A KSRTC Superfast on a Rollercoaster Ride!

Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) Superfast bus RNK 447 of Poovar depot in Trivandrum district careens around a sharp bend at high speed between Koothattukulam and Muvattupuzha on the MC Road in Kerala, on its run from Poovar to Thrissur. This particular stretch of road is filled with almost continuous sharp twists and turns making it it a challenging road to drive on but KSRTC drivers make it look easy. KSRTC Superfasts are known for their speed and vicious, unforgiving, fast and furious driving style which also makes them a hot favorite among travelers. The body seems to be about to rip itself off the chassis!

KSRTC Superfast on a Long Journey…

A brilliantly liveried Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) Superfast bus on its way to Thiruvananthapuram seen near Aluva in the suburbs of Ernakulam on a bright morning. These distinctly liveried red-and-yellow buses are the preferred mode of transportation in Kerala as they have only very limited stops and are notorious for their high speeds. The road is the National Highway 47.

Front-Row Seat View from Inside a KSRTC Superfast

Kerala State Road Transport Corporation’s (KSRTC) Superfast bus RSC 587 of Adoor rumbles along the MC Road between Kaladi and Ankamali. This photo was taken inside the bus through the front windshield over the driver’s shoulder, where the front-row seat view through the plate glass window shows the commanding driver’s position, exceptionally good road and the unruly traffic on it, where everyone drives wherever they please and blame others. The front-row is also the best place to enjoy a KSRTC Superfast ride as these buses are notorious for their speed and maneuvering which is unfortunately a necessity. This Central workshops-built bus with registration no KL15 A 45  is also one if KSRTC’s newest.
