Mysuru: The Ambaari Double Decker Dasara bus ride on designated routes to cover prominent tourist spots within the city will have to wait for some more time to make its first trip.

The LED serial lights installed across the roads are lower in height than the tall Ambaari bus restricting its start.

For the uninitiated Ambaari is a hop-on and hop-off initiative for tourists to experience the magnificent City of Palaces and other Heritage structures. It is a specially built bus for open-roof tours, with a seating capacity of 40 passengers.

The bus, an initiative of State-run Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) was launched as a tourist attraction.

But the Double Decker bus parked in KSTDC premises on JLB road is under wraps as of today to prevent dust accumulation and rainwater.

According to KSTDC officials the bus is 20ft tall and LED serial lights installed in the roads are lower in height than the bus. If a person stands on the open top bus, the height goes to 25 ft, he added.

Officials say though the bus could move on certain roads as of now, it cannot be taken out of KSTDC Office itself as the lights installed near the Office are very low in height.
