Presenting Kerala State Road Transport Corporation’s (KSRTC) first ever Volvo B9R Multi Axle buses! 10 of these were ordered and delivered. This photo was taken at Marathahalli in Bangalore amidst a huge traffic jam on their maiden journey from their birthplace at the Volvo factory in Hosakote near Bangalore to the KSRTC HQ in Thiruvananthapuram for registration and induction. KSRTC (Kerala) was Volvo’s launch customer in India but later fell behind thanks to nepotism and corruption. Hopefully this will be a new dawn!
