We have long time back discussed about the route re-calibrations in Metropolitan Transport Corporation for route numbers B51 and V51 plying between T. Nagar and Tambaram. After a while, just got an opportunity today to travel the V51 route. I personally feel (again reemphasizing our previous discussion) that the new route makes the travel more pleasurable. I would like to outline this in the following reasons:
- The route that V51 takes currently is Tambaram - Kovilambakkam - Madipakkam - Velacherry - T. Nagar. Since this route is a bit long route and the bus has comfortable legspace, faster engines, comfortable deluxe seats and clear view windows, it makes and gives the passengers a comfortable travel luxury as if travelling in the luxury bus. The charges are still less compared to taking a private share auto service, where you are squeezed like one in a big tomato bag.
- The re-calibration of route also greatly helps the commuters in Adambakkam who are now connected with GST Road, Nanganallur and Madipakkam.
