Default Hyd-CBE Bus Service

A perfect example of what good roads can do to improving connectivity:

Kesineni has begun Multi-Axle Volvo service on the HYD-Coimbatore sector.Unimaginable till a few months back.Thanks due completely to the 4 laning of NH7 between HYD & BLR and between BLR & CBE leading to reduced travel times.

Route: HYD-HOSUR-NH7-SALEM-Avinashi-CBE.Total travel time announced is 16 hours.For more details check their website.

That's a welcome news!
Just checked the website and they have their services to my hometown too.
And the cost, is at par with AC Train fares.
Since the travel time is around 14-16 hours, are the B9Rs equipped with basic facilities like toilets, etc?

Volvo service is there to Mumbai since ages which takes around the same time. They dont have toilets in buses.

Btw, i never saw any buses sporting a toilet. Is it available by any private bus operator?

Coming to think of it, it will be better if it's not there! I am reminded of the horrible train journeys to Delhi when the seats are allocated near the loos!
Guess there won't be any takers for the seats near them in the bus too!
