BRTS for Bangalore: feasibility, suggestions


I was reading through some of the BRTS all over the world both failed and success stories. I wanted to check how feasible to implement this in Bangalore and is there any other alternative to improve the existing system. The major reasons of BRTS failure are:

Mid day pass, and age for senior citizen pass in BMTC


Kudos to KSRTC for age reduction - now decreased fare by 25% for senior citizens for 60 yrs from 65 earlier.

But still in BMTC daily pass is still 50 for senior citizen even after having proof.

They accept only BMTC id card. Why should we need one more card if we already have KSRTC id card /voter's id/govt id card ?

I have always wondered why nothing has been done about  commercial passenger(or goods) carrying vehicles with regard to serious accidents and the reckless practices they indulge in.

Chengddu makes bus travel free, BMTC costlier than two wheelers!


Our BMTC costlier than 2 -wheelar and cars....

Can we propose to have ticket rates as 5,10,15,20,25 to avoid change problem and corruption ?

Like 5Rs for first 3 stage, then 10 for 4-8, 15 for 9-13, 20 for 14-18 and so on......
