New buses hits road on more waiting

Seems the days are gone where new buses are dumped for months at depots (worst case of  4 to 5 months ) waiting for the Chief Ministers appointment for inauguration. There has been spotting of new buses across different corporations put into service silently in the recent past.

In spite of loosing the advantage of tracking the numbers on the newbies with ease during inaugurations ,we at TNSTCBLOG welcomes this SILENT move.

Below are the couple of  in house built TNSTC-Salem new buses captured for our viewers

TN29 N 2736 of Dharmapuri Moffusil depot on Bengaluru – Dharmapuri route


TN30 N 1539 as 3.33 ECX from Jhonsonpet -2 Depot


Buses built on TML chassis (like 2736) has got a face makeover which is not quite appealing though as compared to their previous releases and the Ashok leyland ones retains their current profiles .
