Chennai Govt. MTC buses - (formerly PTC) / Crowded buses & worst roads

India Review updated:
4.65
Chennai! The most polluted town ever in India. No one cleans the roads and streets, where lot of heaps and fine sands flying around. The motorist and pedestrians are daily facing a kind of hell.

The PTC buses, my goodness, the State Govt (they only own and run the buses, and they never give it to private people for some good political reasons..), never care for "all- time- crowded" buses, where human beings are dumped like debris. The PTC drivers and conductors, they normally never obey to the time-keepers and depot managers, so no time-table, nothing, and no time announcements for the passengers either! Roads are...really...the one..from bullock-cart age! No improvement... No road widening... nothing... after the British rulers gone! Even God cannot help this town, surely for another 1000 years!!

Crowded Buses

I am working in a private concern near Kotturpuram, and my only option is to catch 21G bus which stops near to my office. Today it was a bad experience I used to face, which I never realised before. For more than 45 minutes, I am standing at the bus stop and not a single bus is available, even if it comes too, it is crowded with footboarders. The government launched deluxe buses and Ac buses, but it all comes at same time after 1 hour break. The bus conductors & Drivers are irresponsible with their timings. During the office hours morning 8.30 to 10.00, if the buses are adequate, it will be more helpful. Being the middle classers, it is not easier to spend 60 or 70 daily to come to the office. The same situation is with the M9 Bus which goes to Adambakkam where my Residence is. The only option is catching the share Auto's. I will be very greatful and thankful if all these problems have been solved in future.

recently our government inaugurated new flyover near thyagaraya nagar(panagal park)
what is the purpose of introudcing new path for traffic control it is really an eye wash
most of the auto are allowed through downside and allowed parking in the leftside of the road as well vehicles like car bike and others are allowed to park both side of the roads in pondybazar. was
it necessary ? why the public are distrubed ? how the traffic controling is possible if it is so.
the near by public servant are not giving more attention but caring their personal benefit.
nearly more than three years the vehicles like two wheelers, four wheelers, three wheelers are
increased enumorously why? the government must think of public inconvenience in all posibilities
daily the office goers and others commuters are trouble and made inconvenient during morning
toreach early to office, evening return to home peacefully there are learned and superiority personnel like IAS, IPS and technical persons surrounded us who are all more efficient talented in
our present government body.we hope the kalaingar government can only function as efficient
as possible as talent as possible . finally we only plead the government and the government authorities would only initiate implement introduce uninterrupted un inconvenient to the public as
a whole

This is an incident which happened to me this aftrenoon...I boarded a bus to my house from my college...it was A47(avi056)...I boarded the bus at around 12:45...near saidapet, an empty mtc bus(spi 174) which was supposed to start from the saidapet bus stand just zoomed past the my bus...an accident was averted by a whisker... annoyed by this our bus driver went and stopped besides the empty mtc bus(it was all set to take a U turn near saidapet). Both the drivers had exchange of words...both the buses were so close to each that the mirror of our bus broke as the other driver turned his bus to take the U turn( not bothered to look where the other bus was)...this set things rolling!!!Angered by this our bus driver started the bus and eventually rammed the bus with the other empty mtc bus which was taking a U turn...then they had exchange of words again...this time the words were very vulgar!!! after the drama went ahead for another half an hour our bus finally continued its journey...I was really astonished at the careless attitude of our drivers...thats when I realised that we shouldn't be surprised to see so many damaged buses on the road...I wonder what the drivers would have done if the buses were there own rather the governments??????? It is high time that some amount of discipline was instilled in our drivers...they are not lords!!!

Respected Sir,

Sub: Complaint – Regarding – Route buses

____________________

We the association of Chinmaya nagar, submits the complaint regarding our bus route services. Our Area is one of developing areas in Chennai, Now it is vast developed because of the Koyembedu Market and Bus stand. Here more than 30, 000 to 40, 000 peoples were living; this kind of huge mass of peoples (Virugambakkam, Chinmaya Nagar, Elango Nagar, Natesa Nagar) in our society. We still lagging and unsatisfied with your Bus services.

We use to complaint about the inconvenience of the Bus service in our area. Many bus services has been stopped without prior notice and some buses has been diverted to another route. So, this become very inconvenience and uncomfortable to travel from one place to another place. Today, Our Government and Transport Corporation have taken more steps to solve our publics complaints regarding the facility of the bus services and the new routes have been introduced also.

But, still we didn’t receive any new routes or the bus service has not been increased. If our peoples want to travel from our place to Mylapore, we have to go by two to three buses. But, before we travel by one bus directly. I used to give the details regarding the changes and the services have been stop are as follows:


S.No Route Number Destination Departure Total Number

1. 5D Koymebedu Market Mylapore 2
2. 17T Koymebedu Market Broadway 1
3. 13C Koyembedu Market Triplicane 2
4. 49C Koyembedu Market Tiruvanmiyur 2
5. 15M Vadpalani IOC 2
6. 15H Iyyapanthangal Broadway 4
7. 115 Iyyapanthangal Redhills 2

These Bus route has been stopped without prior notice, these routes which was very frequent to us. Most of the peoples were working in KKNagar, Guindy, Adayar 5D and 49C which was very much useful to travel. 17T Route number is one bus service which is very much useful to go to Nungambakkam, DPI, ShastriBhavan, and Egmore. For this bus we have to travel by two buses from our place. 13C Route is very much used for to travel to Palmgrove, Royapettah, Beach and for Madras University, this which is very uneasy to travel nowadays to travel in 25G route because of Full rush, so you can make an arrangement to provide the Bus service again to our route. 15H and 115 Bus route service which is very useful to go to Alwarthirunagar, Valasarvakkam, Porur, Iyyapanthagal, Poonamalle from our place without any disturbance, But nowadays it is not easy to travel from our place because of rush from Vadapalani dippo to Porur, Iyyapanthangal, Poonamallee.

We again request you to provide and continue the Bus route again to our area.
The Bus service From Tiyagaraya Nagar to Tiruverkadu 27C has been diverted to MMDA Colony route, Most of our area Students were studying in Maduravoyal, Vanagaram Colleges, This bus service which was very much used to travel in quick processing and the bus service has gone for more than 20 years in our route, Suddenly it has been diverted to another route from last 4 years back, which gets us very much irritated and we complained in Vadpalani Dippo and T.Nagar Dippo but they didn’t responses our words. So, Sir, you have to take the action to continue our routes in the same way.

We are still lagging back in the transport facility, Koyembedu market and Koyembedu Bus stand and is on the way but we don’t have any transport in time to travel to bus stand immediately. We have to wait for long time to catch the area. By this we had lost many things in our privacy.




We request you to take action, and please introduce new routes in our areas which will be very much helpful to our peoples. Our Area (Virugambakkam, Elango Nagar, Natesa Nagar, and Chinmaya Nagar) Residential peoples request you again to consider our valuable message to your kind. Introduce the new routes in our area are Tambaram, Kovalam, Guduvanchery, Kelambakkam, Avadi, Perambur, Manali, Minjur, Tiruvottiyur, Ennore, Ponneri, Tiruninravur, Poonamallee etc., These area which our peoples were working and student’s were studying. Please consider our request sir.

At Present our Area Bus service are as follows:

S.no Route Number Destination Departure Total Number

1. 15F Vadapalani Broadway 6
2. M12B CMBT Foreshore Estate 1
3. M27 T.Nagar CMBT 10
4. M17A Koyembedu Broadway 2
5. M59A IOC Vadapalani 1

Only limited number of bus service has been running in our area. Consider our petition and kindly service for us.

Hi,

I have waited in Anna Nagar Blue Star Signal(Signal for me was RED) around 6am (passing from Santhi Colony to Jessie Moses School)and when my signal changed to GREEN, I tried to move or cross the road, at that time there was a bus crossed from Thirumangalam to Anna Nagar Rountana side(27H AVADI to TRIPLICANE) where the signal was in RED for them and there was a bus stop too before the signal but the bus was not stopped in that stopping and was not slowed too. When I cross the bus was tried to hit my bike and I have just turned the bike towards Hotel Saravana Bhavan if not I may be under the bus.(Distance of bus and my bike was around not more than 2 feet). When I stopped my bike (by luckily) the driver uses abuse words.He was not asked atleast sorry for that.Driver was not followed the traffic signal and not obeying the public or felt sorry for his mistake.

Regards,
Suresh

hello ... hai... this is kalpana, am working in IT company ...i need to travel around 3 to 5 km.. i just want to make complaint...im staying near Okiampet..No one is considering this area especially transport i mean to say..Buses are not halting in Okiampet . One or two buses will stop near that stop that too drivers and conductors are speaking very badly .This is not fair. Chennai is main city, all are not unique too...different people from different places are coming to chennai for their career..so respect each and every individual .

Please restore the Bus Route No B29N from Periyar Nagar to Velacherry from 7.45 a.m to 8.30 a.m. We are using the Bus for the last Six Years. It is a great inconvenience for Office goers commuting to KMC, Nungambakkam IOCL Office, DMS, T.Nagar & Gurunanak College. I request to do the needful.

i am a student and have classes at egmore montieth road. My house is at anna nagar east and the only bus from egmore to anna nagar east is 40A. I have noticed that this bus is very infrequent. at times i don't find that bus coming for hours together. This is creating a lot of inconvenience for passengers like me who return home at late hours like 8pm.

Hello Sir/Madam, There is no bus facility after 9 PM at Avadi to Tiruvallur route. But, the passengers count is more standing in the bus stand for buses as share auto's charge Rs.30 which is too huge than bus ticket price. Share auto's are charging more especially at night time knowing the fact, there's no bus facility. So, passengers are opting to share auto as no other options left to reach Thiruninravur or Thiruvallur.Bus route is : 572I request the MTC to provide bus facility atleast till 10:30 from Avadi to Thiruvallur.
