BMTC has launched three new bus routes. These are along the IT corridor. They are made to serve the neighborhoods of Sarjapur road. The MLA named NA Haris, MLC called Rizwan Arshad, and Bellaundur corporate Asha Suresh gave a new service.
Two routes run into the Electronic City. One is clockwise, and the other is in the anticlockwise direction. These cover the neighborhoods of Kasavanahalli, Doaddakannalli, Haralur, and the HSR Layout. There is also a third route. It functions as a loop to Carmelaram Railway Station, covering Doddakannalli, Kadubisanahalli, Bellandur Gate, and Kaikondrahalli.
Reside ts had been asking for a connectivity route for a long. They wanted BMTC services here. Ten thousand people participated in the Save Bellaundur campaign last October. It was a silent protest. It was demanding better public transport in Bellaundur. The drives also submitted a petition to T M Vijay Bhaskar. He is the state's chief secretary.
BMTC plans to implement an intelligent transportation system in Bangalore. It is done to attract riders and increase revenue. They will be incorporating digitalization this year. They will introduce AFCS or Automatic Fare Collection System. Passengers will be able to track buses in real time. The bus stops will get a display board in the airport.
Buses are also supposed to have GPS systems. After covid, BMTC has been struggling. Passengers are shifting to private transport. They are expecting a difference of 5 lacs.
If you live in Hoodi, you no longer have to take your car. You can go to Varthur Kodi in Whitefielsusing BMTC. Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Company's (BMTC) new service will connect Whitefield's inefficient local loops. It has a new Chakra service that will reduce the road's burden.
