  1. Sir, Unfortunately ,today I boarded a town bus bearing noTN 63 N 1067 @ KILAKARAI AROUND 11.48 PM & got ticket to PALKARAI bearing nosCAA44/96159.As I am new to the area, I requested the conductor to inform the stage he informed me to ask the next passenger. While I reminded him of his duty of informing the stage, he scold me using unparliamentary words besides telling that he he was medically sick to say the stage.


  2. In TNSTC-Kumbakonam Region, there is no depot at Trichy.
    In TNSTC-Nagappattinam Region, Mannargudi and Sirkali depots should be added.

    Dear Sir.

    I lost my luggage in the bus no TM 0402 – 425J. I was traveling in the tnstc bus from vellankanni depot to Naggapattinum station on 19.09.2015, the bus started at around 7:00 pm from vellankanni and droped us at 7:25 pm near Naggapatinum station. We forgot to take our bag from the bus which was kept under our seat near the front exit door, the bus went further to Naggapattinan depot and than further towards its route. We went to Naggapatinum depot at around 8:00 pm and inquire at the counter, but unfortunately the bus had left, so we were told that the bus would stop at Thiruvur Depot next, we went there too, but could not find the bus.

    It was a green colour bag with the name mention on it as vellankanni jewelers Mumbai. We request you to kindly look into it and investigate further to locate our lagguage. Attached is the copy of the bus ticket for your reference.

    Incase if this letter is not address to the concern dept. than I request you to forward this letter to the right dept. and help us locate the bag.

  16. Dear Sir, I have working in Chennai i am come every week friday midnight 11.30 to 2.00 am at the time Trichy to Pudukottai all bus go to by pass no one stop pudukottai palpannai please instruct


  17. At Kumbakonam the bus stop opposite to TNSTC office find difficult for passengers to drop. There is a speed breaker at the spot. The buses have to reduce their speed at the point. Some conductors ask the passengers to get down from the bus at this point. Some drivers would not stop the bus. The conductor hurry the passengers to get down, when the bus is moving. Moreover some conductors won’t announce the passengers to get down, when the bus stops for traffic. After passing from the point conductors refuse to stop. They ask why don’t you get down when the bus slow down. This is a matter of safety. Hence, i request the official in-charge instruct all conductors to get down the passengers properly. Thanking you.

  29. Yesterday at 5 00 p.m., I have boarded your BUS No. TN 63 A 1642 A/THI, KA/ERA at Periyar Silai Stop through back door. As the seats are vacant in front portion, I moved alongwith my spouse. The conductor, without giving space for us to move, insisted for tickets. By squeezing our body, we managed to sit in the seat. Then we have took the ticket for Devakottai. For that, he ridiculed us. Being a Senior Citizen, I wish to keep quiet. He is not fit for conductor. Before a lady passenger gets down at First Beat, Driver took the bus. What the conductor does at that time. God only knows. Kindly impart necessary training to the running staff in the matter of how to behave with people and to do their duty in letter and spirit. Kindly advice the concerned suitably.
