Chennai MTC Bus Routes

:: Chennai MTC Bus Routes ::

How long have you waited for bus without knowing the exact bus number and route ?  How many times have thought like "Why don't we have a handy booklet for MTC buses which can serve as ready reckoner while we travel ?" . Thanks to the query raised by Saritha mam in "Find A Chennai Trusted Service" group in facebook which has ignited me write this post. 

I just gone through various sites and collected the data and sorted it out based on the bus depots, so that it can be easy for the readers to search. Also , As Saritha mam pointed out, there should be some Non-App based compilation is needed so that people can easily find it and make use of it. 

It took almost a month for me to compile these data. I want to post it as a complete text, but since the data was huge and crosses maximum limit of 1,000 words, I couldn't post it here as complete text. I have embedded the PDF version of the same below and I am sure, it will open in almost all the browsers. You can use find (Ctrl + f) options too to know about particular depot or bus number. You can download the PDF file by clicking here. 

And as suggested by Saritha mam in her post, It would be great if these routes can be published as Handy Booklet. I am thinking on those line and will come up with an idea for the same very soon. I must thank Sridhar Venkatraman sir for his patience in clarifying my doubts while compiling the data.  Kindly have a look at it and let me know the feedback.
