  2. Hi this is a passenger who travels from neyveli to coimbatore in SETC ultra DELUX BUS. Usually these buses are operated at night time because it’s a 6 to 7 hour travel. First problem with the ticket reservation is that they specify that the passenger is male or female. But when the bus is almost filled and incase there is female seats are single those unfilled seats near female are given to male passengers at the last moment and the when we reach the bus they ask us to change the seat instead of the other person and if we say we are fine with the suggested seat by the conductor they dont talk in a responsible manner. Second thing is if there is no such seating problem there is a much more irritation and serious problem than this. It is BED BUGS we usually call them as moota poochi. It not only sucks ur blood it itch and swell ur body. In the whole travel it was keep on bitting me when i approached for assistant from conductor he was not ready with any remedy??? Pathetic situation….how will solve this problem??

  4. In Southern districts especially tirunelveli, Kanyakumari, Tuticourin, Madurai and theni are having separate SETC depots in their districts . But in our Virudhunagar District there is no SETC depot. Even tirunelveli, Kanyakumari, Tuticourin are having each two depots in their districts and one more depot in thiruvanathapuram. When ever we go for long journey we are facing lot of struggle to board the buses which are starting from southern districts and passing through our districts, because they never allowed to board in that buses even that buses having lot of vacant seats. There are three major National highways are passing through our district.

    Compared to other southern districts we can strongly notify that our district having many industries , but still lake of transporatation facilities.

    Govt must understand our virudhunagar district’s people situation, and take necessary steps and immediately set up a seperate SETC depot in our district head quarter (VIRUDHUNAGAR) and operate long route buses from Virudhunagar, Rajapalayam, Sivakasi, Srivilliputhur, Aruppukottai, Sattur, Kovilpatti, Kamuthi, Thiruchuli, Narikudi and sayalkudi.

    Virudhunagar is also having a useless New bus stand , So, SETC management don’t worry about location of the depot. and Virudhunagar is the Centre place of the district it is more suitable for SETC maintenance and workshop depot.
