Classic – Successful Product of SETC

Classic Bus

SETC tried a new variant Classic Bus first of its Kind in India in govt sector with Pantry and toilet facility, two buses taken from the route and completely refurbished with modern equipments pantry containing a small microwave oven, mini refrigirator. Chemicl toilets were imported from German and started its service on Jun 20 2013. we had an article in our blog on flag off ceremony of Classic Bus.

Sucess wont come easy

As it is an intial idea SETC dont want to play with investing on new buses, as the two buses are refurbished one, it faced some breakdowns, As it was new innovation public and medias were eager to know the status of the buses, although passenger welcomed this bus, medias targeted the bus and write down the history of the buses and break downs, SETC overcomed all the problems in a short span of time and rectified the technincal issues in the buses and started to ply sucessfully on Road, now classic buses are rockstar on the route. the big plus of the bus is toilet is at rear end of the bus and with clear exhaust and the buses is also Non A/C there is no chances of bad odour inside bus. Now Buses are full with pa at both ends, Hope SETC should expand this innovation in other routes also soon.

    Dear Sir,

    I am dilip and am a business graduate, working in chennai.
    I belongs to Virudhunagar District.

    The reason to write this letter for provide adequate SETC transportation for our Virudhunagar district.

    In this district, population is growing rapidly and also a lot of industrial centres, , are upcoming in near-future .

    There are three major National Highway routes are passing through in virudhunagar district. But there is no adequate SETC buses for our district.

    We need seperate SETC depot in our district , Virudhunagar is the centre of the district and it is the district head quarters.

    So better setup a seperate depot for our district in virudhunagar.

    From Virudhunagar to sivakasi 25 km on south west direction

    From Virudhunagar to Srivilliputhur 45 km on west direction

    From Virudhunagar to Rajapalayam 55 km on west direction

    From Virudhunagar to sattur 25 km on south direction

    From Virudhunagar to kovilpatti 45 km on south direction

    From Virudhunagar to Aruppukottai 17 km on east direction

    From Virudhunagar to Kamuthi 52 km on east direction

    From Virudhunagar to Watrap 45 km on North west direction

    Apart from there are some more reason to set SETC Depot in Virudhunagar

    they are SIPCOT virudhunagar SEZ coming soon

    and Virudhunagar District is the Industrial Centre of southern tamilnadu.

    People in our district are getting struggle to get seats in buses which are coming from Thirunelveli, Nagercoil, Marthandam, Thiruvanathapuram, Tuticourin, Thiruchendur and sencottah. they are not prefer to allow .

    So we want seperate depot in VIRUDHU NAGAR. from here SETC can opearate long distance buses for rajapalayam, srivilliputhur, sivakasi, satur, kovilpatti, aruppukottai, kamuthi, sayalkudi, kariyapatti, thiruchuzhi, and all major spots of our district.

    And one important point is Depot Space is readily available in Virudhunagar. that is our useless VIRUDHUNAGAR NEW BUS STAND.

    So do the needful for us and it may very helpful to our district people

    Our longer dream will become true in your hand

    Thank You.
