"We will deploy additional buses to cater to the growing demand on all the corridors leading to the IT hubs of the city.
We will concentrate on the seven corridors that include Old Madras Road, Old Airport Road, Sarjapur Road, Hosur Road, Bannerghatta Road, Tumkur Road and Mysore Road" .

--A BMTC official

After a moderately successful Bus Day last month, BMTC is all set to provide additional services on all the seven corridors on its sixth Bus Day on Wednesday. With autorickshaws losing business after the revision of fares came into effect, the transport corporation aims to make the most of the situation.
BMTC also plans to offer loop services providing last mile connectivity to passengers. To publicise this Bus Day, transport minister R.

Ashok will take a bus from JP Nagar Woody’s Hotel to Bannerghatta National Park.

Keeping in mind the feedback they received about the last Bus Day, BMTC has made arrangements for a better experience this time, sources said.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, a senior BMTC official said: “We will deploy additional buses to cater to the growing demand on all the corridors leading to the IT hubs of the city.

We will concentrate on the seven corridors that include Old Madras Road, Old Airport Road, Sarjapur Road, Hosur Road, Bannerghatta Road, Tumkur Road and Mysore Road.

Over 500 additional buses are planned to be deployed on these corridors that will cater to office goers.”

“Just like Whitefield Saarige, we are in the process of finalising other locations where last mile connectivity can be provided to passengers via buses.
The destination oriented loop services are aimed at providing hassle-free commuting and will minimise the possibility of passengers being fleeced,” the official said.
