Rose-Hill Transport Takes Service To New Levels

With its two brand new Yutong semif-floor buses which are according to Mr. Sharma structurally stronger and provide a more comfortable and secure ride. For only Rs6 more. They come with a camera and will set RHT back by Rs4 million a piece. Kind of happy to see this given what I said five years ago.

In the meantime the NTC is buying buses via a tender. Shouldn't we scrap this process and empower the CNT to buy buses that make sense?

RHT makes me think of Emtel: first to introduce innovative (for some, it's a mere copy-paste from abroad, but still) concepts, but falls short of reaping a merited mass approval. Quel dommage!
Otherwise, I just hope that the RHT drivers wake up once in a while to remember that snail-paced driving, especially on the motorway, can be as dangerous as anything else.

Do their drivers drive way too slow? How slow are we talking here? And at what approximate times?

@gugo: The next time you come across a tortoise-like RHT bus on the motorway, do us all a favour. Call their hotline once you're off the steering wheel.
P.S Hotline is displayed at the back of most RHT buses.

CNT copying RHT: two Yutong buses will be tried for a month -- almost 18 months after the Soreze accident -- before potentially ordering at least 100 of them within a year.

Another innovation: chef on the bus will provide you with a breakfast, lunch or a snack. They should try having farata wraps with satini koko or rugay for Rs15 (maybe they do already). Or dipin gato pima. There are a number of places where you can get good quality versions of those.

In the meantime I understand that Segolene Royal has already grabbed her magic adjustable wrench put on her plumbing overall and is waiting at CDG to catch the next flight to Mauritius to fix our water problems.
