College of Engineering,Trivandrum, has nine buses including one Mini Bus. There are seven buses plying to city routes covering locations Karamana, Vattiyoorkavu, Peroorkada, Vellayambalam, Sasthamangalam, Manacaud, East Fort, Thirumala, Pettah, Medical college, etc. Another two buses is specifically for students and staffs from Attingal and Karette. Around 600 students and staff of this college are using the college bus facility as of now. Among the nine buses, only three buses were purchased after the year 2000. One bus was purchased during the year 1967 and three buses were purchased in 1980’s.
As per the recent green tribunal verdict on diesel vehicles, diesel buses of life more than 10 years have to be banned although this order is now stayed by the honourable High Court of Kerala. If this order is implemented, regular college bus service will be affected which in turn will affect the academics of this college. Considering this urgent situation, the college PTA has consented to purchase a four cylinder bus for the college. The price of a six cylinder BS IV bus will be around 28 lakhs and a four cylinder BS IV bus with 49 seater will be around 23 lakhs.
Hence, on behalf of the staff and students of this college, we request the alumni to contribute generously to purchase atleast one new bus so that the old one could be replaced.
