Chennai’s missing mini-buses: An idea for the AIADMK government

There is no clarity on the transport policy of the AIADMK government, barring the red and off-white colour to be used when repainting MTC buses. The mini-bus scheme is in the doldrums.  Fortunately, the Metro Rail work had started in the DMK regime, or that would also still be up in the air.

If this inflation-stoking government is interested in providing an alternative to citizens, it should think of transport options that use this form factor – a medium sized bus that can navigate the inner city areas, run on specified, numbered routes and collect regulated fare.

This is a Mercedes Benz Sprinter City series van, with obvious benefits for all passengers, particularly the disabled and elderly, thanks to universal design. Does the Tamil Nadu government care?
