The Next PIL against BBMP- Streetlights or the lack of it

Dear Prajegale,

There have been numerous reports in the media about how poorly lit Bangalore is as a city and how this has actually encouraged anti social activities. Some of the prominent roads where you could find dysfunctional streetlights are:

Lack of Parking Facilities for public transport users in RR Nagar

A problem that I face everyday is lack of safe parking places in Rajajrajeshwari Nagar. I live in Krishna Garden, where there is no last mile connectivity to speak of. I use the public transport as riding through Bangalore's roads have become a pain. 

The Sorry state of affairs at KNDV Station

Commuter Rail

I visited the Krishna Deva Raya Station in Vijayanagar on Sunday. What is striking here is the absolute lack of infrastructure! Some issues with this station are:

Dear Prajagale,

It may be a good idea to hold the cycle day event held at layouts and localities in Bangalore, which are in close proximity to rail lines and railway stations. A lot of us who have grown up hearing the noise of the chugging trains relate to the concept of a suburban railway in comparison to others.

Kengeri to Bidadi - Infra Issues will the MEMU Help?

Commuter Rail

I had to travel to Bidadi on Saturday on some official work. I took the train from Kengeri to Bidadi station. The journey took me 15 minutes on the push pull train. I had the following observations:

Where is the Funding Mr. Minister for CRS?

Commuter Rail


There has been renewed hope among some circles in Bangalore after the Union Railway Minister Mr. Sadananda Gowda made a mention in the Rail Budget about the much delayed Suburban Rail System. He spoke of a survey when a survey has already been done by RITES. 

24*7 Transport Service to all Major Railways Stations and TTMCs



The idea of a 24*7 service Bus Service to all railway major stations and bus stands across the length and breadth of the city has been mooted quite a few times.
