Transit management centre by July next

Staff Reporter
BANGALORE: Transport Minister R. Ashok on Monday said the new travel and transit management centre (TTMC) at Yeshwanthpur will be operational by July next year.

Speaking after inaugurating a bus stand at Chikkamaranahalli in RMV Extension II Stage here, he said 400 cars and 60 buses can be parked at the TTMC at a time.

The Minister said the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) is on a mission to construct TTMCs across the city to offer park-and-ride facility for the public.

More than 1,000 BMTC buses are forced to park on roads every day due to space crunch in depots. As many as five new depots will be constructed at Kothanur, Kannalli, Siddapura, Chikkanagamangala and Bidadi, he said.

To offer better training, BMTC will open a driver training centre at Voddarahalli at a cost of Rs. 12.25 crore.
