A Collection from 90’s Kid

Hobbies Collections of kids are becoming now history on today’s technologies. Today’s kids are happy with Tab’s, ipod’s and latest gaming technology. But we are blessed to be the kids of 90’s era. Our hobbies and collections may look waste by elder ones but the happiness they gave at that age and still now. Travelling one of the most happiest moments of life and our best achievement was getting the first single seat opposite to driver. Sitting like a king on the single seat, enjoying overtakes, looking proudly the gesture of the drivers while overtakes and dreaming when we become elder have to drive a bus like him.

Another most happiest moment is collection of our travel tickets. Here we go with with a collection of TNSTC SETC tickets from 90’s. Suyambu Kesavan ( Duoronto K7 ) of Kanyakumari dist collects tickets from his age of 12. Today it look like a great treasure to us. The highlight of his collections are TSTC Nagercoil Madurai Div iii, Offline computerized ticket of SETC, and the lowest fare of city 200 Paise & Mofussil 350 Paise. Many Bus fans have collections of tickets and some missed too but he is one step ahead of everyone by collecting an old leather conductor bag and a aluminium writing pad. we have wondered many times how conductors fill their invoice on the high speed bus with the support of these small sheets. Its our honor to bring this nostalgia for our viewers once again a big thanks to Duoronto K7 for his valuable collections.

TNSTCBLOG goes APP way – The “Whatsapp” way

In an move to strengthen the bonding with our fellow TNSTC fans we are happy to present the new whatsapp group “TNSTC BLOG”.

We cordially invite those who are passionate even a bit about our beloved Tamilnadu State undertaking corporations to participate in this group.

But before that..

1. Why should i join ?

: Obviously in first place it is going to be a lot of fun when you meet like minded folks and no one going to question why you love TNSTC/SETC buses here 🙂

2. What can we do ?

: There is a saying “All knowledge is connected to all other knowledge.The fun is in making the connections.” . Let’s make this as a juncture where we can exchange information on new buses , vintage buses , new services , prominent routes , unconventional routes , village life line routes , timings ,bus body ,seating comfort , photos,reviews and lot more along with your innovative thoughts,suggestions aimed for the betterment of the corporation and commuters.

3. What can be achieved ?

: We can benefit commuters by spreading more awareness on the services and at the same time we also can be a trusted source for feedback to the management.

4. Will it work ?

: Hope it should.

Being the proud owner of largest fleet in India, TNSTC have edged out other state transport units in aspects like low fares, extensive coverage area , round the clock city services ,efficient operations in clearing seasonal crowds and few more and at the same time there is a scope of lot more improvements in areas like luxury segment and induction of modern coaches. Well….the point here is we accept both the facts and open for constructive discussions.

Interested fans can drop us a mail to tnstcblog@gmail.com along with a little introduction about yourself,your passion,location and Whatsapp number.

If any toddler feels that TNSTC/SETC needs to be crushed just for the sake of absence of multiaxle coaches in it’s fleet then better do not board this bus ( group ) .
