Those who think they know BMTC well, tell us this. How do they plan new bus routes? How do they actually make a profit? How often do they undertake routing and deployment reforms? How do they get help from BBMP and Traffic Police - any agreement based approach?

This project will track BMTC's operation in greater details. Idea is to understand their operations and cost structure, their profit and loss statements and their initiatives in greater details. Information about BMTC can be gathered via emails or meetings with BMTC, and if needed, via RTIs.

Join this project only if you will help organize or attend meetings, or help frame questions, or when needed file RTIs. Do not join this project if you merely want to write posts on BMTC - regular web site and blogs are good enough for that.

BMTC - focus areas and recent initiatives


Taking things forward from our last Praja meet and to brain storm and plan activities on tracking BMTC initiatives, here's my bit to get things started on a few things that deserve note.

1. Big-10 and HOHO services - scalability and scope for improvements.


Closing this landmark Project

Closing this project, sort of a landmark one as this is what lead to Mobilicity (first), and then the Bus Day initiative.

Those who want to re-run this in 2010 should create a new project. People change, and so will the objective as some members are anyway engaging with BMTC via Bus Day support work.
