Volvo B9R

The indra bus is old one may be 3 to 4 yrs old.
APSRTC has got 3 electric buses on lease from olectra badged. The one in the morning may be an old trail bus and rest are new.


Strange to see a fairly new bus in such condition poorly maintained - rear and side glasses are broken, and with shoddy repairs, instead of glass, they pasted metal sheets painted black at the rear and side windows.

This bus had been retrofitted with old school headlamps. Had seen quite a few Indra buses like this.

KSRTC Ambaari Dream Class
Mysuru - Secunderabad Service
Route 1900MYSSEC

I had travelled in this bus last year and this bus then had dinner break at Ramnagara between 8:30-9 PM. It used to reach Majestic at 10-45-10:50 PM.

The bus started from Mysore Bus stand by 7:10 PM and had pickup at Mandya and other place, because of new Expressway opened partially could not identify as the Pickup was on the Road.

The bus reached Majestic at 10 PM and depart is scheduled at 11 PM. Solid an hour to kill time at Majestic.

The bus departed at 11:10 PM and reached for Loo break just after Gooty around 3:50 AM.
The bus reached Kurnool around 5:15 AM.
Bus reached Jadcherla at 6:55 AM and bus started back at 7:15 AM and had no stop till MGBS and reached at 8:35 AM, dropped & proceeded to JBS.
The bus reached 15 minutes early as Traffic was lesser.

Here are 2 pics captured during Morning break at Jadcherla:


Heard from Crew there is Grapevine that 2000MYSHYD could be replaced with 9600 Sleeper.

USB Charging point was not working. Deteriorated condition.

Frankly I am not convinced KSRTC Branding 9600 Sleeper with separate name. This is similar to Scania being named ADC and then combining as ACC at later date.

Both Ambaari Dream Class and Ambaari Utsav are 40 seater sleeper, through Ambari Utsav is under Power it solves the duty similar to Ambaari Dream Class with bus speed locked to 80 kmph.
