India - 560 027
I am Abhijna Nayak of Its year BE from BMSCE Basavanagudi Bangalore
Paid annual bus pass amount of Rs. 1880/- through on line payment.
No bus pass issued by bmtc or refunded the amount .
I visited bmtc accounts section but they just not ready to redress my complaint and started red tapisam all the way
Please look into and help me to get my money back
i have a concern regarding the driver which i was faced yesterday(03.04.16), i was coming from silkboard to electronic city, the bus registered no. KA-57F 1037 and KA57F 975 at evening 9PM, These two bus were driving by young drivers and they were driving like HELL.
Both they were playing with human life, they were in hurry to home it seems and driving was like chasing and racing scenes in FAST AND FURIOUS MOVIE.
Please it was rash driving you should take some action against the such a reckless irresponsible drivers, they were stopping the buses in middle of the road also, even though the passengers were in bus stop, even PRIVATE BUS SERVICES are stopping the vehicles very near to the BUS STOP.
They have passed by overtaking me, i was totally lost my balance of my bike because the winds were created by the buses speed, even other BMTC buses also passed by, but they were maintaining some public safety standards but these two were very HORRIBLE.
My sincere suggestion is MONITOR the bus speed and how they are driving in practical, educate regarding the public safety standards.
Thanks & regards
1. There is lot of crowd in buses in mornings en route from Peenya to Malleswaram because 3/4th of the bus is filled with college students' crowd.
There should be separate bus provided for college students- Govt. Girl's college in Malleswaram 13th cross.
In Mumbai, bmtc has arranged for separate buses for some schools to drop students on people's request as they charge lesser than school bus.
2. There are no proper bus-stands in many areas, esp. RMC yard...people have to stand on road on dust in between the moving vehicles coming in and out of Shell petrol pump there.
3. Every bus should have sign-board written in English/Hindi which is the National language.
4. Rash driving by some drivers to be taken care.
My name is Ashok N.
I used to travel daily from Jayanagar 4th block to Vasantha nagar using BMTC Bus (Route: MBS-14 :: Registration no : KA 01 - F 8873 timing morning : 8:45 AM near jayanagar)
The driver is so rude to passengers, skips stops and drops passengers near by places like bus signal or road junction traffic etc.
And always he is not following the route, actual bus route is to go through the Vasantha nagar bus stop, but he used to go through millers tank bund road after cunningham road and drop off me near cantonment station. And if asked he scolds in kannada and always abuses passengers who ask him why he is driving the bus so rashly.
He is over speeding on the road. Some time he does not go to cunningham road also, he takes right from shivaji nagar and go through russel market area and so i have to get down at shivaji nagar to catch another bus to Vasanthanagar, There are around 10 passenger who daily travel this route get down at shivaji nagar because of this driver.
Please look in to this problem. Because of him, atleast 5-10 people are having a bad day starting to work, he is abusing passenger and literally that is a bad way to go to work.
I am a regular commuter of BMTC Bangalore and I commute daily to & fro for my office, and fed up seeing the day robbery done by these BMTC conductors. It creates so much of anger in me but stand helpless on how to prevent this. I had complained so many times in 'mybmtc.com' but all in vain, no use.
Here is the some the tricks followed by the conductors to loot money
For short distances they simply get money without issuing ticket. For example, for 2 stops, if the ticket cost Rs 8, he will get Rs 5 without issuing ticket. This occurrence is too heavy.
For almost for all of the tickets where the conductor needs to give change, for example 16 Rs ticket, he will get 20 Rs and the change of Rs 4 he will write at the back of the ticket, and getting back this change is something a herculean task when getting down. So many people miss this because of crowd or just like that
Even if those tickets people get the change from him, conductor gives back the change but not the ticket and he recirculates the ticket. This occurrence also so huge.
The case is worst with other states people especially north Indians labors, he simply gets the whole money without issuing ticket, because of language problem, they simply leave that money.
On Sundays, this is worst hit, the frequency of doing this more and I myself heard conductors boldly telling, "no one will come today, ticket not required"
All these robbery will amount to at-least 30% to an extent of may be 60% also of the total collections
The result of this is the common people who sincerely takes ticket or regular buss pass holders like us are the worst hit. The BMTC understands they run into loss and hike the fares and it ultimately affects common regular pass holders like me.
Two days before also BMTC has hiked the fare and this brings lot of anger in me because first this has to be stopped by the conductors.
After this hike seeing again these acts by the conductors during the bus travel really brings so much of anger and hence this mail
writing this mail out of frustration. people should understand the consequences of such acts. This is the shame of Bangalore and we should eradicate this social even from this city
The BMTC Official who has the authority of terminating the employment of these crew should directly witness whats going on and take actions. That alone will result or eradicate this social evil.
I am Bijoy Samuel. This is to inform you that on 28/2/13, Thursday around 6:35-6:40pm, my wife got into a Bus from Devasandra. The Bus was coming from Majestic, Bus no was 276 and Reg no was KA 01 FA 2224 going towards Vidyaranyapura. The bus was little rush and she could not get into the bus completely and almost standing near to the steps with great difficulty. The bus driver was scolding everyone to go inside and shouting in very vulgar language. There were not a single space to go inside and still he was forcing everyone to go inside. Suddenly he BEATEN my wife with his hand on her back. Suddenly she got shocked and started crying. Still the Bus Driver was scolding in local language. None of the passenger was not ready to utter a word against to the Driver after seeing his behavior. Since she does not understand the Local language, she could not reply back anything. Still she is in that shock. So please take an action on the Bus Driver and do the needful. Just think is this the way to behave to a woman being a Bus Driver? Hope you understand the situation and will take necessary action against the Bus Driver.
Looking forward to hear from you
Thanks & Regards

I am a commuter who travel by BMTC volvo daily to electronic city. Within electronic city there are few points where all the busses stop and when we get into bus we will be thinking of that particular stop where we get down daily but there is a lady conductor in volvo 356C (KA-01 FA 1530) who gives stops as per her own rules. Daily we will be running for office and in such conditons if she doesnot stop at regular stop it will be very tough for us. It is not that she is following rules, she gives stop near PES college where there is no stop but once she enters electronic city,
she has her own rules. We have to get down where she stops and run to office. This bus reaches EC around 8:15AM. I canceled my company bus pass as the convience of VOLVO is very nice but such conductors are pain early morning.I request you to please make sure she is kind to people atleast early morning.
Today I use to travel from MES Road to Marathahalli while using BMTC Bus No. KA01 F8973 at 7.30 to 8.40 time, the conductor & driver of the bus is very rood, few points;
1) Using singular to the passengers
2) While stopping at the Bus sand they are not giving minimum to to alight.
3) Rough attitude with passengers while giving tickets
4) At the last stop they have forcibly stop the bus before bus stop (Maratha halli)
Please take an action.
I am travelling by BMTC volvo bus 500D (Bus no KA -01 F9094)from Agra. I found that today (14th Oct) @ 8.30am bus was ful. Lady conductor had occupied front seat. She didn't allow anyone to sit even when she was roaming in the bus for tickets. Old ladies were standing beside her seat. She was talking very rashly.
Asking the public "why they r not boarding empty bus? "
The BMTC Marcopolo Service for Route #10 [ Avalahalli extn to KBS ]coming from Depot 13 is highly irregular and public is facing lot of problems because its not on time and even though there are 6 buses, its pathetic service
The drivers park their vehicles at the last stop [ Avalahalli extn ] for hours together and nobody is bothered to maintain the timings. Each day in the morning and evening[Office hours] they operate at their own convinient timings and public have to depend on Auto Service to go to Nirmala Stores Bus Stop and catch another service to KBS.
BMTC should not blame the delay on traffic congestion, because if this was true, even the services running from other areas to Majestic through Nirmala Stores, Cottonpet should have affected, but they maintain the timings to atleast certain level.
BUT ROUTE #10 IS PATHETIC SERVICE. PLEASE TAKE ACTION ON THIS IMMEDIATELY
i am complaining about the misbehaviour of conductor.
Bus number - KA01 FA1855
Date - 9/9/2011 and time - 11am approx.
If anyone are able to take action on that, then please take it.
Otherwise if i am taking the action, then it would be dangerous to BMTC.
Here BMTC Conductors are cheating people with extra fare, I am an IT employee, I used to travel in the same route every day i.e. Outer ring road J.P.Morgan to Central Silk Board, Here from my office to slikboard the original cost of the ticket is 25/- in volvo's . Only few conductor will give correct ticket with correct fair .
Last week in 500c bus conductor taken 25 rupees for the same distance with printed ticket (where it will display source and destination), the details were perfect in the ticket as source marathalli as jpmorgan stop doesn't have any original stop. and destination as central silk board,
After two days I went in the same bus, conductor was different he charged me 30rs for the same distance he gave from ticket to BTM 16th main instead of central slik board, I asked regarding the same he told me that this is fair if u want travel in the bus, if not don't travel from next time ...
Again next I took the same series bus i.e. 500c bus conductor taken 25 rupees for the same distance with printed ticket (where it will display source and destination) . I asked him that some of the conductors are not giving correct tickets why, then he was explaining me that it is because they have some targets for that commission they will do like that
yesterday I took the same series bus, this there is lady conductor, she charged me 35 rupees, this time usual bus tickets this is not a printed ticket from machine ... I asked her why are charging me 35 rupees daily I am paying either 25 or 30, she never replied me back and I asked her that did the ticket fare got increased then she replied no, then I asked her for the reason, she never spoken a word...
Bus series 500c - route - Hebbal to Banashakari -- Ticket no NT 27 637735, MS [protected] rs, 15 rs = total 35 rupees), this is how they are cheating people. I request to taken action on this, Please publish the ticket fare in the official BMTC website so we will have a chance to ask them ..
Still I have the tickets... Let me C do they guts to punish them ...
It has been frequently observed that the BMTC Volvo 505A(KA01-FA-2378) plying from C.V.Raman Nagar to Electronics city at 7:40 am from C.V.Raman Nagar, is not putting the AC in the bus.It has become really unbearable to commute in this bus due to suffocation.Most passengers in the bus are software proffesionals who had discontinued their company provided transport and availing this Volvo.This issue is raising health concerns.Request the authority concerned to look into this matter.
Today morning in Kalinga Rao Road, one BMTC bus No. KA 01 FA 375, route no. 271, no idea of the initial, the driver who was driving the bus in a very rash and Negligent manner. They don't have a common sense to give a horn atleast. They ignore the people who stand in front of them, today i was in from of that bus at 9.05 am once we got the yellow signal light he started the bus immediately at hitted my vehicle and without stopping the bus even after everyone shouted he just went fast.Kindly educate the drivers and let them know the value of life of the people. All BMTC Drivers are cruels, idiots etc...

I completely agree. Today near KR puram flyover everybody know how intense is the traffic and how important it is to maintain lane. But the driver of the bus KA-01 SA 1264 - 501K was driving
very rash and negligently. He was not maintaing the lane and he almost hit my car. When asked to maintain the lane he started abusing me. And he hept on honking from behind even thought there was no space for him to overtake me. I am kannadiga and have lived here for 10 years now, things are going from bad to worse. Please council these drivers and talke appropriate action action else the public may have to act.
Today 31-Dec-2010, I travelled in TATA Marcoplo 96A bus with registration number KA-01 F8545 from Majestic to Basaveshwara Nagar at around 8:15 pm. Even though the bus goes to Basaveshwara Nagar circle, just because me and my friends were having Volvo buses both Driver and Conductor said the bus will not goto Basaveshwara Nagar and shouted on us and asked us to get down from running bus. Behind that one more BMTC was coming which would have killed both me and my friend. We got into the bus in Platform 6 where the bus was stopped.
Later the same bus driver and conductor moved the bus to platform 5 and were calling the Basaveshwara Nagar bus stop asking people to get in. Me and my friend got into the bus and enquired why they told that bus will not goto Basaveshwara Nagar, they told its there wish and we can complaint to whomever we want.
This is not the first time I am facing this problem with the same conductor. He always behave badly with the passengers who are volvo passholders. Also I observed that the conductor is not giving Rs.1 change to any of the passengers. Requesting you to please advise both condutor and driver to behave properly with the passengers.
I boarded MBS15 from HAL kalyanamantapa. I got a ticket to ITPL backgate, the condutor didnt give me the balance and instead wrote the amount at the back of the ticket. While my stop was approaching i asked the conductor for balance amount. First he pretended like he didnt hear me. Then somehow i got his attention and asked him for the balance. By that time the bus reached the stop. Inspite of having change, he said he didnt have and asked me for the change. Since i didnt have, he gave me less than actual amount and asked me to get down at the stop. I refused and i pointed out that he had enough change. Then he started yelling in local language and asked the driver move. I argued with him and somehow got the balance. When i asked the conductor to stop he didnt mind and the driver too. And then i had to get at the next stop.
That is not all. Every day some thing or the other like this happens to almost all. Either they don't give the balance or they take money little less than actual and dont give tickets and if somebody has the guts to ask for, then they will start shouting as if it was the passengers fault. BMTC has to look into this very seriously. BMTC has to appoint checking inspectors to get hold of this misbehaving conductors/drivers. I've been travelling daily in local BMTC for the past 8 months and so far has not seen a single ticket checking inspector. If this is the condition, then why won't be BMTC under huge loss. After all, the conductors and drivers are filling their pockets.
The behaviour of BMTC bus conductors and drivers is usually very rude towards the commuters. Especially the female commuters. They normally treat as if we are not human beings but a herd of sheep or cattle.
I daily use the BMTC bus to travel from BTM Layout to Electronic city and almost everyday, I see the same beahviour. It seems as if it gives them some kind of pleasure in doing so.
I would site today's case:-
The driver of BMTC bus No. 600 (KA-01 / FA-66) ( Time ~ 9:15 AM), was behaving very rudely with the female passengers. Even though the bus was over crowded, he was asking them to push themselves behind. On top of that his driving was extremely rash with sudden breaks which was causing more panic.
Not only that when I told him not to behave like this (even though I dont know Kannada), he felt offensive and throughout my journey for next half-and- hr, he was making lewd, though not direct, jestures. The way he looked at me when the bus used ot stop was unbearable. Do they behave the same way with their daughters and sisters too...
I want immediate action to be taken against this particular bus driver. Because he deserves nothing good.
Its a request and if not taken seriously, and I see the same driver again anytime, I will keep submitting more complaints. So kindly take some action against him
The people are not only harrassed by auto-rickshaw drivers but also bus drivers and conductors.
They need to be taught how to behave with the passengers and esp ladies.
They should be given badges with name displayed so that in case of any such incidents, people can logde complain against that particular driver or conductor.
If action is taken against them a couple to times, they will themselves change their behaviour. But if the authority doesnt do anything then this menace will increase and we will continue getting harrassed.
the driver of bus no KA01 F 8565 was driving rashly near yeshwanthpur railway station today, 12th july 2010 at around 4pm, and almost ran me over.if i hadn't applied the brakes at the right moment, my car would have definitely gone under the bus.with all the metro rail work going on in that area, the traffic is already congested, we dont need bus drivers only interested in overtaking other vehicles on the road with absolutely no concern about anybody's safety. i know for a fact that this bus driver did this deliberately because he was trying to overtake my car much before that.
Yesterday(2.07.2010) my son was traveeling by BMTC Bus No 360B from corporation stop and he got down at devasthana stop at arount evening 7.30pm to 8.00 pm.he has student bus pass. he is a II year PUC student. by that time he was carrying his college bag and his sports bag. in that sports bags has his track pant and spikes shoes and some towels and cloths.that he kept at the centre enterence's next one under the seat. he forgot to take back his spors bag.that was in that bus only and he got down.kindly if that bus conductor or driver has found that please contact to [protected]. that bag is TIPTOP company bag Grey colour
