Volvo buses were introduced by the BMTC as a comfortable mode of transport. There were no other luxury buses, but now there’s competition, the marcopolo bus(made by TATA). I think they are cheaper than the volvo buses, thats why I see a lot more marcopolo’s than volvo’s. But I dislike them, they are very noisy and emit a lot of heat, especially if you are in a 2 wheeler behind them in a traffic stop.

Volvo’s are so quiet, you can hardly hear them until they pass by. They also look more refined and of a better quality than the other one. They look good on the road. If bangalore wants to be an international city, then it should start buying up volvo’s. Thats the international standard.
