We are living in 21st century, technology has grown by leaps & bounds in this age. Today it is not possible for us to spend a single day or stay a single minute without any technological innovation. Smart phones invention has lead to your office, your wallet, your social presence, your music, your television all in one small device. If you do not make changes with the technology, you become outdated.

Gone are the days when bus journeys were looked down upon & the condition of bus used to be bad. Today there are sleek, clean, comfortable buses for the journey after the introduction of advanced buses by companies such as Volvo, Mercedes, Scania, Man along with our Indian cos Tata & Ashok Leyland.Technology has played an important role in this turnaround.

Indian Bus sector which is a 15,000 cr industry today has also made huge process in terms of technological innovations. In the Indian traveller's mindset bus travel is picking up, as is evident from the fact that the railways had to stop the Shatabdi service between Mumbai and Pune for a while because of the growing popularity of the Volvo bus service on the expressway linking the two cities. Ahmedabad –Rajkot have 39 train connections on an average  & 60 bus connections in a day. This shows the preference of bus over other modes of transport.

Today’s bus come equipped with charging facility, WIFI to keep you connected on the go, Buses have facility to watch live television along with pre- loaded DVD, they come fitted with toilets, food is served on board. Sleeper buses are also part of innovation in the sector.

New technologically advanced multi axle buses have helped reduce the travel time between Intercities by 15% .Bus travel normally used to be carried out for journeys in the 6-10 hours range. This mindset is also changing with the introduction of multi axle automatic transmission sleeper & semi sleeper buses. Take for instance Ahmedabad to Bangalore by train takes 36 hours, while the same journey in bus is carried out in 24-26 hours.

Power steering equipped bus with automatic transmissions helps the bus operators in improving their mileage & in reducing the effort put in by the driver along with providing comfortable travel to the passengers.
