    nice to see gannavaram depot getting marcos , the design is simple and neat, but large window area without curtains will be nightmare in hot summer and a disturbance in night with road side lights. then again they could have gone for 12 m model. all in all a good product atleast nice to look at.

    I really appreciate the red stickering on the back , given the maintenance standards of srtcs they can be lifesavers for many

    Neat interiors and wider seats will make travel a pleasure.

    Really apt and appreciable design for the APSRTC Super Lux class. This is the way things should be done. Unlike the fools from my own backyard - KeSRTC.

    Yeah Charmi! Even I felt the same. The design looks very simple and neat. And bus also looks light. Unlike other buses.

    I felt same for the windows. They should be filmed otherwise it will be nightmare in hot sun. Nighttime all the vechicle's lighting in the opposite direction will be very disturbing for passengers. But this can be done by depot itself.

    As you said the reflective sticker behind the bus is very important, it helps when bus breaks down on highways during nights.

    I think this should be a test design from Marcopolo. TATA should have given this bus as a sample. But driver was complaining able the mileage. Since the bus front design is flat, the air is acting against the bus while catching speed, this is decreasing the mileage. The other super luxury designs have little curve structure which pushes the air upwards and side ways easily. That's the driver theory.

    Anytime :). And 1+1+1 configuration is best seating in any bus! Wide seats, ample leg space and what else do we need.

    Thing will improve bro! Don't worry :)

    These buses look better then the current Super Luxury tht APSRTC has. Have to wait and see how they maintain these buses.

    I dont this is a test bus cause test buses are not registered with APSRTC. You can see the registration it has AP 16 Z which clearly states that it is registered with APSRTC. I came to this conclusion because when APSRTC & KSRTC where testing Isuzu's they where not registered under their organisations.

    Looks good, though different from the Marcopolos we have running in Delhi. Of course these are city buses, and that too CNG.
