I have been using different transport corporations during my stays and travels to different places. Here is a quick comparison between three transport corporations.
|1||Name of Business Entity||Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal||Metropolitan Transport Corporation||Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation|
|2||Hospitality of Crew||Normal. But if you do not have a proper change forget getting.||Disgusting. Even if you have change, the crew will take some cuts.||Amicable. Gives proper change and expect proper change (even after you get down. :) )|
|3||Helping in Routes||Good||Average||Excellent|
|4||Assist in Boarding||Stops buses when requested as much traffic conditions permit||Skips stops and goes near an auto-stand to stop||Stops buses when requested as much traffic conditions permit|
|5||Honesty of Ground Staff||Good||Good||Corrupt. Read IPaidABribe report here.|
|6||Follow up of Administration on Complaints||Zero||Average. Takes a week to respond||Extremely proactive. Regarding the corruption I reported to BMTC, this writer has talked to around half a dozen people ranging from PRO, Deputy Director and Sr. Inspector (Vigilance)|
|7||Bus Quality||Need to improve||Has good spectrum of buses like Semi low floor Deluxe, Volvo etc.||Vast spectrum of buses like Vajra, Vayu Vajra, Volvo etc.|
