We have been observing that for the past few months the route number 70C from Chennai CMBT to Mambakkam via E Tambaram had not been operating. We requested clarification from the transport department vide GOVTN/E/2017/00403 as below.

Dear Team,

There is either a steep deficiency of bus frequency 70C (CMBT – Mambakkam) via Tambaram. Most of the current 70C terminate at Tambaram West. There used to a Mambakkam route extending from Tambaram through Camp Road. These days the bus is not operating.

Kindly re-operate this bus and increase the frequency of the same please.

The response from transport corporation on  27 April 2017 is as below.

Due to poor patronage the Route No.70C Extn (CMBT – Mambakkam) route was modifited and it is not feasible to restore again. Also due to operational constraint, it is not feasible to extend the route from tamabaram to Mambakkam. In metropolitan city operation, it is not possible to connect each and every place by direct services. Lr.No.120/22050/TRG3/MTC/2017. Dated.19.04.2017.
