Bold Move by TNSTC Salem

A bold move by TNSTC Salem on Salem Chennai route by entering its long distance buses into Madurantakam and Chengalpattu bus stand. While TNSTC SALEM is introducing some path-breaking ideas in various routes, the Salem-Chennai route has gone for a toss. In a major development, now officially all the buses of TNSTC SALEM now enters Madurantakam and Chengalpattu bus stands as per the stickers on these buses. Almost every Chennai bus (EXPRESS) from TNSTC SALEM now has this sticker. This is a very bizarre move and i hope this is the first time a long distance Chennai bound TNSTC entering these towns. Even their own corporation TNSTC Villupuram in this route do not enter these places. But Fortunately, the 1 to 7 Express Salem to Chennai services are spared from entering these towns. So there are two kinds of service from TNSTC SALEM for Chennai passengers.This would make SETC a unanimous choice for a Limited stop travel from Salem to chennai apart from the 1 to 7 TNSTC Salem and 1 to 6 TNSTC Villupuram services.

TNSTC salem has done many innovations in all its operating route like 3.33 ECX the management should start a 5.55 from Salem to Chennai within 5hrs 55 min it should reach Perungalathur. There is a great demand for good express service in this route. TNSTC salem can try this with their existing 2 x 2 SD in peak hours. Hope TNSTC salem should come up with some new ideas in Chennai route.

  1. The idea is good. But will defeat the purpose of long distance. What will happen if people from above mentioned towns occupy the seats by pointing out the signboard. Also Salem bound passengers will look for TTC, or TPTC or private buses.
