MSRTC to start bus services to Bengaluru & Panjim

 The two new routes to be operated by the Ashwamedh and Shivneri brand of buses.

   Wednesday 20-Apr-2011  | Mumbai

The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) is in the process of finalising details for starting the two new routes to Bengaluru & Goa by Volvo buses as per a report in DNA.

The Ashwamedh brand, which was launched in mid-March this year with just one route (Mumbai-Pune), will now have a Mumbai-Pune-Bengaluru route. It has a more comfortable range of AC Volvos known as Jumbo Multi-axel Volvo buses which are longer and have more comfortable sitting arrangement. They have more powerful air-conditioning than those that run under the Shivneri brand.

Considering the rising commuter demand in the peak summer season, a fresh AC Volvo route under Shivneri will also be started between Mumbai Central and Panjim. A spokesperson for the MSRTC said that details like the tariff structure, number of stoppages, etc. for the new routes under both the brands are being worked out. “For the services to Bengaluru, it could take 8 to 10 days for the details to come out; and for Goa, about 10 to 15 days,” said the MSRTC spokesperson. “You can expect the services to roll out after a fortnight.”
