This is the project to look at newly opened Metro stations and analyze as-is situation on Metro-BMTC connectivity. A report would be the outcome of this project. The report is intended to help in advocacy efforts towards the expectations of public transport commuters such as:

  • BMTC along with BMRC should get committed to provide reliable last mile connectivity
  • Both agencies need to study the catchment area. For ex. work places like Bagmane Tech Park/ RMZ infinity have a concentration of prospective Metro users.
  • Promoting usage of shuttles as well as Metro, well defined stops for Metro pick-ups, with display of schedules.
  • Staggered schedules of shuttles. Higher during peak hours and leaner in non-peak.

Please join if you would participate in project activities like visits to Metro stations, meetings with BMTC or BMRC to understand their Feeder plans, and finally, contribute to writing the report based on all our observations (whats there, what more needs to be done, etc).

Why Commuter Rail as feeder service left out

Unless  easy connectivity with SWR stations at Bayiappanahalli ( where intecity trains, & Few EMU shuttel service ) will really bring feeder to METRO from ITPL, KR Purma & Bangarpet.

Same thing will happen at Yesvantpur station & City Station from Tumkur side.  At Nayndhanhalli station on Mysore road will act as Feeder from Mysore side. 

This should be planned on the lines of New Delhi station integration with DMRC & Airport Express line.

BMTC will do the short distance feeder services.

I feel BMTC, BMRC & SWR should  do the committ the reliable services with good integration.
