An illustrious assembly including Chief Minister V. S. Achuthanandan, Union External Affairs Minister Dr Shashi Tharoor, Ports Minister M Vijayakumar, LSG Minister Paloli Mohammedkutty and Transport Minister Jose Thettayil introduce the Volvo 8400 to Kerala.

The only city in Kerala to have a public transport system goes truely high-tech.



The CM, Tharoor and the other Ministers took a ride on the Volvo, probably the only time we will see a city bus get Z-grade security, including pilots and escorts, lol!!!

The construction base of the VHK consortium sub-contracted by Punj Lloyd to complete TCRIP is getting ready at Anamugham on the Bypass.

The erection of the massive hot mix plant is nearing completion, the concrete batching plant is already operational.

Work is now all set to pick up pace as the consortium's heavy machinery arrives. And soon our Volvos will have a lot more world-class roads to zip over.

Ajaypp's First ride on the Volvo

Photo courtesy & narration: Ajaypp


Yeap, actions are better than words and even better than pictures. So rather than yacking about or clicking pics of the new darlings of the capital city, the Volvo 8400s, yours truely took a few rides on them to see how right the supporters and cynics are.

Here are some of the pictures of the trips taken from Kumarapuram to Technopark and back on Volvos, JNT 1 and JNT 2.

Leaving Kumarapuram at 1341 Hrs on JNT 1; bus is about 60% full even at this off-peak time.

The staff are very polite and helpful; professional. The conductor comes to the passengers with his ETM.

JNT 1 turns into India's largest IT park, getting looks not just from the techies but even from foreign personnel.

Zooming through the gate, the Volvo leaves all others in its wake. Meanwhile, a Technopark security guard has boarded to ensure that no unauthorised personnel alight within the campus.

I also saw that piling had commenced at the site of Big Infra's I project, which is right opposite Ginger. The bus was going too fast to click the site. Maybe next time....

The bus was full by the time we got to Medical College and folks were standing as we sped towards Kumarapuram where I alighted after an awesome journey.

Expressbuzz reports,

Techies launch e-campaign for low-floor buses


The luxury buses launched jointly by the KSRTC and the LSG Department have already got fans from among the techies.

Software professionals in Technopark who have been struggling to find a parking lot inside the campus have come forward to promote the new bus service that connects Technopark with other major points in the city.

Techies argue that the ride in Volvo buses will also be cheaper than their company transport. Most companies charge around Rs 1,000 monthly as transportation cost. The Volvo costs you Rs 18 for a trip to Ulloor. 18 x 22 (working days) x 2 (trips daily) = Rs 792 a month. That is, it’s better than any contracted transport, and you can choose your own timing, and you pay-per-use only!.
