1. Has Bus Day been successful in drawing more people to BMTC buses?
It's improving with every Bus Day. Today, the fourth Bus Day will be observed and we are hopeful that more people board BMTC buses than what we saw previously.

2. Are there any plans of having a dedicated bus lane?
The BMTC wanted a to have dedicated bus lanes since long. If implemented, it will definitely work. The traffic will reduce considerably and more and more people will start using BMTC buses.

3. What after Metro and Monorails start operations in the city?
It won't affect us much, as people will have to use BMTC buses to reach Metro and Monorail stations. Also, these projects will make a few more years to get complete and by that time the city too would expand. Thus, there will always be a demand for the BMTC buses. ” Text and pic by Madhusudan Maney
