Livery Standardization by TNSTC-Coimbatore for city buses running in Coimbatore
We are seeing so much of colors and no standardization being done in our TNSTC buses. Older SLFs came up Red/Yellow/White liveries. City express buses had White livery and there were few light blue colored LSS services running inside the city. New JNNURM SLFs came up with Blue and white with red line for AL SLFs and Orange/Yellow/Blue colors for Marcopolos. Latest entrants of SS Body city buses came up with many colors for their front faces.
After the new fare hike, all the SS body buses were converted as Express services. Suddenly these SS body buses started getting repainted with Green color for their front profile so that we can easily identify them as Express buses.
Repainted from yellow to Green. Have seen few buses moving from Pollachi to CBE after getting repainted.
In Pics.. When it was introduced and After getting converted as City Express and repainted
Stops mentioned for City Express Services.. Not sure whether they really follow it or not..
Looks like the below old TATAs got converted as City Express Service.
Two typical TATA guys standing near by. First one is an LSS service and the other one is an ordinary service. Blue is for LSS and Metallic with Red is for Ordinary service.
This particular guy is running as LSS service from long back(should be 3-4 yrs)
Ordinary bus.. Whether these guys will get a new SS bodies this year?
One more thing to notice here.. For pasting the advertisements in the window panels, they moved the route listing the side profile. Good move by TNSTC-CBE, for which i admire them. Atleast person who knows tamil can read the route names and get into the bus.
