<>We were in situation of boarding any bus as we got tired. Suddenly, the 3.33 bus came.
<>We boarded the bus in Lal Bagh at 4.00pm with empty seats. I felt happy but not for long time. The conductor promised that the bus reached within 3.33 hrs. from electronic city.
<>As it was weekend day, the passengers rushed to the bus at Madiwala stop. Finally the bus was full even with standing passengers.
<>The conductor got down at Silk board after closing the stage. The bus started with a cruising speed 75kmph on fly over service
<>Too much traffic up to Attibele the bus went slowly. After crossing the border. We travelled in the heavy rain with thunderstorms.
<>This is the first new-bie seeing with Pneumatic doors. This was my first impression and experience.
<>It crossed Hosur at 5.35pm with heavy rain.
<>Between Krishnagiri and Hosur the ride was awesome. The bus roared at a max speed of 96kmph.We overtook two TNSTC , one SETC, a local private speed and KSRTC old corona bus but KSRTC gave a revenge and overtook us. I felt sad.
<>It crossed Krishnagiri at 6.30pm.
<>Finally the bus stopped in a good refreshment stall for bio break and tea break at 6.45pm in Kannamangalam. It was a decent place. We ate snacks. Super taste. This was my second impression.
<>The bus started at 7pm and crossed Dharmapuri at 7.27pm.
<>Again Toll gate traffic in Thoppur. One passenger requested to stop the bus for Nature call. The driver stopped for him.
