A part from above, some “City-Services” have been inaugurated to render traveling facilities to the public/students living the surrounding places of the District Town in Cooch Behar, Jalpaiguri and Siliguri after may-2011. Along time demand / necessity of the corporation to establish a tyre retreading plant of its Own; has been inaugurated in Nov.-2011 at the proposed Central workshop complex of the corporation at New Cooch Behar. The vision of the corporation for coming days is to operate economic, efficient and properly Co-Ordinated transport services through the optimum utilization of its available sources and suitable assistance /guidance from related level.

Retreading is a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly way to breathe new life into worn tyres: The "worn-out" tread of the tyre is replaced with a brand-new one and this means that the tyre can be used again! Unfortunately, however, not every tyre can be retreaded. The requirements are: bullet The tyre was used correctly in its "first life", driven with the right air pressure and treated with care. bullet The tyre's frame, the carcass, is not seriously damaged. Retreading saves over 500,000 tonnes of crude oil in the EU every year. bullet Retreads save the user a great deal of money, since they will do about the same mileage as new tyres, but cost only 45-60% of the price of a comparable new tyre. bullet While retreading does not eliminate the need to dispose of old tyres, it does delay it considerably.
A wide range of tread types are available, allowing the optimum tread to be selected for the tyre application. bullet The comparatively low investment costs involved mean that decentralised, smaller production units can be operated. This means lower logistics costs and makes the operator more flexible and closer to his customers. bullet The precure retreading process is kind to the carcass, since vulcanisation temperatures are lower and put less strain on the rubber-metal bonds in the carcass. Heat build-up in the tyre, rolling resistance and other tyre properties are often easier to assess than with hot retreading. bullet With comparable tread geometries, the running performance of a precured retread is often better than a hot retread and the same as an equivalent new tyre.
