Bus shot


It isn’t unusual to see a public transport vehicle peppered with holes at its rear. And though the naked eye may lead you to believe so, these aren’t bullet piercings earned by the bus as it bravely drove escaping prisoners of war out of enemy territory.

They are holes drilled very deliberately to hang advertisement boards. As also an appropriate advertisement of the callousness of Government employees towards public property.

    Good picture of our beautiful MTC bus. (it was not long ago that the erstwhile PTC was considered one of the best bus services in the country in terms of efficiency and maintenance…) Nowadays, who cares about such things, not even the MTC staff themselves. Let us hope taht the same fate does not befall the new “DELUXE” buses… well, actually I did see one of the the “LOW FLOOR” buses with an ad board in the back.

    PTC/DATC/MTC buses have always been notorious for overcrowding and moving at a tilt angle of 45 degrees to the left, besides being poorly maintained. Its a different story that all govt owned public transport services are running on loss in the country, which is why they are in shoddy condition

    i think the best of public buses of the country were , and still is B.E.S.T. of mumbai
