    East west and Nandana have long been operating from shimoga to mumbai. We were using them during our college days. I do not know there situation now. They were both quite punctual and getting good loads. After the induction of vrl and srs i do not know how the patronage is affected.

    Vaishnavi travels, Sri Lakshmi Travels and SES Travels. All were Non-Ac buses

    I had travelled in Sri Lakhsmi Travels from Mangalore to Mumbai.

    Infact I was also to travel in SES Travels from Mumbai to Mangalore but due to some problem in the bus National Travels had provided the spare bus. This was many years back when Honnavara bridge was under repair....old memories:rock:

    Nice photos...reminded me of my journies earlier with CPT & other non-Ac buses, when Volvos were not there. There were may non-AC services which used to operate earlier on Mumbai - Mangalore route like:

    1. Ganesh Travels (Not operating now)
    2. Mahableshwara Travels (Not operating now)
    3. Canara Nandana (Not operating now)
    4. CPC Travels (Not operating now)
    5. Ideal Travels (Not operating now on Mumbai- Mangalore, but now on Mangalore - Bangalore route or so)
    6. Nandana Travels (Not operating now on Mumbai- Mangalore, but now on Mumbai - Shimoga route or so)
    7. Manish Travels (Not operating now on Mumbai- Mangalore, but now on other route)
    8. Vaishavi Travels (was there for short time)
    9. Sri Lakshmi Travels (was there for short time)

    Any other operators you can share if I have missed them..
    Canara Travels, Ghatge Patil, Jaykumar Patil, Prasanna Travels, are few others who are not operating on Mangalore-Mumbai route anymore. Additionally, there was Mehboob travels that used to do Ernakulam - Mumbai and Kasargod - Mumbai, both via Mangalore that have stopped operating about 15 yrs back.

    Does anyone have any Pictures of the old buses i believe during the early and late 80's. It will be a refreshing moments when we as kids used to travel in Ideal Travels. I think it was one of the best travels i used to hear as a kid. Always wanted to go by that bus :)
