BMTC's Trunk & Feeder services

10 users have liked.

BMTC has at long last announced commencement of the Trunk & Feeder Services (check here), which was what was envisaged when the Big-10 services were started. Prajagalu, including me have been asking for it from long - check this. Well, better late than never.

But, what is not understood is the need for the separate services to Electronic City and Chandapura, when you are providing a service every 5 minutes to Attibele. Anyone can enlighten me on this?

The success of the scheme will depend largely on the efficient operation of the feeder services. From BMTC, that's going to be a big ask. Perhaps it's time the government considered bringing in reputed private operators here.

Feeder system not working efficiently for Reach 1 Metro

16 users have liked.

Co-ordination between BMRCL and BMTC seems to be quiet less. BMTC has announced huge trunk feeder system for Hosur Road. If similar measures are started for the reach 1 Metro between ITPL and Byappanahalli and Bellandur / Sarjapur Road on ORR to Byappanahalli, usage of Metro would increase. Similarly from corporation circle and Majestic / Mantri Mall ( Mantri Mall since reach 3 Metro ends there and it is going to be operational by November).

We all know that it takes only 14 minutes between Byappanahalli to MG Road. This would save lot of time for a commuter although multiple hops.
