Metro RailPublic Transport

Naveen presented a good summary of his meeting with BMRCL

One thing that came of that was the DPR for the phase II was in the final stages and would be out soon..there are already questions on

Yaara Appana Mane Gantu?

Everything else

or 'Yaara Appana hesaralli Saala?'

The above line depicts it better 'Whose loan is it anyways'..we all know BBMP/Govt coffers are empty and they are living on loans..but what are they doing about it? Nothing..all they are doing is :

Volvo's or Marcopolo's?

BusPublic Transport

JnNurm funds are being used and announcements being made by BMTC about launching new busses on Blr roads..everything is being done in a hurry..

They are saying about 200 of Marcopolo's will be ordered..are they worth it? They cost 20-30% less than the Volvo's but have been found lacking in refinements which are basic at that cost!

1. The engines are way too noisy...even on normal roads..the bus struggles to start and passengers in  the bus can hear the loud engine..even people in the traffic arround the bus can hear the loud noise!

2. The AC is not efficient..there are reports of passengers sweating inside the bus!

3.The automatic doors have issues and transmission too

With all the issues, is it really  worth going for these busses..

On the other hand KSRTC low floor bus design has been found commendable by the centre

Should we just go for such busses than the Marcopolos?

Metro - try get it right the first time!

Metro RailPublic Transport

 As we know there is an 'Indian' way of doing everything!

We never seem to follow lanes or queues..even our RJ's for traffic updates use words like 'nuggisokke aagthillava'! (are you not able to squeeze throuhg?)
