Does MTC care about its Volvo buses ?

Apparently, Chennai’s Metropolitan Transport Corporation has decided that its overpriced, underutilised fleet of Volvo buses can be allowed to rust away, so that the tax-payer can be billed for the next set of “super luxury” buses.

Take a look at this one, operating on Anna Salai (Mount Road).

Quite obviously, it is quickly descending into a rusty pit. What a shame!

  1. Sir ive would like to say something. All these volvos are now are being repaired and repainted. As these buses are under insurance it would be easy to recondition them. Each paintwork cost more than what we think it would be. Time is required for correction of these vehicles as all of a sudden all of them could not be taken down for repairs and for your information people have started using these buses and i have seen buses plying through porur and guindy at full strength. When the first blue line and yellow line buses came we thought that these would not be utilized fully but now see most of the people use them. Certainly Volvo buses will be utilized to full extent. Most of all don’t say they are underutilized say we underutilized them for now may be they might be the only low cost buses in future.
