Bengaluru: The cherished journey in the Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) buses for passengers is now turning out to be a harrowing experience as the travel time will get longer. The reason for this is that of bad roads, potholes, digging of roads and drains for installation of new pipes and daily registration of new private vehicles causing slow-moving traffic. According to BMTC, 6,500 buses that have a target to cover 214 kilometres daily, can cover only 202 km, thus a loss of about 12 to14 on a daily trip.
