    Good find Shadow!!

    You beat me to posting the BTRAC link, wish I wasn’t busy this morning ;)

    On the same note though, did you guys read some very nice proposals BMTC made earlier this month. They suggested things that go beyond their jurisdiction, so I predict those will get BTRAC’ed.

    The most interesting thing in there sounded like an idea of large North South and East West flyover through the CBD. That clashes with the Core Ring Road idea floating around currently, but I like BMTC’s thinking better. Another good one in there was about dedicated bus corridors (BRTS like thing).

    Anyways. Will post something if I find more details than what I read in the newspapers.

    SB,Thanks… I was almost free today morning n made use of it. Yes you are right BMTC is now thinking quite wide now & i like the attitude which they have changed in recent times.
    I just tried to imagine the benifts of BTRAC today morning n let me tell i was lost somewhere in dream…. Hopes to except maximum from BTRAC, The one i liked much is Dedicated bus lanes and signal priority to public transport but this should not turn like dedicated lines for autos.

    My specific area of research is Transportation.I have gone through this site fully. I would like to know how exactly the problem is been interprated and formulated (if possible) so that i can come up with a solution which is feasible and practical. Could I have somebody’s contact no. who is actually dealing in this particular area of this project. Also we can together work on the other possibilities of finding out the solutions more acceptable. I work as a Lecturer in Mathematics for an engg Institute in Bangalore and looking for an opportunity like this which is challenging and where I can contribute something to Bangalore.
