The coolest way to move around town, the Bus!

  Taking the bus is the most eco-friendly and convenient way to commute from one place to another within Bangalore. It drastically reduces the carbon emissions as one bus replaces a number of cars on the roads. This reduction in the amount of cars in turn leads to the reduction in traffic congestion.  The bus takes you to almost every nook and corner in the city, without you having to take the pains of knowing the routes and also, the worry of getting lost is gone. The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation [BMTC] has a very strong network throughout the city. If you take a good look at the BMTC website http://www.bmtcinfo.com/site/index.jsp, you will find out that- it has over 79000 trips, nearly 13lakh kilometers serving over 43lakh people every day. Now those are some REAL big figures! It covers every small bus stop and even the out-skirts of the city like Yelahanka, Kadugodi etc.  The advantage of using buses does not end at lesser carbon emissions and reduction in traffic…you always think that you needed the ‘extra’ hours in the day to just read, knit, the hobbies that you are unable to practice in your busy life or even just take a small nap, you can always do while sitting in the bus unlike when driving a car. The savings that you can make are astonishing, as the bus is a lot more pocket-friendly when compared to the fuel cost. The BMTC, as a part of its aim of providing quality public transport all through the city and t all sections in the society; celebrates ‘Bus Day’ on the 4th of every month. The objective of this day is to bring about the participation of all you Bangaloreans in taking a stand against the increasing pollution and climate change in the city. So pull up your socks and work toward the environment by taking the bus to work, schools, college and don’t forget to use the special bus service that is available on all match days in Bangalore. The BMTC has made post-match commute easy by organizing buses to all 12 corridors in the city at 5 minute intervals after the match is over. So for those of you who are cheering for RCB at the stadium, the late night travel is not going to be a problem! RCB as a symbol of their commitment toward the environment and to encourage environmental friendly style of living also support bus-commute. All your favorite players travel in the bus to practice sessions and to matches. So RCBians put on your pads and join hands to support RCB in their Green mission. To fully support bus-commute RCB brings to you an exciting new contest, ‘I travelled in a Bus’, all you have to do is travel in the bus for the next two days [4th and 5th of May 2012] send us your name, contact number, e-mail address and pictures at community@royalchallengers.com and the best pictures that we receive will be featured on the RCB Green Page. RCB is game for green are you??
