  11. Two different routes with same Bus Number in Nanganallur.

    The Bus Route 52P operating from Nanganallur Depot has two different routes. One Service is from Nanganallur – Broadway and other Service is from Nanganallur – Koyambedu. But both the Services are having the same route number 52P. This makes confusion when commuters alight bus. On peak hours and rushtime it is very difficult for students and Senior Citizens and generally for all people. We can understand we are travelling in wrong Bus only when the conductor comes and we ask for the tickets.Can the route number be changes to avoid the confusions ?

  12. On 14-06-2016, I was travelling from OMR to Broadway by Exp 221H Bus no: CDI 1846.
    But the Bus was in worst condition

    1. Both the side Door’s frames were totally broken
    2. Back side door lock frame was hanging {due to this anyone could have got injured]
    3. Some seats were in damaged.
    Even when a MTC bus is running in such conditions how people will travel?

    Pl do the needful & rectify the same
