After 2 months, Bengaluru’s BMTC set to resume services; officials to discuss safety measures

Bengaluru's dependable transport system, BMTC is likely to resume operations as the new guidelines given by the Ministry of Home Affairs does not put the transport system under any direct prohibition.

 

With these guidelines, the state government, which is almost out of funds, will look to use its transport system to stabilise the economy in the state.

 

The Karnataka government had already begun liquor sales, despite criticism. Now that there is a breather from the Union government on giving the state the powers to choose what to operate to an extent, the state is willing to resume BMTC operations in keeping with safety protocol. Sources indicate that if the service resumes, it will be mostly like that of the Kerala model of limited passengers, after screening them, with no service in containment zones.

At a time of financial distress, the government wants to tap BMTC's potential that would generate over Rs 200 crore monthly, before lockdown.
