Cycles on KSRTC bus!

52 users have liked.

There is a frequent question on how to take cycles on KSRTC bus. Ofcourse it is quite a task to carry cycles on express and other service bus because they need to be loaded onto the roof of the bus.

However its a breeze to put cycles into volvo bus. But a frequent question is what is the cost of transportation. Some conductors play traunt, charging bribe etc

So to get more details made a visit to the bus stand to get the details, so here is how it works officially.

A regular cycle is 3 units in luggage terms for KSRTC

It costs 15/- for each unit  to be transported per stage

For example, Mysore is 1 stage from Blr, so transporting a cycle to Mysore will cost 3X15 = 45/-

So the important part is to know how many stages(luggage) it is to your destination and do the simple math.

If the conductor him!



passenger stage calculations..this times its correct!

Was at the majestic bus stand today and they made me run from pillar to post to get information. The outcome was that I could find a little more about the mathematics of carrying cycles on bus:

Lets take bangalore-madikeri as an example. The distance is 265 Kms

and its 5Kms per passenger stage and that makes the distance 265/5 =  53 stages

and per unit price per stage is 50 paise, so that makes it 26.5 Rs per unit

A cycle is typically 3 units and that makes it 80 Rs to Madikeri!

Please take a ticket for the luggage.

The only catch is that if the luggage carrier is full already, the conductor  holds the right to deny putting your bike inside the bus.
