Hi
Last evening I was entrusted with the responsibility of choosing the right bus for a day trip from bangalore to mangalore. What caught my attention was all ACC and Airavats on this route are operated by Mangalore 2 depot!! Any reason why no Bangalore depot buses in the route? Also I found it tough to identify if it is a scania or a volvo from the layout. Any pointers on where the Madanayakanahalli boarding point is?? Is it the toll soon after NICE road junction?

Regarding buses from Depot you have got response from fellow members:
Your question on Madanayakanahalli boarding point - It is near Jindal prior to NICE Road.

Even the Bangalore 2 Depot Scanias' were services transferred because Kundapura Depot Volvo operations were closed and transferred to Mangalore. Then old Airavatha's were transferred to Mysore and Bangalore; so 5 Volvo services that were operated from Bangalore to Kundapura and beyond were transferred to Bangalore 2 depot from Mangalore 2 depot.
So Bangalore - Kundapura, Byndoor, Gangoli, Murudeshwara are operated by Bangalore 2 Depot.

If any one is chosing Bangalore2 depot ACC; these buses never reach on time to their destination. While returning to Bangalore they reach on time.

Travelling in V Kaveri Travels Multi Semi Sleeper from Hyd to Nellore. In Journey... Suprised it was the green Multi axle of Kaveri Travels that did Hyderabad to Mysore KA 01 A 6591.. Had a word with driver and was told that the partners in Kaveri Travels split and few Volvo and Scania that we’re under Kaveri were given to VKaveri. Naming will happen soon in all those buses given to VKaveri. This was the reason for services to stop during the AP election time as there was a dispute between the partners. Kaveri Celeste one pair has gone to VKaveri now
