Volvo Buses Are Safer And Better Than “Saada” Buses

No Harassments from “Kili’s”, No bad words from Conductors of the red killers. Everything is now simple and easy. KSRTC’s new low floor AC Volvo buses are better and safer than any buses in Cochin.

“Crowded private buses in city are a nightmare for many. It is common to see women being sexually harassed in crowded buses even in core areas of the city, day or night. In addition to male passengers, conductors also behave indecently, like leaning on women when there is space otherwise.” Says Mrs Latha from Fort Kochi to KSRTCBlog.

“In most of the private buses, they will not enforce the rules on reserving seats for women, compounds problems. Often buses do not go till the last destination at night, forcing passengers to get down couple of stops before their destination”, she added.

Many womens now started preferring the Volvo buses introduced by Kerala state road transport corporation under the Jnnurm fundings. These buses are Safe, Easy and Affordable to travel in city.


A Part Of Save KSRTC Campaign From KSRTCBlog.Com


  1. thats certainly a good news to the beleaguered KSRTC! They should introduce more volvos in inter state routes also, without yielding to the private bus mafia(who has been holding the addition of more trains in bangalore-ekm line by bribes)…
    This is from a colleague of mine who stays at Puttur in Karnataka. He used to travel by KarSRTC but they were pathetically slow. Once he made a trip to puttur via Mangalore(BLR-KGD superfast) bus. He was impressed by the speed but was really disappointed by the shutter windows and backbreaking journey. He says this is the reason why most people in dakshina kannada region prefer the comfort of rajahamsa even though cost and running time is high. Hope KSRTC will look into this.

  2. KSRTC should introduce more TATA Marcopolo, as they are cheap and of good quality. VOLVO are expensive and they are running at a loss. I agree with Shankar, but these Volvos will eat away all the income generated by the other buses.
