Please take up the BMTC stage wise fare

I feel it is a totally different style of calculating ticket fares and stages.

I would like to share / explain with an example -

Tin factory to Kasturi Nagar on ORR is Rs 6/- ( for 1KM) next stop which is just 1 km is Ramamurthy Nagar ORR junction is costs Rs 9/- (2 kms) and to Goraguntepalya  ( ORR Tumkur Road junction) is costs Rs 21/- ( 18-20 kms).


This fixed stage is wrong, we need to have a moving stage calculation i feel where in for a fixed no of kms a fixed amount should be charged.

Shajit.. As we are aware common man's voice is heard less by BMTC or voice is ignored due to own internal issues of BMTC. So people have joined to creat a forum in facebook

May be the group's voice heard better than individual. All the best

As said earlier, the groups

As said earlier, the groups voice is always heard. Govt. reacts always based on number of people who protest (and how much is damage is done for public property).

The same BMTC while being dumb on feedbacks/inputs help given in a systematic manner, has reacted with official response by bending to public strength show by BBPV mentioned above.


A press release says :

  • Black Day observed across 9 bus-stands in Bangalore City and nearby areas

  • Protest outside BMTC office in Shantinagar bus-stand

  • BMTC promises to fix a meeting by Aug 12th to discuss all out-standing issues

  • BMTC agrees to start mini-bus service to areas where regular buses cannot be used


August 5th , BMTCs bus-day was observed as Black-day today by members of Bangalore Bus Prayaanikara Vedike and a few thousand commuters across nine bus-stands today – Majestic, K.R.Market, Hebbal, Vidyaranyapura, Shantinagar, Yeshwantpur, Neelasandra, Doddaballapur and Devanahalli.  Given that the Transport Minister had expressed his inability to reduce fares any further, we decided to have a signature campaign addressed to the Chief Minister, asking for reduction of fares and other demands.  Signatures were collected from commuters at all bus-stands. In the space of a few hours, more than 3000 signatures were collected from angry commuters.

Full report is here

I had booked a complaint on Rs. 4 tickets for Sr. Citizens not being issued. I got a response as below-

"Your complaint will be looked into"
