Volvo buses with food and toilet facilities launched in Bangalore

If you are waiting to travel in a bus which will offer you food and toilet facilities without having to get down at designated stops, then here it is!

The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has launched such services in select buses. Six multi-axle Volvo buses will have chemical toilets and two of them will also have in-house pantry services.

The Airavat buses with toilet facilities will now be called Airavat Superia and those with both toilets and inhouse pantry will be named Airavat Bliss. KSRTC had announced such an initiative on April 20 to make long-distance travelling a world-class experience for its passengers , particularly for elderly and those with kids.

KSRTC officials said that the toilets will be cleaned by maintenance staff of KSRTC and the food provided will be outsourced to a private vendor.

"We will later outsource the entire pantry service to the vendor, depending on the demand. Also, buses which ply for more than 10 hours, like the ones to Mumbai and Pune, will have a full-fledged in-house pantry service," KSRTC officials said.

Of the six buses to have such facilities are the ones bound for Chennai and Tirupati.
