Travellling by city buses
May 23, 2007 9:22am CST
I have seen Most Asian countries face lot of problem in transportation in cities.I live in a metro city in India where it is rather difficult specially in the morning and evening to take these buses to reach our destination.It will be packed with crowd and very difficult to get in and out of the bus during peak hours which is a himalayan task. There is a minister of transport who had to look into these affairs all public grievances too which needs to be considered and resolved.With the growing number of population i think the number of buses for transportation to public is very much limited which is the main cause for this over flooded buses.Atleast 1-2 accidents could be read in newspaper as people fall from those buses and sometimes they loss their lives too. There are companies which manufacture these buses here but i dont understand why our government is not taking any steps rather they introduce lavish buses with high fares which is not affordable by middle class people.Many cities in India face this problem. I would like to know the transportation facility specially buses... in other countries.

As i live in mumbai the situation here is one of the worst .The number of people is rising day by day & the number of buses remains the same.It really gets tough in summers.My husband has to travel daily to his office in bus & has to suffer daily.Actually our government never thinks about us middle class people.

It's such a pity to hear an Indian saying this. In Sri Lanka most of the buses are TATA made in India. If by any chance you are confident that you are going to hell, then first come over here and travel in our buses. Then once you go to hell you'll find that place much better. Just like over there the transport system is mismanaged. We have buses belonging to the government as well as the private sector. The private buses overload and you are not sure when they will reach the destination.
