Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) unveils its new class of luxury buses, a fleet of Scania Metrolink buses branded “Garuda Maharaja – The Chariot of Kerala”. The earlier fleet of flagshio Volvo B9R multi-axle buses have been rebranded “Garuda King Class”, and the few Volvo B7Rs are now “KSRTC Sanchari”. The Scania features LED destination boards in addition to all the usual luxury-bus goodies. Here the inaugural bus sits majestically reflecting off the setting sun, blazingly dominating the foreground while everything else fades into the background, showing off the vertically raked front end of the bus, compared to the wedge-shaped front of the Volvo. Never mind the rubble of the new under-construction bus station-cum-garage at the KSRTC bus station in Kottayam.
