Two BMTC Volvo 8400 335E city services on the Bangalore Old Airport Road HAL Main Gate signal junction. The bus on the left was stopped while the other one was running. Managed to capture the scene while they were exactly abreast of each other from another 335E which was stuck in traffic on the opposite side. Volvo route 335E runs Majestic Bus station – MG Road – Domlur – HAL – Marathahalli – KTPO – ITPL – Kadugodi.

One among BMTC’s new batch of brand new Volvo 8400s running as the Majestic – Kadugodi 335E service seen at Rajeshwari Theater bus stop, Old Airport Road. Green colored Volvos are usually used as Airport services branded “Vayu Vajra” while red colored buses are used for city services. This Vayu Vajra, however, seems to be on special service.
Another shot of a BMTC Multi-Axle city bus, the Volvo 7400XL in Bangalore seen on Old Airport Road. It is plying on the route 335E Kadugodi – ITPL – Kundalahalli – Marathahalli – HAL – Murugeshpalya – Domlur – Lifestyle/MG Road – Sholay Circle/Residency Road – Richmond Circle – Corporation – Majestic (KBS).

The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation’s (BMTC) flagship, the Volvo 7400XL Multi-Axle city bus on duty as the KBS (Majestic) – Kadugodi – KBS (Majestic) route no 335E, seen at night. The Volvo 7400XL is the latest, most high-profile yet and prized possession of the BMTC, which is light years ahead of others when it comes to (city) transport organizations in India. With the addition of the 7400XL to its fleet, BMTC makes Bangalore the first city in India to have multi-axle city transport!
