Other flavours of Bangalore city buses- quite likely the most diverse urban fleet in India!

IT-enabled services for streamlining bus operations and monitoring traffic revenue collection of Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) are to be implemented shortly.

The service is being outsourced to a private player for five years, at Rs. 15 crore annually. The private service provider brings in the infrastructure, including global positioning system (GPS) gadgets for buses and electronic ticketing machines (ETMs), for online monitoring of operations and revenue collection.

Outgoing BMTC Managing Director K.R. Srinivasa told The Hindu that the lowest bidder was selected after following due tendering process. He said that the corporation is awaiting clearance from the Finance Department and hoped that his successor would take the issue forward.

Through this initiative, 6,000 BMTC buses would be fitted with GPS devices and tracked online. As a result, among other things, the crew who tend to give the last trip of the day a miss will not be able to do that.

The GPS devices will be integrated with the ETMs for generating periodic reports on traffic revenue collection, which, officials believe, will end pilferage. The ETMs will be compatible with the proposed Common Mobility Card, through which one can shift seamlessly between BMTC and Bangalore Metro Rail.

Fleet augmentation

Besides introducing ITES for better delivery of services, BMTC is in the process of adding more buses to its fleet this year.

ssiguy2, thanks for your interest in this thread!

Yes, Bangalore has a large and good quality bus network that also serves well as feeder routes.
Bangalore has continuously spawned and swallowed satellite townships, and already has a suburban rail network.
However, the need exists for a large commuter rail network and that's already in the early stages of construction.
A monorail system has also been proposed for parts of Bangalore.
All these forms of urban transport are detailed in the Bangalore Public Transport in this sub-forum.

This thread focusses specifically on the heavy rail system in Bangalore, its metro rail (Namma Metro).

Yes, I often go into the India infrastructure threads. I find it very interesting, and encouraging, that India seems to be embracing monorail. With monorail system popping up around the world for TRUE mass/rapid transit they are finally getting the respect they deserve.
