Taking Bus Fanning to a New Level - Bus For Us Foundation Adopts MSRTC Buses

The Bus For Us Foundation team. 

Bus For Us Foundation, an NGO set up by MSRTC Bus fans have given a new meaning to bus fanning.

The group has adopted two premium class MSRTC buses on the Mumbai-Kolhapur route for two month. 

The services have started from yesterday, January 26, 2021.

The NGO will oversee all operations of the two buses - right from booking to maintenance and by the end of the the tenure they will compile a (Standard Operational Procedure) that will be handed over to MSRTC. 

According to Rohit Dhende, President, Bus For Us Foundation, the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) lacked a solid framework to operate buses from the premium segment.

"While luxury services, air conditioned seater and sleeper MSRTC buses, were continuously introduced to the fleet, the Corporation lacked a proper framework to operate these buses. As a result, it failed to be a profitable venture and the buses suffered inadequate maintenance," Dhende told Coach Builders India. 

This created a slew of problems and passengers had to face extreme inconvenience - right from reservation glitches, mid-journey vehicle breakdowns to buses not reaching their destination on time. 

The NGO intended to offer a working solution to this problem and the MSRTC promptly agreed. 

The Corporation allowed it to adopt two buses on the Mumbai Central - Kolhapur Route.

Moreover, BusForUS volunteers will travel with the buses to map consumer feedback as well as offer offer on-spot resolution to issues faced. 

"Based on the feedback that we receive in these two months, we will prepare a SOP and hand it over to MSRTC. The corporation can incorporate these SOPs to facilitate smoother operations of MSRTC premium bus services," Dhende adds.
