[Resolved]  TNSTC — SETC (mortuary bus service)

Address:Chennai, Tamil Nadu

I am a frequent traveler from chennai to bangalore on business needs.
I have seen many people complaints about SETC bus service about broken side door glass,bedbugs,broken seat,rude conductors & drivers,improper timings,etc.,
As I need to travel frequently I got adjusted to this nonsense.
But on 26/7/2012,I happened to travel from bangalore to coimbatore,I usually prefer KSRTC as their service is far better than SETC.
But i coultn't get reservation,and end up with this mortuary bus (SETC,really). The bus looked new and even seat covers are not teared off,so I thought its ok to give a try,as I have to be in coimbatore next day. only 25 seats are occupied and bus started from shanthi nagar bus stand and when it reached near madivala,some smoke come from engine with a huge sound,all o[censored]s feared and moved towards front door (only one exit door).
driver tried to stop the bus, but both the gear and brakes failed,he could not stop the bus.conductor jumped off the bus while we are arguing with driver.driver too tried to jump off the bus,but some passenger got hold of him and asked to run it over the street divider to make the bus stop.we are nearing the madivala signal and the red light is on.if the bus moves at this speed,it can definitely kill all the bikers,auto rickshaws and car standing in the signal.

Driver turned the bus to run over the street divider and the bus broke the divider and run over it and lying over the divider.After a waiting of one hour,they arranged for alternate bus.

I heard some people complained about it in the SETC depot,but its no use,they wont change.

They are fit only to do strikes not to work.I suggest TN government to change all SETC buses as load truck or lorries.its fit for that only not to carry people.

simply SETC buses are mortuary buses,If you have other bus service available, dont even consider SETC.
