OPR.TASK.6 INTRODUCTION OF A NEW EXPRESS ROUTE “ BHIMAVARAM


– RAJAMUNDRY” WITH 6 BUSES.

Recently it is proposed by regional office to shift 2 bhadrachalam schedules to narsapuram


depot. This saves 2 buses at Bhimavaram. Due to replacement of hire buses on route vja(kklr), 2
buses will be saved. 2 buses can be saved by cancelling 2 RTC schedules operating on thirupathi
route. As the performance of hire service of thirupathi is not at all encouraging, it is proposed to
cancel the service duly diverting hire buses to existing RTC timings. This saves 2 RTC buses. So
a net saving of 6 buses. With the 6 saved 6 express buses, it is proposed to operate 15 round
trips of bvrm-rajamundry via Palakollu.

It is proposed to give 2hrs 25 min running time with 5 minutes halt at ravulapalem.

Case has to be sent in this regard. Expected EPK is 16.00 and CPK is 15.75. proposed economics
for 2008-09 is here under.

OPR.TASK.7 INTRODUCTION OF A NEW EXPRESS ROUTE “BHIMAVARAM –


JANAGAREDDY GUDEM” via ELURU.

The distance between Bhimavaram and Eluru is 65kms. The distance between Eluru to
jangareddy gudem is 55kms. A combination of 2 ordinary routes will make good potential
express route with a route length of 120kms. Operation of 12 trips with 6 buses will give 1 hour
frequency.

It is proposed to give 3hrs running time and in Eluru town, bus touches old bus station first and
then to new bus station and goes to jangareddy gudem via ashok nagar to patronage new route
course.

It is proposed to operate 3 buses each by Bhimavaram and jangareddygudem depots.

OPR.TASK.8 INTRODUCTION OF BHIMAVARAM –KHAMMAM EXPRESS
SERVICE ON RECIPROCAL BASIS.

We are going to save one express bus on route Bhimavaram-vijayawada(kld) after replacing 4
buses with hire buses. Now it is proposed to operate this bus to a new route “Bhimavaram –
khammam” via Tadepalligudem, janagreddy gudem, aswaraopeta, and sathupally. The vehicle
utilization would be 476 kms.

It is proposed to operate this schedule on reciprocal basis with khammam depot as it would be
convenient to commuters in having a fast return journey. A note file to this effect will be
processed.

OPR.TASK.11 INTRODUCTION OF NON STOP SERVICES ON BHIMAVARAM –


PALAKOL ROUTE.

Scrutiny of star documents was conducted taking 3 peak days and 3 slack days in the month of
January 2008 for all palakol shuttle services. The details of trip wise number of passengers at
each stage and direct tickets between Bhimavaram and palakol are counted. It is observed that
nearly 15 passengers are direct passengers in all trips. It comes to nearly 945 direct passengers
in one direction. The number of direct passengers will be more than this number as other
services like Eluru-palakol, Eluru-narsapuram, Bhimavaram-amalapuram will take some direct
passengers. So it is assumed that nearly 1200 direct passengers are available in one direction.
So it is a fit case for introduction of a non stop service.

1. It is proposed to introduce a non-stop route with 4 mini hire buses.


2. Each mini hire bus will operate 9 round trips with a vu of 414 kms.
3. On both sides current booking will be opened with 4 duties per day.
4. It is proposed to collect express fare of rs.11.00 instead of 10.00 ordinary fare.
5. The running time would be 35 minutes as against existing 55min running time for
ordinary services.
6. Intially a flow of 25mintues is proposed with a starting time at 6.00 and ending trip at
20.35 at Bhimavaram.

To this effect a note file has been processed vide, o1/535(12)/2008-bvrmdtd-26/2/08. The
possible economics was worked out and the details are mentioned as whole in operational task
no.10.

OPR.TASK.12 FORMATION OF A NEW P.V. ROUTE “BHIMAVARAM-


MACHILIPATNAM” via LOSARI.

Several representation from public and public representatives are there requesting to operate
machilipatnam via Losari , Bantumilli, after construction of bridge on upputeru near pallipalem.
At present Bhimavaram is operating schedules upto pallipalem and machilipatnam depot
operates up to pallipalem even after a bridge. Now the scenario changed and route survey was
conducted, established that there is a great need for direct bus to machilipatnam. It reduces
Rs.7/- fare to direct commuter from Bhimavaram to machilipatnam.

14
It is decided to save 1 bus in machilipatnam, 1 bus in gudiwada, and one bus in rajamundry
route to operate 3 buses in this newly formed route. With a reciprocal operation from
machilipatnam depot, it will ensure 12 round trips with 1 hour frequency.

It is proposed to operate 3 buses as single crew duties as 4 singles will give 304 kms. Route
length is 76kms.
Possible economics is given here under.

palakol. This gives only 306 vehicle utilization. now it is proposed to operate all 5 single crew
schedules as either rest off duties or change over duties. This gives more trips in Eluru route
and one bus can be saved.

OPR.TASK.14 MAKE ONE PEDALANKA SCHEDULE AS SINGLE CREW DUTY.

In pedalanka route 3 buses are under opearation. One bus is going to be replaced with a hire bus
in the peak season of 2008-09. Out of the 2 RTC buses, one bus is proposed for cancellation. The
lone bus is proposed for conversion to single crew duty duly eliminating kalidindi trip which
makes 3 round trips to pedalanka. A convenient single crew schedule with kms of 276 can be
formed with eligible O.T.
The expected profitability is given in the table.

OPR.TASK.15 PROCESS NOTE FOR CHANGING HIRE BUS SCHEDULE IN
GUDIWADA TO MAKE 3 ROUND TRIPS IN THAT ROUTE.

2 Hire buses are under operation on the route gudivada with a VU of 354. Whereas RTC bus is
operating 6 singles to gudivada(66kms route length), makes 396 kms. In order to give a
schedule for 354 kms, 2 trips to palkollu and 2 trips to gudiwada was made resulting in
clash/bunching in both the routes.

Now it is proposed to process a note file to competent authority to change hire bus kms from
354 to 396 kms duly lowering the slab rate of hire bus payment.

This ensures, 6 trips with 2 buses, instead of existing 7 trips with 3 buses makes a saving of one
bus.

OPR.TASK.17 MAKE BOSE COLONY – SINGLE CREW.

Bose colony is a single bus route and its EPK only 10.60(includes bus pass amount). The
schedule makes 6 round trips to the village. It unnecessary to operate 6 trips. It is proposed to
cancel one trip and make the schedule, single crew. The VU would become 250.

OPR.TASK.18 MAKE DONAGA PINDI – SINGLE CREW.

Dongapindi is a single bus route which has, 12 singles with a VU of 252kms. It is proposed to
give only 10singles and make the schedule as single crew duty.

OPR.TASK.19 MAKE CHINAMILLI PADU – SINGLE CREW.

10 single trips are operating to chinamillipadu. It’s EPK at the end of jan 2008 is 11.84 and
yielded a loss of 7.61 rs per km. the route does not need 5 round trips of operation. So it is
proposed to make it a single crew and operate only 4 trips to the village.

It is expected a reduction in loss of Rs2.60 lakhs due to change in crew duties and curtailing
lowest yielding trip.

OPR.TASK.20 MAKE MODI –SINGLE CREW.

Modi is another single bus route , in which 5 round trips are under operation. Its EPK is 11.55
and the total loss up to jan 2008 is Rs.6.88laks. It is proposed to operate this schedule as single
crew duly reducing one round trip making 248kms. Eligible OT will be given.

OPR.TASK.21 ADD ONE ROUND TRIP TO NARSAPURAM –MATSYA PURI


SCHEDULES TO MAKE 3/3 DAY OUTS.

At present Narsapuram via Matsyapuri route is being operated by both Bhimavaram and
Narsapuram depot with 4 buses each. Each bus is operating 5 round trips. The route length is
30kms and running time is 80min. it is opined that excess running time is given and needs to be
revised.

It is proposed to operate the day out schedules as change-over with 3 trips per duty. This will
save one bus for each depot. Reduction of loss can be viewed in the table no:.

OPR.TASK.22 PLACEMENT OF TRAFFIC LOADERS ON ALL TRAFFIC


GENERATING POINTS.

To achieve the desired EPK levels in the important routes, placement of traffic loaders is very
much essential. At present we have 2 loaders in new bus station and one in old bus station. 15

FINAL PICTURE:

On implementation of all the above operational tasks, it is estimated that a profit of


Rs.52.03lakhs is expected. Its route wise split up is shown in the above table in page no:19.
Following assumptions are made in calculating the figures.

1. All the cost parameters are kept constant.(hire bus rates, hsd price, hsd kmpl, tyre cpk
etc,.)
2. Projections regarding extra operation, buspass sales, cat cards, jhts, subidy were made
based on the 10 months real performance of 2007-08. No growth is added to these
earnings.
3. Basic fares are kept constant.
4. All mechanical parameters are kept constant on par with the 2007-08 performance.
5. All tasks are expected to be implemented w.e.f from 1st april 2008. The effects of all tasks
were taken into account w.e.f 1st april 2008.
6. In some routes, EPK increase is expected, which is equivalent to hire bus performance
on that route. In some other routes, cancellation of few un remunerative trips would
improve route EPK.
