Bangalore Sight Seeing by Open Top Tour Bus

The Tourism Department is commissioning five open-top double-decker buses that will take passengers to around 15 monuments/tourist spots in the city including Vidhana Soudha, Mayo Hall, Cubbon Park, the Chitrakala Parishad, etc. The buses, manned (or womanned) by a “City Jockey”, will run every 30 minutes and each ticket (valid for 24 hours) will cost Rs. 300 for adults and Rs. 150 for children.

This sounds like a great way to see Bangalore, even if you are not a tourist! I love just riding on the trains and buses in any city – I think the rides give one a great feel for a city. But given the traffic situation in the city and the pollution, I would recommend riding these buses on a weekend.

For more information, call 2558 0660.

    The weekend traffic blues is only a wee bit shriller than those on weekdays!
    Me, I’d prefer to just hole up in my den!
