Ride on the Special OMR Bus, organized by Doshi Housing

Highlights important aspects of OMR

As a part of Madras Week Celebrations, Doshi Housing, the well known builder from Chennai, is launching “OMR OMG Express”, a free AC Bus Service for people employed on the IT corridor of OMR and for those who are interested in knowing the historical importance of OMR. The Service will be operational for one month Starting from August 24 (Thursay).

The Free A/C bus shuttle service will operate from Madhya Kailash to Shollinganllur (OMR) with 5 stops in between – Tidel Park, SRP Tools, Perungudi, Thoraipakkam and Karapakkam. Around 4 trips will be made in a day from Aavin Dairy, Sholingnallur to Madhya Kailash and 4 return trips will be made from Madhya Kailash to Aavin Dairy, Sholingnallur. The trips will be run 7 days a week and in an hourly frequency. The first trip will start at 9.30 AM from Aavin Dairy, Sholingnallur. Even non-working tourists can take advantage of this special offering by Doshi Housing.
 Mr. Mehul Doshi, Director, Doshi Housing said, “The development of areas around OMR has been tremendous after the advent of IT companies. The idea of organizing this free bus trip is to create awareness about the History and development of OMR and surrounding areas, which has somehow not been recognized so far. A booklet containing interesting facets about OMR and an audio presentation, put together by renowned Chennai Historian Mr. V. Sriram, will be made available to the passengers to enjoy and understand the importance of OMR. The bus will be flagged off from Madhya Kailash at 10.30 am on 24th August.”

Mr. V. Sriram, Historian said, "In all the hype about it being the IT ExpressWay, what is forgotten is that OMR has been a knowledge centre of Chennai almost since Independence. It has been home to several low profile centres of excellence. It also boasts of centuries-old history in some of the villages that it connects, all of which are now parts of Chennai."
