I believe i have the average height of an average Indian female. Now, standing inside a bus (regular BMTC), can be pretty painful if your hand just reaches when you need to hold and you got to painfully stretch your hand and stand!
I shifted from my 2-wheeler to opt for the comfy ride of the Volvo from work to home, (also due to stress & hyper-tension caused by the honkers and the undisciplined traffic!) but Bravo! to the traffic cops and volunteers, they are doing us a big favor by managing the ever-growing mammoth traffic in Bangalore.
The Volvos are much more comfortable with AC & radio to drown the Bangalore traffic. Also sometimes they play Tom & Jerry cartoons over & over again on the display during the peak hours.
My post just sounds like a Volvo advt promotion post but believe me it just took the load off traveling on my own.
