Hats off to BMTC for introducing Busday and especially the Volvo services! i took the bus today to try out. But, faced problems.

I live in Kaggadasapura area. Need to come to HAL Museum first. Then take a bus towards Marathahalli. Then take another bus from Marathahalli towards Outer ring road-Sarjapur. This really makes me think many a times before taking the bus.

a) Could have been better if there is direct service from HAL airport towards ORR-Sarjapur road. Hope BMTC takes note of this and introduce the same by next Busday.

b) Also, from HAL airport or HAL museum, need to take multiple transports or Autos (who usually charges double the meter amount, IF meter is working) to reach GM palya, Malleshpalya, Vignannagar, Kaggadasapura. Considering the not so wide roads in these areas, if BMTC introduces mini buses to cover the following route:

HAL airport - BEML gate - GM palya - Malleshpalya - Vignannagar - Basavanangar - HAL museum

Frequency of buses could be every 15 mins (during peak hours) and every half hour after that, would be nice.

hope the BMTC authorities take notice.

thanks

Sam

HAL - ORR Connectivity

Hello Sam,

Your suggestion of a HAL road - ORR bus route is very valid. I have also made the same suggestion here:

The Vijayanagara-Vijayanagara circular route (S-1 and S-2) should be made non-circular. This route can be terminated at Belandur (running via HAL Airport and right-turn at Marathahalli).

The Belandur --> Agara --> CSB --> Vijayanagara route is anyway well-catered by the 500x series and C-1 series of buses.

regards,

Ashok

 There are buses from HAL to ORR. Num 333W runs from majestic to Wipro on Sarjapur Road via Old Airport Road, Marathahalli, Ringroad. Frequency may not be very high.

 S-1 and S-2 doesnt follow route of 500K series between marathahalli and Vijayanagar but go via Jayanagar and chamrajpet and hence connects jayanagar and marathahalli being the only route to do so.
