volvo-belgaumBiswajith Baurah, freelance travel correspondent, gave us the information that a Volvo Low Floor bus has arrived at Belgaum/Belagavi depot -1.

The said bus is a VOLVO 8400 low floor air-conditioned bus, with 6-speed fully automatic gear system bearing a Rear-mounted, 6-cylinder,7-litre diesel VOLVO D7E 290 hp @ 2100 rpm.

This bus was originally with BMTC(Bengaluru City Bus) then the bus was shifted to Hubballi depot where it was plying the Hubballi-Dharwad route. After which the said bus was shifted to Belgaum/Belagavi depot from where it was sent to Chikkodi depot where it travelled the Chikkodi-Nippani route for a short time and now it is back to Belgaum/Belagavi depot-1.
Sources say the bus would be put on the Belgaum/Belagavi-Hubballi route.
Currently only one such bus has arrived.
Infact under the JNURUM 10 AC buses and 50 normal buses were alloted for Belgaum/Belagavi. But it seems only on papers.

  1. How stupid to have run this bus on Chikkodi – Nippani Route. Only a NERD can do it.

    Was this done to please the MP’s / MLA’s??

    Finally! Good news to have it for Belgaum – Hubbali route. mUch needed here!

    “UTTARAN” – BMTC’s VAYU VAJRA that plies to the airport. Cost Centre shifted to already low earning & earlier loss making NWKRTC.

  2. All these nice buses will not be for long as Union Transport Minister sitting in Delhi has decided to take over all the State Road Transport Corporations. The only profit making ones are KSRTC, BMTC and MSRTC. After the take over, Delhi will run it like the pathetic indian railways. And don’t forget there will be hindi imposition for free!!

    We should all protest against this anti-federal move by the union govt.
