[Resolved]  TNSTC — indifferent attitude of buscrew

I had the misfortune of travelling by a state transport bus TN 32 N2961 from tiruvannamalai to tambaram (tickect no 53904 for Rs.55). the bus left tiruvannamalai at 1.00pm and just before olakkur stopped at a wayside hotel"aachi mess" for lunch; I donot understand the logic behind the buscrew stopping the bus at a wayside hotel whereas they could have finished the lunch at tvmalai itself; the bus was there for about 35mts in the scorching sun; normally express busses to tvmalai donot ostop at wayside hotels; but nowadays it has become a regular feature; earlier the time taken to reach tambaram to tvmalai was three hours and now a days it is more than three and half hours; and to add insult to injury the prices at the wayside hotels are exorbitant to say the least; one litre mineral water bottle costs 17/- rupee(original cost 12 or 13 rupees) and one bottle of soft drink is Rs.30/-(origisucnal cost 20 rupees). I am giving the prices of items charged at the Achi mess. I donot understand what pleasure or consideration the crew get by stopping the bus at such hotels and subject the passengers to such mindless fleecing.
grateful if the authorities concerned advise the buscrew to not to stop the bus (esp express buses) and subject the passengers to such tortures.

thankiing you

dear TNSTC officers,
now a days you are displaying "EXPRESS" board in some (ALL) buses and collectting extra fare.
but those buses are half the speed of private buses. some passangers are taking money from home only for ordinary fare. they are really getting trouble. Due to the disel & spare parts rates this type of techniqes (EXP, PP, NON STOP) you are handelling. simply announce the rise of fares to puplic.Don't cheat them for a long term...
