Just to bring classic example how BMTC loots people.
Place: Agara junction to SIlk board
Distance: 3.3 kms Fare 12 rs (normal bus)
Stage: 2 stages
As per rule we need to have stage for every 2 kms but here we have 3 stage just to loot people.
Stops to Distance total
Agara Agaara Depo 900m 900m
Depo HSR BDA complex 900m 1800m
BDA complex Fern Hill 900m 2700m //Stage 1
Fern Hill Silk Board 500m 3300m //Stage 2 <-- Which is not needed
For total distance of 3.3 km we need to pay Rs 12 which comes to 3.64/km
Which is way too costly for users.
For 2 poeple in one way :
Rate in BMTC= Rs 24
Same in 2 wheelar = Rs 5 ( 50 km for Rs 72 /litre for 3.5 km)
Same in 4 wheelar = Rs 17 ( 15 km for 72/ltr for 3.5 km)
Hence BMTC is 5 times costlier and 1.5 times costlier than private vehicle
