    Yeah I must confess BMTC has come up with really wonderful ideas for all the citizens. I just wish that along with this, they could maintain the timings of their buses as well. It can get really frsutrating at times.

    The two drawbacks of BMTC is 1.Timings and 2.Rash driving.

    Timeings we need to compromise as this totally depends on traffic.

    I am sure that these innovations are going to be a success just like when they introduced volvo buses. Hopefully this makes more people think of switching from private transport to use public transport.
    However the frequency of services should be good enough that people doesn’t end up waiting a lot of time which makes them frustrated and rather not go with it.
