We reached Mysuru Bus stand at 18:35 hrs, bus was parked in Platform 3. The bus door was not opened up. 2 passengers the bus was waiitng, once they boarded the bus moved to Bengaluru platform. Fare is INR 350 to Bengaluru and is INR 30 more than ACC. Bus departed on time and exited Mysuru. Around 19:40 hours, we had our dinner carried home food.
Driving was smooth, next halt was for dinner at Channapatna Bus stand. Post dinner break, I sat in Conductor seat to interact with Driver-cum-conductor; Driver was Diploma Automobiles engineer! Drove the bus pretty well. We talked about whole lot of current affairs and KSRTC route operations from MYS. We headed to Bengaluru reached Majestic at 22:45 hrs. Flowers were loaded into the bus. Bus departed from Majestic after picking up Benagluru passengers.
Around 3 AM the bus had halted for Loo break and this time it was announced in the Public address system. So got up for Loo break. Surprisingly I saw NON AC Sleeper of Sri Durgamba Travels; came to know this is Bengaluru- Mantralaya - Raichur Service.
Bus reached Hotel Sandarshini, Jadcherla at 07:10 hours. Post break bus started & while exiting I captured the Tag axle turning pics.
Reached Hyderabad Afzalgunj at 08:55 hours. Bus speed locked at 80 kmph.

Today morning at Kukatpally Y Junction spotted the Kallada Travels Volvo B9R i-shift KA01AF5371 at 9:20 AM doing route Nagercoil to Hyderabad. Good timings 17 hours 1210+ km.
Had a question regarding the 1610 BNG-TRV KSRTC service. Planning to use this next Thursday from Bengaluru to Thrissur.

Has anyone used this service? Is it usually on time? Do they drop in Thrissur bus stand or drop off at mannuthy?

Came across pictures of Texcity Travels Volvos on the internet. The color scheme reminds me of older Kalladas. Any idea about this operator. Haven't seen them being discussed in this forum
