Life Cycle Of An AC Air Bus In KSRTC – Story Of RR 213

Aanavandi a private blog developed and maintained by Sujith Bhakthan & Team, with the goal of providing information about various public transport services in Kerala, including Kerala RTC services.

RR 213 was an AC Air Bus service which was plying on Thrissur – Bangalore sector and the bus was holding by Thrissur depot. Later the regular break down and AC failure of these buses forced KSRTC to withdraw all the AC services from the fleet.

Then they converted these buses to Super Fast services by removing the AC and replaced the glasses with typical KSRTC’s Shutter. Push back seats has kept unchanged in some buses.

These buses were not at all reliable for long trips and KSRTC was running these buses in Thrissur – Thiruvananthapuram, Palakkad – Thiruvananthapuram sector. And after the unsuccessful trips of these Super Fast Globus Air Buses, They started converting these buses to Venad/Ordinary buses.

Finally, RR 213 As a Venad bus with Karunagappally depot doing some local trip.

And i think that, RR 213 is the first Globus Air bus which has been converted to an Ordinary service.

  6. It’s gross misuse and lack of proper maintenance that proved fatal for Globus. It’s reflected in the current state of our 3 Garuda Volvo B7Rs too. At least the Globuses were not as expensive as the Volvos.

  7. There is NO problem with TATA Buses.. only Our Kerala RTC maintainance is very poor.. and many of them are blaming TATA.. which makes no SENSE..APSRTC and MSRTC uses maximum of TATA buses… they it runs wihtout any problem,,
