As per report the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC)’s decision to increase AC bus fares by an average of 16.89% has not gone down well with activists and citizens.  Meanwhile according to the government-run city transport corporation, the hike is to “reduce operational loss” coupled with the steady increase in fuel prices and dearness allowance for its employees.



The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Committee said in a press statement “Since January 1, a constant rise in diesel price and Dearness Allowance has contributed to an increase in staff costs and operational expenditure and with this, it is difficult to provide Vajra services at present fares”. Moreover with traffic snarls and private vehicle ownership already on the rise, Sandeep Anirudhan, a civic activist, is of the opinion that the fundamentals of BMTC’s foundations are responsible for flawed decisions like this.

He said “It is set up as a company with expectations to make profits. It is a wrong idea to make profits when you are using public infrastructure for free. Why should you make profits out of citizens when you are a government body? If we don’t question these fundamentals, we are not going to solve the problem”.  Furthermore although there are no official numbers available in public domain, the BMTC’s AC buses are touted to carry close to 67,000 passengers daily, including its buses to and from the airport.
