Steep reduction of Bus Services by Metropolitan Transport Corporation (Chennai)

Of late citing reduced earnings, the transport undertaking of Government of Tamil Nadu operating in Chennai (Metropolitan Transport Corporation) has been steadfast in taking active measures in curtailing a lot of services causing much discomfort to the passengers.

At times even a 30 KM stretch is serviced by a single bus (both up and down) something similar to remote villages. We have raised this issue with MTC for a few services and would like to summarize their responses for the benefit of everyone.

Bus Service Request Sent Response Received
PP 51 I used to see a bus called PP51 plying between Tambaram East/Padhuvancheri/Chitlapakkam and Broadway/Parrys till a few months ago. But these days the bus does not seem to be operating. Can you help me with any updated schedules of the route and its current plying route. Currently I was expecting it at Kamarajapuram bus stand and Chromepet. At present one service is operating in Rt.No.PP51 (Tambaram East- Broadway) for the convenience of passengers Further suitable instructions have been given to the concerned Branch Manager to operate the route no.PP51 as per the time schedule without any curtailment.Lr.No.175/16416/TRg3/MTC/2019.Dated.19.03.2019
