People travelling in the BMTC had expressed disappointment that the bus fares were high and there were not sufficient buses which would make their travel comfortable.

 

Now, the BMTC is likely to take the decision on cutting down the bus fare soon. There was another contention that the fare difference between the first two stops and the third stop was too much. The minimum fare was Rs 5 and the next stage it increased to Rs 12 with a seven rupees difference.

 

Moreover, people nor the conductors would have proper change. Thus now the rate of the second stage in the bus is likely to be cut to Rs 10 from Rs 12.

 

The BMTC is also contemplating on reducing the fare in the Volvo buses. The final list of the bus fare is likely to be out within a week.
