New services from Hosur by TNSTC – Salem (DRP)
A twist in the tale of Hosur – Kumabakonam service . Last Diwali session TNSTC – Salem tried to extend it’s Hosur – Jeyankondam service till Kumbakonam but it short lived due to the resistance from SETC. But there was a quite considerable demand to ply an ordinary bus that could reach much earlier than SETC at low cost .Now TNSTC – Salem has hit back by introducing an all together new service between these towns .
Yesterday we came across TN 30 N 0862 ,an transferred bus from salem region on duty . Basically they have extended one of their Salem – Kumbakonam service till Hosur and transferred the route along with the bus to Hosur depot .
Timings : @ Hosur : 18:00 hrs , @ Kumbakonam : 08:30 hrs
Route : Hosur – Salem – Trichy – Tanjavuy – Kumbakonam
just another shot..
Similarly one more Salem – Neyveli TS service is also now extended till Hosur . An another relatively old bus TN 30 N 0519 has also been transferred along with the route to Hosur depot . This is the first attempt by TNSTC – Salem to explore on this route where TNSTC-VPM already has significant presence .
Timings : @ Hosur : 20:00 hrs , @ Neyveli : 06:15 hrs
Route : Hosur – Salem – Attur – Virudhachalam – Neyveli TS
Few weeks ago we also noticed that one of the Hosur – Trichy service from Omalur depot being transferred to Denkanikottai depot considering the ease of maintenance
