All Hands On The Double Deck
Bangaloreans, we bring you some fun news, especially if you are into public Transport. Apparently, five double decker buses are set to hit the roads by the end of this year. And according to BMTC, this is a move to boost tourism and bring back the Garden City’s past glory. Taking the heavy traffic into account, BMTC is going ahead with the plan because they want to ” help children and youths remember the past glory the city and get to know Bengaluru better.” These buses will be plying on bigger roads that are free from the Metro service.
