Mysore Keen on Promoting Cycling - Why not Bangalore taking any initiative

263 users have liked.

Mysore City's new Commissioner and Deputy Commissiner are keen on promoting cycling in the city. They have mandated all the Government employees working in Taluk Office, Corporation and DC office to come by Bicycle or Public Transport on Mondays. They are also building cycling tracks around the city. Also, heritage cycle tour of Mysore has started along with walking tour.

Our Bangalore Mayor  is still keen on building signal free corridors and flyovers which is already suffering badly from traffic, encouraging more private motorized transport.
