The transport department was planning to strengthen its existing fleet of 6,000 buses to cater to the increasing demand for public transport in the wake of initiatives like the Bus Day, transport minister R Ashoka said on Monday.

A survey had established that the number of autos, taxis, cars and motorbikes on roads had come down due to the efficient mass transportation services being provided by BMTC, he claimed.

“More than 50% employees in the IT industry use mass transport,” he said. “To make buses more popular, we are introducing internet and television facilities in Volvo buses going to BIAL as a pilot project,” he said.

They should deploy these new buses for METRO feeder services in city and feeder services for Commuter Rail at Suburbs like Devanhalli, Anekal,  Belandur, Nelamangala, Yelahanka and Whitefield comment guidelines
