BMTC's encouraging mini bus talk - good going Mr Parwez


Amidst all the press that BMTC is getting recently, one thing that caught attention was talk of mini buses, shuttles and feeder routes. As we all know, feeder plans, and solid execution of first/last mile connects can help increase usage of BMTC as well as (future) metro.

Here are the bytes I have picked up (read in print, so don't have links handy, will search and add later)

Save women commuters from sexual harassment in BMTC buses - suggestion


Women commuters are the silent sufferers of certain harassments being meted out to them during their journeys in BMTC buses.

Wonder what happened to TTMCs


Hi, I was wondering what happened to TTMC's or Bus stations. I stay near K R Puram. I feel there should be a Bus Stand or TTMC in KR Puram so that it can be well connected to various parts of city. For e.g If they introduce a BMTC bus from K R Puram to Whitefield via Bhattarahalli or via Budigere Cross. Half the people would prefer this since this less crowded. comment guidelines
