three Routes namely 1. Anthiyur-Gobi-Nambiyur-Avinashi (Normal) , 2.

      • Could you please tell me, Is there any bus starts around 9 PM to 10 PM from Tripur to Pollachi ?

      • We should be having buses in this time. Even though i havent travelled in this time, but we will have.. Frequency should be less compared to regular timings.

  34. TNSTC salem region operating mostly old buses in covai-salem route though TNSTC covai region introducing new buses in the same route.most of the long distance buses operated by TNSTC erode region not proporly maintained.

  36. see our coimbatore gets its originality by connecting all peoples [even who are in villages]to main cities wuth the help of TNSTC-CBE route buses.so everyone in cbe comes in contact with all areas. to my knowledge i give an example:a bus S23C connects people of the village ‘THIBANOOR’ to cbe city through a small and bad road in which even a bike can’t travel smoothly.likewise 13A connects the peple of ‘AJANOOR’ to the city. peoples of those villages say that they had never seen a bus running in their village to pick up the people before. so my wish is this happiness among those people should continue……. and TNSTC should not be seperated for tirupur region because if it is under cbe control new,proper buses will be left in new routes in those areas for the welfare of the people.

  38. More and more new model town buses have been introduced in the Tirupur Region….
    99: Tirupur-New Tirupur-Perumanallur
    100: Tirupur-Tirupur(Circled Route)
    101: Tirupur-Tirupur(Circled Route)-2 Services
    26A: Tirupur-Nambiyur
    15: Tirupur-Koduvai
    32: Tirupur-Karumaththampatty-2 Services
    5: Tirupur-Somanur
    Nearly ten new town buses have been replaced yet… But still many buses needs replacement…

  39. For SETC buses online reservation from anywhere is not possible.If emergency means we have to go nearest counter for booking purpose.please provide online specility like IRCTC for SETC buses.

  40. The express busses are not comfortable to travel. The seats are arranged only for two and half persons out of three and not able to keep the leg comfortable because of the front seat has been very closely builded. Comparing to Kerala & Karnataka buses they have charged extra but we can travel in normal buses comfortable. TNSTC is too worst for long journey and their aims is only for collecting the money from passengers.,

  41. today morning we travelled(3persons) in bus no 100 from ganapathy maanagar to gandhipuram carrying geaser along with which may weigh about 3-4kg under ticket no NQX-23-034560,61,62.I was charged a lugagge of rupees 4 as per the ticket no ZEB-22-059087 and 059088(2rps ticket).usually if we carry an article the charges for the lugagge will be charged either equal to ticket fare or less than it .this is for your information.

  42. Very Nice Photos TNSTC; You might have taken lots of pain; A service supposed to be done by Govt. is being done by an individual here; SETC and TNSTC(All divisions) should open up On Line reservation ASAP. Good Job TNSTC; Keep it up;

      Thanks for the compliment. TN govt already issued a tender for opening up E-Ticketing, Mobile ticketing. In the tender they mentioned that it will be started from February 2012. Lets wait and see.

  45. I living at near palladam. the tnstc town buses are servicing towards around villages of palladam. the route of town buses has one terminal are palladam and other terminal is mainly small village. For example, 30,30A,23(pvt) (palladam br) buses are operated from tirupur, palladam via to puliampatti in regular intervel. the one of the terminal of pulimpatti not perfect I think. Otherwise, kamanaicken palayam nearest juction, 4.5 km from puliampatti. if these buses take the terminal as kamanaicken palayam, the commuters of puliampatti can travel by these buses to kamanaicken palayam and will take conection buses to go pollachi, senjerimalai, vadambacheri , covai , somanur and anywhere they want . But now, they can use these buses only to go palladam. so, in future, all of the town buses need its departure and arrival terminal will be end a main road villages. Both terminals will be conectivity concerning to go other direction operating buses. ( pls study http://www.public transport.comsg.)

    • You are correctly said, It happens in more of the villages. I too have examples in Avinashi Area. So the Govt should take initiative to solve this kind of problems. For example, In Avinashi, so many buses returned with Avinashi Bus stand it self , it can be extened till Sevur for the benefit of Avinashi Town side people as Avinashi town extends till Soolai. So every body benefited. Like this also so many buses coming from Gandhipuram and Ukkadam vis Sulur to Somanur can be extended till karumathampatti for the benefit of Sulur and somanur area people to connect and go for Avinashi, Perundurai,Erode and Salem. இதெல்லாம் எங்களோட அன்றாட பிரச்சினை…… இது எப்போ போய் மந்திரிமார்களின் காதை எட்டுமோ…. இதை தீர்த்தாலே பாதி பிரச்சினைகள் தீர்ந்த மாதிரி… ஜேபி

  46. What is the frequency of buses from Coimbatore to Trichy..Please provide the bus timing if possible between 1pm and 6pm

    • Biju,
      We didnt have the exact timings. But frequency is <30 min. You can visit Singanallur BS to catch the buses bound to trichy. TNSTC-Coimbatore and Kumbakonam(Trichy region) is the main operators in Coimbatore-Trichy route. In the night time Super Deluxe buses are operated to Trichy by Trichy region.

    • Sreekumar,
      Coimbatore – Madurai frequency is around 10-15 min after 6 PM. You can visit Singanallur BS to catch the bus. There is one Coimbatore-Thiruchendur AC bus from TNSTC-Covai. It starts around 10 PM from Gandhipuram City BS. If it is weekdays you will get a seat in this. Fare is around Rs.185.

  50. Hello ,

    I need information on bus services between Coimbatore to Kodaikanal and there timings
    and also from Kodaikanal to Ooty there services and there timings.

    • Kodaikanal bus from Coimbatore(Ukkadam) starts around 10.00 AM. It actually starts from Mettupalayam.
      There is no service in Kodaikanal to Ooty route. You can catch the Mettupalayam bus from Kodai and you have plenty of services running to Ooty from Mettupalayam. Or else you can catch a palani bus from kodai and take a coimbatore/Mettupalayam bus from Palani. Then you can catch a ooty bus from CBE/Mettupalayam.

  51. when tier2 cities like kochi,mysore having AC volvo buses running inside the city why tnstc cbe not taking any steps abt this issue and not giving mush importance and cbe is developing as a metro city too!!!

    • JNNURM approved 30 AC buses for CBE and they were not procured by TNSTCs. Not sure why TNSTC-Coimbatore didnt went for any AC city bus services through JNNURM.

  52. sir most of tnstc buses in erode division not having the moving glasses
    and also side view glasses are not fixed.Instead of glass they fixing metal sheets
    but metal sheets are not shield properly so in rainy seasons its diffucult to travel in buses
    FOR EXAMPLE The vechile no tn33n 2290 i think dharapuram branch in this bus 5 nos of sideview glass and
    5 nos of moving glass is not fixed

  53. Dear sir
    I am doing business in thrissur(kerala). weekly once i travel to palani. a KSRTC bus starts from thrissur at 12.40pm.TNSTC bus time 1.00pm. time gap is very less. so TNSTC bus is empty . so ,If TNSTC is delayed and started for 1.15hours.and started at 2.15pm , it will be useful for the passenger.

    i want to go Udumalpet. where can i get bus to udumalpet.
    how many bus stand there in coimbatore and tell the route services from the BS.

    THANKS
    E. Bhoopathy

    • Boopathy,
      for catching buses to udumalpet from coimbatore, you have to goto Ukkadam BS. from there you can catch a direct bus to Udumalpet or catch a palani bus and get down at udumalpet. In coimbatore, we have bus stands at Gandhipuram(Town, Moffusil and SETC), Singanallur(For Madurai, Trichy bound buses), Ukkadam(For Pollachi, Udumalpet, Palani and Palakkad bound buses), Mettupalayam road new BS(mainly for Ooty and mettupalayam bound buses).

  57. sir,please atleast hereafter don change the buses from ordinary bus to air bus.the town bus 10B saibabacolony to kalapati upto last week it was the ordinary bus bt this week changed airbus.from TODAY busfares are so hike please provide ordinary buses .also only one ordinary 90 is running for somanur please change atleast 2 ordinary buses from airbus.this problem is being in al routes please concern.

    • yes. you are correctly said, SLF services is the new way find out for robbery from poor and middle class people by government and tnstc. double fare plus one rupee is charged then ordinery servises. Government and tnstc are decided that all the people are rich who living in corporation region.why they collect these type of fares?
      Fare high is needed one, everyone must welcomed. but SLF fare have been high too. It shows too much. A poor could not use these buses. Because, first two km, 7 rupee will charged that idicates Rs3.50 per km,and, to travalling upto 10 km, We shall pay per km Rs.2.25(4km),Rs.1.50(6km),Rs.1.15(8km).and, Rs1.10(10.km). Is this town bus fares?
      Now a days, tnstc have been converting every routes as SLF slowly.For example, GANTHIPURAM- MARUTHAMALAI (70),SOMANUR-UKKADAM(90,90A). There are no ordinery services! 95% services operating as SLF.In future, all the routes may become as SLF…

    Dear sir.
    I have been doing business in thrissur(kerala) for ten years . I travel to palani once in a week . TNSTC and SETC operate the following 12 bus services from major cities to guruvayur via-thrissur
    Chennai — Salem — Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Salem — Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Salem — Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Salem — Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Erode — Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Madurai —Pollachi——- Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Tutucurin —Earnakulam -Thrissur — guruvayur (SETC)
    Palani —- Pollachi — Thrissur — guruvayur (TNSTC)
    Thirupur —– Pollachi — Thrissur — guruvayur(TNSTC)
    Thirupur — Pollachi — Thrissur — guruvayur(TNSTC)
    Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (TNSTC)
    Coimbatore — Thrissur — guruvayur (TNSTC)
    I have noticed that only one or two passengers travel from thrissur to guruvayur (25km) in both the ways. Onward and return travel consists of 50km for a trip. For 12 buses it is 600km . that means 120litres of diesel which costs of Rs.5160 .I deeply so I would suggest that SETC&TNSTC should audit the income from this particular route for at least one month and stop the service if necessary.
    One day lass for Rs.5160.00 .
    One month lass for 30*5160= Rs. 154800.00
    one year lass for =Rs.1857600.
    save diesel save money ! Save money and save government !

    • right said….. tnstc should once again analyse the income from various routes and the no of services should be changed as per the requirement…

  59. superb covai tnstc.the ordinary town buses almost changed as express and Lss .if painted by blue thats lss.painted by green express also charging 1rs extra in lss .2rs extra in express.wt i am suggesting only 25percent ordinary buses there also we have so many colours of paints. just paint and charge as ur wish . Wt a robbery

  60. EXPRESS,PP,LSS,TSS,3PLUS1,5PLUS1 and SLF. Pls anyone can clarify my doupt?.what are different these kind of services? Same distance,same time,same stops! Fares are the only difference. Yet, Puplic bus has been become to using only the rich not a commen men. Even,a new kind of services(look like above) will be invented by tnstc authorities…

  61. Dear sirs,
    i am premkumar from saravanampatti, i am working in saibabacolony, i have daily traveled in bus,i have travel gandhipuram and changing saibabacolony, no direct bus to saravanampatti to saibabacolony, more saravanampatti people, , changed route gandhipuram, pl my suggestion to pl connect route to sarvanapatti to saibabacolny to saravanampatti, this area is fast develpoment in coimbatore city, more ITparks, engg companies,engg and arts colleges, temple, spl economic zone, so different route runs start from saravanampatti , i will suggest different route pl considered routes,

    1.sarvanampatti – perur via ganapathy, gandhipuram, townhall
    2.sarvanapatti – vadavalli via ganapathy, gpm, vadacovai, agri , pudur,
    3.saravanapatti = vadavalli via ganapathy gpm ,saibabacolony, GCT, agri
    4.saravanampatti -sugnapuram via gpy, gpm,rly station, ukkadam , sundrapuram,milekal
    5.sarvanampatti – eachneri via gpy, gpm ,rly station, ukkadam sundrapuram
    6.sarvanampatti -saibabacolony – via , gpy, gpm, tvs
    7.sarvanampatti – perur via gpy, gpm, gandhipark, selvapuram
    8.sarvanampatti -ondipudur, via – gpy, gpm lakshmimills, esi, singanallur
    9.keernatham – sundrapuram – via- saravanampatti, gpy, gpm , marakkadai,ukkadam

  62. 30H(Somanur- Ukkadam ,via Madhapur)TN33 N 1428 & 40A(somanur-Gandhipuram,via madapur).These buses are mostly like dappa & most of the days,these buses don’t operate in 2nd shift or always coming 1 hour late because of shortage of conductor-driver. so plz arrange conductor-driver for these buses. Transport officers in karumathampatti Branch concentrate only on operating SLF,LSS,EXPRESS buses and mostly avoid ordinary buses.so change our area buses into EXPRESS or LSS to keep a transport facility for village people.

  63. Ayyan Kovil – Gandhipuram Via Madhapur Moffushell Bus had been stopped after the change of the government. Its now operated from Coimbatore to Thiruchy. For the past we had ten singles for coimbatore. Now we have only one single to coimbatore from this bus. We have sent so many requests to karumathampatti branch and head office. They arranged TN33N1359(30H)from Sulur to somanur in morning instead going for ukkadam. We satisfied with this but there is need of transport facility for evening and late evening time,i.e. additionally 3 trips from somanur to sulur for college and school students and public. Further we have got request letter from MLA sulur taluk and Chairman of sulur and submitted on Karumathampatti Dippo and head offfice. Please consider this issue and take right action for the public need. Atlast Operate a EXPRESS or LSS in this route rather than ordinary buses.

    Thanks in Advance

      • At Tiruchi road, karanampettai juction, which is importent juction since that have four way location wise somanur,kamanaicken palayam, palladam, coimbatore roads. All this arounding villages commuters are using the bus services from here. 105,105A,105C,30F,30K(SLF), P7(palladam to sulur) and 19C town buses are operating from here to coimbatore city. But these buses will not have average frequency gap. Some times, all of these buses goes within a hour like a train. Then no services available to long time. For example, upto 11.30am to 12pm, 11:30am 30K, 11:35 30F, 11:45 105, 11:50 19C. All these town buses are going to west direction within half an hour. there is no services till 2:30 pm.this method will not give any profit to commuters and tnstc.. So, pls study the time management, and operate avarage gap between every services. otherwise, the terminus point of sulur aero, if extend to karanampettai (3 kms), it may become very usful to commuters to go for get connection.

  70. Thanks to tnstc. Coimbatore. To alter the terminus sulur aero and exetending till karanampettai as a terminal for the all town buses coming from ukkadam& Ganthipuram. (w.e.f. From 09/02/2012)

    • For Palakkad to thiruchendur, shortest route is Palakkad-Pollachi-Palani-Madurai-Tuticorn.

      For every 15-20 min(from 5:00 AM till 9.00 PM we have one bus in Palakkad-Pollachi route. Then for every 5 min we have a bus in Pollachi-Palani route. You can also catch a Madurai bus from Pollachi. We had one direct SETC bus to Thiruchendur from Poy, not sure whether that is running or not. Tuticorin has 2 direct bus from Pollachi. Check my Pollachi timings link in the blog for more details. You can also try checking Kozhicode-Kayalapattinam SETC bus. It runs via Palakkad. My guess is, it should cross Palakkad by 10.00-11.00 PM.

      Via Coimbatore is little bit circuituos.

    • Morning 1:00 AM, 3:45 AM. Then from 4:15 AM onwards buses are there for every 5 min. I’m providing the information based on the board present in Gandhipuram central BS. Not sure about PP timings.

  71. I was travelling from Chennai to Trichy by latest Super Deluxe bus from TNSTC-Kumbakonam division…. It was far better than old UDs in SETC and other TNSTCs… Also I saw a Super Deluxe bus to Karaikudi region (no starts with TN-63 N ….) from Chennai looking like an Omni Bus…. All these latest Super Deluxe buses are very well maintained…. Why not TNSTC replace all the old ones with new ones….??? It might take time but still I feel worth effort…. Also why not all TNSTCs built their Super Deluxe buses like that of the Karaikudi region one mentioned above rather than the normal outlook….???

  72. Dear sir’s
    I living at near palladam. From palladam till karanampettai, there is only one down bus is operating (p7 palladam to sulur) in this route with very low freqquency. several factories and companies are working presently.since the mofsuil buses stops at laksmi mills (K.N.Puram) only, the mass transportation commuters uses to go in above route by auto rickshaws from palladam and karanampettai . So avoid this problem, to increasing down buses and frequency, It would not enough revenue I think. Otherwise, there is no direct bus in this route to go ukkadam bus stand from palladam. So,operate a new buses from palladam to ukkadam semi moffusil basis every one hour frequency(38km, 75 minitues) via laksmi millls. Karanampettai, sulur, ondiputur, sungam by pass road. Stopping service annanagar, kalivelampatti privu, perumpaali, laksmi mills, arakkulam privu, kodangipalayam privu, karanampettai, sulur aero, RVS, sulur, kumaran kottam, ravatoor privu, paappampatti privu, saraswathi hospital, Irugur privu, Ondiputur, singanallur, Ramanathapuram, chintamani and ukkadam.pls analyz and operate the new buses in this route on trial basis…thanks.

  73. dear sirs,
    Tnstc have operatting the more town buses to village regions for the benifit of village side commuters to go their near city region. Most of the rural service routes are in single service and low frequency. Anybodies have decide to go by bus to village side,they faces some problems like missing the bus and long time waiting for the next bus. For examble, in the SENJERIMALAI to UDUMALAIPET road, MONGIL THOZHUVU PRIVU is the markable junction to go udumalai, veethampatti,arasoor, sulthanpet, kamanaickenpalayam,palladam from there. 4,4A,4(private) town buses operates to go udumalaipet and p10 town operates to palladam as terminal from mongil thozhuvu privu. In this connetivity point, all these buses have not conecection concern.anybody of the kamanaicken palayam or sulthan pet, senjerimalai commuters the want to go udumalai, (p10 operatting route). They change the bus at mongil thozhuvu privu to go udumai if conectivity guarenteed. but, there is no connection concept.the ‘giving and getting’ policy would come among these buses not only there then all the terminus points. I referd the this as oral to palladam tnstc officers and udumalai tnstc officers. yet there is no use.pls consider and study this information to take action….

  74. 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.

    • Vanakkam,
      The arround of coimbatore and tiruppur cities, several town buses are servicing to the village side people and conects those cities. But some town buses have one terminus perfect and another terminus seems poor. For example, UKKADAM to CHANDHIRAPURAM via pappampatti, Route no 77B is operatting. If the commuters are coming to ukkadam, catch other buses they can go anywhere.but in other terminus of chandhirapuram, there is less other bus services in this terminus. The native commuters only of chandhirapuram they can used. Otherwise, if the terminus is KAMANAICKEN PALAYAM to the route 77B, all the commuters may use this bus to go anywhere.(at the kamanaicken palayam terminal, toward to all direction buses available) so, to exdending the terminus to kamanaickenpalayam (5km from Chandhirapuram) would be poweful terminus to the 77B route, the both side terminus would came to perfect. All of the town buses have the above method, the best service aveil to the public..
      The following routes are one side poor terminus:
      1) 105A ESI to ANUPPATTI extend to VENKITTAAPURAM(Pollachi road 3km from anuppatti)
      2) 30,30A TIRUPPUR to PULIAMPATTI extend to KAMANAICKEN PALAYAM 4.5km from puliampatti.

  82. Hi,
    I am residing in aanamalai, I want monthly pass for pollachi to aanamalai, but the official present in the depot said that monthly pass are not given, only annual pass is given?
    can you please provide details?

  83. Vanakkam. Now a days, the around of coimbatore city and tiruppur city, out side from those cities have been increasing papulation as well as traffic density. So, reducing traffic density, to increasing the public transist is one of the way. In the covaiand tiruppur division, TNSTC is operating mass transport system. TNSTC may analyze the following new routes and operate new buses. (Some circular routes)
    1. Ukkadam to Ukkadam
    via Suntharapuram,Pothanur,Chetti palayam, Kallappalayam,Pappampatti,Kannam palayam,SULUR,>>Ravatur privu,Pappam patti privu,Ondipputhur,Singanallur,Ramanathapuram,Sinthamani,Sungam bypass,Ukkadam. route distance:48km(approx) Frequency: every one hour,
    2.PALLADAM to PALLADAM
    via Kosavam palayam,Balasamuthiram, Panikkampatti, Vellappa gaundan palayam,Anuppatti,Veppanguttai palayam,Puliampatti,Mathanaicken palayam,K.Krishnapuram, KAMANAICKEN PALAYAM>>Manasi palayam,Pulliappam palayam,Chittambalam,puthur,Vadugapalayam, Palladam. route distance 40km(approx) two buses enough. 14 villages and one city will be coverd.Palladam, Kamanaicken palayam,Ketthanur are the three main road junction coverd..
    2,PALLADAM to PALLADAM
    via, Naranapuram, Kallam palayam,63,Velam palayam,Chinnakkali palayam, Arumutham palayam,chinnakkarai,TKT mill,AB nagar,Nochi palayam,Ugayanur,Valasuppalayam,Pongalur,Mahajanapuram,Kattur,Kondaram palayam,Karappalayam,Malaiyappa palayam,Kalli palayam,E.Vaduga palayam,Elavanthi,Karasamadai,Kethanur,Pulliappam palayam,Chithambalam privu,Vaduga palayam, PALLADAM. Route distance 60km(approx) 25 villages and one city are coverd. Palladam, 63,Velam palayam, TKT mill, Pongalur,Kallipalayam,Ketthanur are the main road junction coverd..

  84. from palladam to tiruppur via, 63 velampalayam,Iduvai, Andipalayam two city buses are serving namly route nos 4/6 and 2B. The tnstc palladam branch is operating thease buses. The method of operation of these buses confuesed the commuters. One single goes via 63, velampalayam,Iduvai, tiruppur. And, other single comes to palladam via veerapandi,Arulpuram,Mahalaxmi nagar. Rather then this method, may change this route as a circular route that Palladam to Palladam or Tiruppur to Tiruppur via same villages., every commuters of this region, will get conveniance to go Palladam,tiruppur, with single ticket and no confused about timing and route. May analayze?…

  85. dear sirs,
    The tnstc mofussil bus from kinathukadavu to Sulthanpet&Tiruppur(old name is S2) via Vadachittur,Mantrampalayam,Kattampatti,Senjeri malai,Sulthanpet is operatting by Pollachi Branch. The last trip departures at Kinathukkadavu on 8.00 pm till Palladam. From Kinathukkadavu to Kattampatti, more commuters uses this bus. But, from Kattampatti to Palladam 3 or 4 persons only uses this bus to go Palladam. When i travelled by this bus some time i notified that. So, this bus not needed go palladam for few commuters. Because every 7 to 10 minitues frequvancy available at Kattampatti junction to go Palladam. So above few commutters will change the bus at Kattampatti to go Palladam. Otherwise, two options here.1.this bus back to home.2.may operare to low frequeny route like Kamanaicken palayam to Karanampettai (13k.m).Mallegaundanpalayam,Karadivavi,Paruvai,Karanampet regions people will get benifit by this operation. sulur and Somanur nearest people will get benifit also.sir, pls analyize this.. My contact no.9965932683; 9489362473.

  86. 30H(Somanur- Ukkadam ,via Madhapur)TN38 N 1436,10A(Somanur- Ukkadam ,via Madhapur)& 40A(somanur-Gandhipuram,via madapur).These buses are mostly like dappa & most of the days,these buses don’t operate in 2nd shift or always coming 1 hour late because of shortage of conductor-driver. so plz arrange conductor-driver for these buses `BUT THIS BRANCH THEY CAN OPERATE SPECIAL BUSES LIKE(karnampettai to karumathampatti,coimbatore to tirchy). Transport officers in karumathampatti Branch concentrate only on operating SLF,LSS,EXPRESS buses and mostly avoid ordinary buses.so change our area buses into EXPRESS or LSS to keep a transport facility for village people.

  87.

    • From thrissur to Palani, KSRTC and TNSTC-CBE operates regular buses. Buses originate from either Thrissur/Guruvayoor. I didnt have the timings of those buses. If there is no direct bus to Palani, Then board a Pollachi bus from Thrissur and you can catch a separate bus from Pollachi to Palani. From Palani, SETC operates a new 43 seater UD. It starts from Palani by 7.30 PM. Private buses are also operating buses to Bangalore.

  140. Many of the buses has maintenance problems many passengers traveling in buses are facing many problems.so,they are avoiding government buses,and ticket price in private buses are low but in government, are high and there are many buses like LSS,EXPRESS,SLF…that has different ticket price. it should to be fixed as same price.but private buses with low fares are maintained good ,but in government buses they are charging high cost….. but maintenance is very poor.and the government is not proper in payment benefits and retirement benefits to employes.government transport is only as service to people but they are running transports for profit. all the problems should go into the notice of the higher authorities who are responsible for these works….government should give financial support to the transport departments
