This is bigger. The four wheeled version is no patch for the other rivals in that segment.

This appears bigger than those. I saw it in front of the dealer's place a couple of times, but it was a crowded place to get a ahot!

Default Volvo Tour Bus

Here is the one and only Volvo bus in Kerala to be operated as a tour bus. Its operated by Ganga Travels, Cochin. They owns the largest fleet of a/c buses in Kerala (tour segment). It is also the 3rd Volvo bus to have a Kerala Registration, after Coral Travels.

the new AL (air suspension) bus by WBSTC. the good part is, it's fitted with chrome interiors (we indians love chrome, don't we. well to be more precise, tin pattis). the bad part is, if you are wearing specs, it will fall off due to the massive vibration up front.

The new fully built Semi Low Floor Leyland buses launched by WBSTC seems realy good. I believe this is some standard design (front face) done by AL for its FB range. The front face design is a practically thaught one with grab handles, simple wiper, large grill, stylish headlights etc. The looks may not be modern, but very convenient to service & maintain. There are Stag & Lynx buses with similar design.
Better late than never, hope AL brings an entire range of fully built buses.

Would KeSRTC too have similar ones for the 240 buses order placed with AL? And it would have been nice to have some Tata Marcopolo also here!

Meanwhile Marcopolo buses based on Tata 709 / 909 platforms have been a huge success here espicially in school transport segment. Eventhough there is a huge potential for fullybuilt big buses, both AL & Tata has not made any significant effort to address this segment in kerala.

the bus looks good, but the engine vibration is too much. if you enter through the front gate you can feel it.
any idea what is the engine it is using?? or the tech. spec. of these buses.

But, aren't we talking about City buses here? I would be glad if you could let me know where the "luggage space" is, in a B7RLE.

Anyone know when the IVECO range of trucks will be launched in India from the TATA - FIAT partnership?

In the west, city buses are typically longer and have bigger seating capacity. The long distance buses are shorter and obviously have lesser seating capacity.

Looking at the pics of buses being posted here, it appears that the so called modern bus manufacturers are trying to replicate this stereotype in India.

But, IMHO, I feel that our crowded city roads require smaller buses, running at smaller intervals. No body is going to wait 10 minutes for a 15 minute ride, when personal transport will cover the same distance in 10 minutes.

Larger vehicles require longer intervals between successive vehicles, so that a passenger "load" builds up.

What do others say?
