APSTRC better than many other state RTCs

I donot know how many state road transport corporation services people on this forum have seen, but I have been to Delhi, UP, Bombay, and West Bengal.

I find that APSRTC is many times better than the services provided by any other states. Yes, there are some problems like delay in arriving etc, but the quality of services, number wise and facilities wise is far superior than any other state.

I am presently in West Bengal. Getting into a bus in Kolkata is as good as getting into HELL!!! There are mainly private operated buses and the condition of buses is real poor. They stop wherever you want, but stay there till all seats are fill!!! The seats are real congested, the engines make real headaching sound, and the drivers are real rash.

In UP, too there domination is my private operators. In addition there is a heavy competition with tempos (7 seater autos) and jeeps. The servies of buses is real bad. Ones I had to travel from Kanpur to Jhansi by a private tourist bus (Sadly, the government serive is totally unpredictable). There was no space in side the buss to keep any bags, so we had to put the bags in the "dicky". I was charged Rs.10 per bag, and this is in addition to the fare from Kanpur ot Jhansi.

In both UP as well as West Bengal, there is no meaning of bus complexes. Even if there is a complex, it is in real poor state in terms of facilities. There will be absolutely no on to guide you about the buses etc. The bus stand will look more like a muddy road.

In Mumbai, though there are good buses, no one prefers, due to very high fare (as compared to the train fare) and the heavy traffic and traffic jams.

The kind of facilities I say at Vijayawada bus complex are uncomparable to any outside AP. We have 24hr tiffin center, dorm, medical shops, cloak room, telephone services, book shops, and even an ice-cream palor. In addition, we have computerized counters too.

It was only after I came out of Andhra Pradesh, that I realized how good the transport facilities in AP are. I am not saying that there are problems with our APSRTC, but I definetly feel that it better than any other service I have seen.

If someone has experience abt the serives in Karnataka, Tamilnadu and Kerala, please post.

According to rules auto's can carry maximum 5 people. But many auto's carry 8\9 people at a time. Anta loadto pote bolta pade avakasalu ekkuva.
