Mr Pasha has given us time on Dec 22 at 3 PM to discuss Bus Priority System project. The meeting will be focused on BPS or at maximum current status of BRTS projects at BMTC.

I can take along maximum 5 folks with me. Please leave a comment if you want to join. BPS project members will be preferred.

We could go with following agenda for the meeting:

  • Explain the need for BPS, ask him for BMTC's current plans for speeding up buses on corridors
  • BMTC's observations from past/current BRTS efforts
    • ORR, with BDA, we know this is on
    • Anything else, with BMTC?
  • Give him a list of data requests, and get his support for more such technical/data requests in future.

PS: And last, we will also extend him a formal invitation from Praja side to attend the upcoming Workshop on BPS/BRTS for Bangalore at CiSTUP, IISc. Watch other posts for details on upcoming Mobilicity workshops.

BMTC meeting

I would like the following discussed-

1. During the Public Transpoprt meeting convened by Volvo recently Mr. Pasha, MD- BMTC replied to my query that meetings of commuters representatives are being held. But on further enquiry it is not clear when these are held.  We may request BMTC to involve in these meetings.

2. Feeder services and last mile connectivity- BMTC have again announced such services to Metro stations. However there are still no proper feeder services to the main Railway stations. They may be asked to start these services soon.



will not cover these

Pathy sir, this meeting is only to talk Bus Priority System / BRTS with BMTC. Please save those questions for separate interactions with BMTC.

Any BPS/BRTS specific questions anyone?

My questions

Conflicts with a meeting in the office, cant make it, so here goes
  1. Is there a DPR/Detailed plan for the ORR BRTS they can share with us? If not who is advising them on the technical details?
  2. What is the probable start of implementation considering the state of the ORR stretch currently?
  3. What is their view on signal priority for Big 10 routes?
  4. Who in BBMP do they work with for making the appropriate changes on the roads & what is the process?

Had a fantastic meeting

Meeting was advanced to 1 PM, so only Naveen and myself could adjust our schedules and go. But had a fantastic meeting with BMTC. Short on time rt now, will put meeting notes along with Naveen in a separate project blog.
