Many Low Floor Buses in Bad Condition; still running on Jaipur Roads


Every 4th low floor bus running on Jaipur roads from the 400 JCTSL low floor buses in Jaipur is in bad condition. Around 20 buses from these 7 year old low floor buses in bad condition, are not even in working condition and are parked uselessly at the depo. Rest 80 bad conditioned buses have been repaired a bit and made to run on the Jaipur roads like Messengers of Death every day.

Other than overloaded trucks and other overloaded vehicles, these bad conditioned low floor buses are becoming a reason for accidents and other mishaps on the Jaipur roads. Rather than the carelessness of the driver, the reason behind mishaps due to low floor buses in Jaipur is the technical faults in these vehicles.

Some common technical issues in these low floor buses include brake failure, issues in the engine, disrupted gears, torn, exhausted tyres, broken wind screens and other maintenance issues. Due to these maintenance and technical issues, the low floor buses either give up mid way and get jammed on roads or they get into accidents and end up injuring people.

All of these JCTSL low floor buses have a Fitness Certificate but their condition says a total different story. All papers showing regular maintenance also mean nothing. They are just documents that do not hold much truth.

Who's responsible?

Buses that have been running for 8 years or have completed 6 lakh kilometers are considered unfit for running any more. Around 100 low floor buses will complete 8 years in May-June in the coming year - 2018. JCTSL will need to buy 100 new low floor buses to replace them.
