Hyderabad -Ernakulam buses donot take this route . Those buses take Coimbatore route.

The Salabham which you saw is new Bangalore - Trivanthapuram service

Evacay's buses were repossessed by its original owner, forcing them to suspend their services from Bangalore. Two pairs of KL registered Volvos and 1 pair of Benz is operational at the moment - working Chennai-Trivandrum (Benz operates only till Nagercoil/Marthandam) and Chennai-Pathanamthitta

What about the pair of Volvo which were running in CHN - BLR route??

VRL has withdrawn Mumbai - HYD, Bangalore - Chennai service(So complete shutdown in TN). Everyone is expanding there fleet size and introducing new routes. But this crazy VRL is withdrawn(ing) in many routes. Recently had been to Anand Rao circle VRL stop. Almost all KA 25 C xxxx series buses become old. Don know when they will come up with new buses and routes. Any body has idea regarding business plan or strategies of VRL? Anybody visited them recently ?
