Actually I had totally forgotten the August Bus Day untill this morning I received an email from my nephew who lives in Scranton, Pennsylvania, US.


Hi Chacha,

Here is the video which describes the Success of Bus Day in Bangalore. But it is a shame that it does not mention the actual idea was conceived at but the mission is accomplished.
Thanks and Regards,

"...Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, a senior BMTC official said: “We will deploy additional buses to cater to the growing demand on all the corridors leading to the IT hubs of the city. We will concentrate on the seven corridors that include Old Madras Road, Old Airport Road, Sarjapur Road, Hosur Road, Bannerghatta Road, Tumkur Road and Mysore Road.

Over 500 additional buses are planned to be deployed on these corridors that will cater to office goers.” “Just like Whitefield Saarige, we are in the process of finalising other locations where last mile connectivity can be provided to passengers via buses.

The destination oriented loop services are aimed at providing hassle-free commuting and will minimise the possibility of passengers being fleeced,” the official said..."

Thats the same case here in Bangalore too!! The interest levels have dropped significantly, not just amongst the media and public, but amongst the 'promotors' too... You know what I am hinting at???

Dont know what the video documents... I havent been able to download/watch it despite many attempts!!

Now -a-days no one seems to remember the Bus Days, it has become just routine.

I see a small announcement in the papers that Sep. 4th is Bus Day.
