The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) will introduce feeder services under the name of ‘Big Connect’. The service is based on the directive issued by the High Court of Karnataka and will be effective on 19 routes across Bengaluru from 26th June 2011.
Services for two more routes will be announced after BWSSB has finished laying of pipelines. The service hopes to improve bus connectivity in outer areas of Bangalore.
The press release issued by BMTC says that the department will assess the performance of all the routes for a period of three months and then take a decision regarding continuation or otherwise after bringing it to the notice of the High Court.
Speaking to Citizen Matters, Sampangiram Gowda of BMTC said, "The buses will be operated on a frequency of 20 minutes starting from 7.30 am and ending at 7.30 pm. After the trial phase we are looking to extend the timings to 10.30 pm."
