  1. The metro feeder buses MF24 which plies for a short distance from Nagasandra metro station to Chikkabanavara is really not serving the actual purpose of the metro commuters..specially from Chikkabanavara to nagasandra..every time we board this feeder the conductors either make an announcement that 8th mile is the last stop or misguide the customer to get down in the middle of the road telling that it takes 5 kms round to the reach the metro..but are never really bothered abt the actual destination.Request the competent authorities to actually keep a check on this and resolve the issue at the earliest.Regards.

  2. there is no feeder service from delmia circle / Jp nagar 3rd PHase to JP Nagar or Banashankari. It helps lot of people travel on metro by avoiding traffic on jayanagar 4th block and other busy areas to reach Majestic and other parts near by Metro green line.

  3. Please provide metro feeder service from BSK 5th Stage (i.e. Mantri Alpyne) to Nayandahalli

  4. Sir,

    The existing MF-16 & MF 18 route to be modified. National college metro station no Metro feeder buses. We have to go to by walk to Ramakrishma Ashram or North road stop. Actually MF 16 AND MG 18 is there but all buses from Lalbhagh west gate to North road buses pass through FLYOVER. If MF-16 & MF.18 passes down it will be helpfull for Metro commuters. We can catch bus nr National college. Actualy BMTC official busstop is there [National High school stop]. Everyday we travelling from KR Puram to Kathriguppe By catching metro from Byappanahalli to National college.

    Kindly do the needful.

  5. There is no direct service from bilekahalli to banashankari/sarakki signal. If service is provided in the ring road it will help a lot of passenges

    • There is no feeder route passing through Bilekahalli connecting to any station on Metro Green line. This is very sad state of affairs of BMRC and BTMC.

  6. Kindly provide feeder buses from N.R.Colony, Thyagarajanagar(31E stop) to National college or South End circle stop, This will reduce traffic in and around Basavanagudi, NR colony and Thyagarajanagar.

  7. Hi, Feeder buses from Anjanapura to Yelachenahalli metro will be useful. I read here that MF-17 does not go to the Yelachenahalli metro station, which leaves us commuters the option to walk around 4 kms or take a cab which works out expensive. Request for the feeder bus to be made available.

    Thanks
    Sowmya

    • What is the meaning of feeder service if it does not carry passengers till Metro station (Yelechenahalli)? Moreover Yelechenahalli is the terminal station of Green line as at present. Horrible!

  8. Please provide Metro feeder from Baiyappanahalli Metro Station to Manyatha Tech park / Hebbal , so that many IT people will stop using Cars /2 Wheelers to Office, which will help to connect better.

  9. The fact that you have published something about metro-feeder routes now tells us something – the burra-sahibs at BMTC were asleep and now decided to create some noise about transport. Similarly, the BMRCL is toeing the BMTC line running only 3 coaches at a time and making sure that the metro is jam packed – surely this must be a directive from the top. What were they doing? Could they not predict that there would be a huge demand? Yes any fool could see that there would be a huge demand, but they wanted to make sure that the BMRCL would not provide public transport in keeping with the ministry’s commandment “no efficient public at any cost”. This is why our wise netas kept the metro away for decades and now ensured that it would remain crippled forever.

  10. Start a Feeder service from Nayandahalli to Nayandahalli covering Rajarajeswari Nagar kengeri Uttarahalli vasanthapura Konanankunte cross Yelechenalli banashankari devegowda kathriguppe and Nayandahalli and reverse direction.

  11. There is no Metro feeder Service from old Airport road , Manipal Hospital , Jeevan Bhima Nagar main Road etc .

  12. I was so excited that MF-17 connects ISRO Layout to Yelachenahalli Metro. I got into one today that came from Kumaraswamy Layout and I was surprised when the conductor said that the bus wont go to Yelachenahalli but will go directly to Konanakunte cross and onward to Anjanapura. I think communication is yet to percolate to these guys, but I thought “Metro Feeder” was obvious enough to include a metro station on the route.

    • Yes, I too agree. Feeder service without connecting metro station is joke. Yesterday I also experienced the same ,moreover Kunanakunte cross is a messy place.this could have been avoided with a proper planning like under pass which will ensure smooth flow of traffic during peak hours, this could have been done before taking up metro expansion to AOL. Also, in future this junction will bring nightmares esp.once Forum mall opens to public…

  13. There is no feeder service bus from Jigani APC circle, Bomasandra, chandapura, anekal. Suggesting to arrange the same as it will cover almost 25% south Bangalore to Metro. This will reduce the traffic to Bannerghatta road as well as Madiwala junction.

  14. There are no feeder services from Basaveshwarnagar to Vijaynagar metro station or to Rajajinagar metro station. I suggest that BMTC may run a service connecting Vijaynagar Metro station to Rajajinagar metro station via basaveshwarnagar and Chord road in a ring route. It will also benefit people staying in parts of Rajajinagar and Chord Road apart from residents of Basaveshwarnagar. This route will touch 3 metro stations ie., Rajajinagar,Hosahalli and Vijaynagar. It will also link both the Green and Purple lines of Metro.
