This is the first time KSRTC is launching multi-axle Volvo AC sleeper buses. KSRTC operates Ambaari in the sleeper-coach category, and the introduction of Volvo AC sleeper buses is expected to offer a comfortable journey to long-distance passengers. In fact, KSRTC had sought suggestions from the public for a brand name for the multi-axle Volvo AC buses.
However, KSRTC started the Ambaari Dream Class service without any fanfare due to the election model code of conduct. KSRTC officials said Ambaari Dream Class fares are cheaper than those of its private counterparts, but costlier than Ambaari Corona AC sleeper buses. KSRTC officials said they have received an overwhelming response for the Ambaari Dream Class services despite lack of publicity.
