TNSTC Madurai: New route to Samayanallur and Thirumoghur
TNSTC-Madurai has added two new city bus routes in Madurai city.
R.No: 28C Mattuthavani to Samayanallur via Anna Bus stand, Sellur, ESI, Fathima College, Paravai. Earlier people around Samayanallur has to either take R.No 93 from Sholavandhan to Mattuthavani or they should reach Periar to reach MIBT. Around 40 services will be running in this route with a service for every 20 minutes.
R.No 66E. Periar to Thirumoghur via Therku vasal, Nelpettai, MIBT, Othakadai. Thirumoghur is famous for its Kalamegha Perumal temple and it is one among the 108 Thirupathis. Last saturday i saw atleast 3 buses standing in Thirumoghur with this new R.no. I thought they are SPLs for Puratassi Saturday. Looks like they added it at right time.
With this new routes, the number of city routes in Madurai has increased to 280 operated by 9 depots with 802 buses transporting 6.26 lakhs of passengers.
