BANGALORE: The Shantinagar bus terminal aimed at relieving congestion at Kempegowda and Kalasipalyam bus stations, will be inaugurated on Wednesday by Chief Minister N. Dharam Singh.

All city buses heading south - towards Jayanagar, JP Nagar and Banashankari - will now start from and end at this terminal. It will also serve suburban buses going towards Anekal, Hosur, Sarjapur, Chandapura and Kanakapura.

The well-planned station has 30 platforms and can accommodate an equal number of buses at any point in time. It also has a parking lot with a capacity for 200 cars and 200 two-wheelers. BMTC initially plans to operate 1,000 trips a day from the bus stand. A special feature of the Shantinagar bus terminal is a long pedestrian subway connecting all platforms, which eliminates accidents due to people coming in the way of buses.
