  1. It is good to see the two new buses . Will KSRTC now buy another 10 for each town, as it seems that only one is not enough.
    Do you know who built the bodies?

  2. Body is built by Antony Garage, Mumbai. They are pioneers in double decker body building in India. This is built in the same model as the BEST DD’s plying in Mumbai.

  3. Good to hear that the initiative is taken. Let all the cables come underground to have more double decker buses
