    Today morning in Hosur Main Road, one pushpak bus which provides the service to infosys company, 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 drove the two wheelers vehicals on the road. Atleast educate the drivers and let them know the value of life of the people.

    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.

    Regards,
    Sibey

    Route No 335E, Bus number:- KA01 FA 431. I was driving my car KA53-N-368, The bus overtook me from left side. The bus took a sharp right turn and went on rubbing left side of the car. Even I slowed down drastically but did not help me avoiding this. Bus did not care to stop to know the situation I was left in.

    Driver of route No FDR-5 K01 F-2696 was driving rashly and didn't have any sense of traffic rules. While over taking from left side, hit my mirror and also didn't have any regrets on his mistake and said it is quite common and y I am making so much noise.

    I feel govt vehicles should set good examples instead of setting wrong example for the common man. There should be strict training given to these drivers as they carry on the responsibility of all the people taking the bus. Govt should seriously think on this front as part of easing the traffic jams which is caused majorly by such drivers

    I agree. The bangalore drivers and conductors are "HORRIBLE, CRUEL, EVIL AND EVERY BAD THINGS I CAN THINK OF".
    ON 5TH OF APRIL WHEN I TOOK A BUS FOR MAJESTIC, I TOOK A PASS. LATER WHEN I NOTICED THE PASS, THE DATE WAS GIVEN AS 1ST MARCH 2009. I WAS FORTUNATE THAT NO CONDUCTORS SAW THAT, ELSE MY MONEY ON THE PASS WOULD HAVE BEEN WASTED.
    IS THIS THE KIND OF CONDUCTORS AND DRIVERS YOU EMPLOY, WHO DOESN'T EVEN REALIZE WHAT DATE TO GIVE.
    ACKNOWLEDGE THEM FOR THE SAKE OF OTHER PASSENGERS.
    IF YOU EMPLOY SUCH CONDUCTORS THEN I SHALL CALL YOU... "CREEPS, INFECTED DOGS, LITTERED DUSTBIN. YOU ILLITERATE NO GOOD EVIL STUPID USELESS ALIENS FROM DRAINS"

    I have been in Bangalore for quite some time now. I believe only Delhi Blue Line can beat these guys.
    These guys are so ill behaved, rash and irritating that people like us can just watch.
    I dont know what kind of training is provided to them and how this bunch of hooligans are chosen for a public service.

    ITS A SHAME FOR THE SO CALLED COSMOPOLITAN BANGALORE!! and not to mention BMTC.

    On 24th around 8am near corporation circle, a man is about to meat a serious injurious, when he fell from the bus when getting into the bus(BMTC, route no 333F, its door less), due to the negligence of bus driver and the conductor. Both the driver and the conductor was negligence in stoping the bus near bus stop (corporation), some of the passengers came running to get into the bus, and one of the passenger slipped and fall down. He was just lucky, he missed the back tyre of the bus.
    The bus conductor, I think he is a muslim guy with beared on his face shouting on the passenger who fell down, saying u can get into next bus, who told u to come running and get into the bus. Another thing is the driver doesn't luck into the mirror whether the passengers are getting into the bus or not, just he drives like he is driving the F1 car accelerating from 0Kmph to 60 Kmph in seconds. The same thing he has done in majestic bus stand too.

    My name is ravi. a resident of K R PURAM. This complaint is about a negligancy and bad driver. This morning as usual i was riding to office. In Beniganahalli, this bus (KA 01 FA 1736 of depot 6) had bloked the traffic..by parking the bus in the middle of the road. I tried to tel him about his mistake, he started shouting and abusing. I then noted down the number of the bus and went ahead to see if i can see any cops..so that i can complain. The same bus again followed me and tried to hit me to the divider. I finally found a traffic SI near NGEF circle. i explained him.. But didnt get a proper response. He just noted down the number of the bus and said we wil take action. Is there anyone who can take actions on poo public? Is there anyone who can make these rude drivers pay for their negligence and abusings? PLEASE HELP ME.

    Bus number 335T (KA******1681)
    Bus driver name: Ramesh

    Daily I take bus from Kundalahalli to KTPO (stop next to I-Gate).
    Since this is not an official bus stop for other local state buses, everyone prefers volvos as these buses stop at KTPO.
    Today I boarded the bus at 10am.
    The bus driver did not halt the bus at the proper KTPO stop. When I requested him to stop the bus, he did not reply or react in any other way. He just closed the door & kept driving. Even on my repeated requests to stop the bus he did not do so & started speaking in kannada.
    I do not know the local language & that is one more reason why I prefer volvos, at least why I preferred volvos till date.

    Is this just a complaint blog kind of thing, or does anyone of authority actually take active interest in solving the issues logged by public?

    bus no (294d) it happend to two of us. i do not understand how come the squad dosent know about this behavior, i had got into this bus (294d)from byrathi cross and was traveling towards belishavele the ticket cost is 5 rs.and i had given this conductor 20rs he returned10rs without a ticket i asked him for the ticket, he started saying all kinds of things and finally gave me two 7 rs tickets . series (nz76 )(441198, 441199)he has a habit of taking cash from the passanger and not providing the ticket when asked for a ticket he scolds & gives out an overated ticket as he did not get the money for his pocket. when there is a squad check it will be the passenger who will be in trouble not the conductor action has to be taken .

    Please someone provide the control room number to register complaints, I had a cell number and have complained on that number fewer times, someone kindly provide the same, this number was earlier available in most of the BMTC city buses.

    The BMTC bus drivers which serves schools and private companies like infosys and a few others think there is a special permission granted to them to drive to there likings and scare the public in whatever manner they please.

    We definitely have to oppose the driving culture of the BMTC bus driver's everywhere including the Volvo a/c buses.

    Most importantly none of these buses have brake lights glowing on when they apply brakes and it also applies to KSRTC buses too which ply in some of the city roads with similar difficulty towards public...

    First of all, we would like to thank the Managing Director BMTC for providing a Bus stop in front of Manyata Embassy Business Park gate No:2 for all the employees comfort.

    I am Arvind and traveling from Silk Board to Manyata everyday. Most of the buses are not stopping in front of Manyata Gate, especially while leaving from office at around 8 PM and above none of the buses are not stopping in front of Manyata Gate. Please inform to all the BMTC Driver’s and Conductor’s to stop all the buses in front of Manyata Gate No2.

    I have experience from one of the BMTC Bus Driver today ( ka 01 2748). The Bus starts from Silk Board around 10 AM in the Morning and reached Manyata at 11.25 AM (April 21st, 2010). I have informed to the Bus Conductor and Driver to stop the Bus in front of Manyata Gate. He refused to stop the bus and comment some bad words, I told him we got a approval from your BMTC Managing Director. The Bus Driver asked me immediately, Is there any BMTC board? I showed the board (Snap Shot Attached for your reference along with this comment), the driver told me that is your company board not BMTC board.

    Finally, we have a humble request you to inform all the BMTC Driver’s and Conductor’s to stop all the buses in front of Manyata Gate No2.

    I dont know where to give complaint about BMTC, so I am writting here...

    Usually I go to office by own bike, I saw the Bus day info on my company internal page. So I planned to come by Bus on 4th June. From my bus stop I used to get the bus in 10 to 15 min. But today I reached the bus stop at 8:50, till 9:35 I am waiting for Bus. I was waiting for 45 min, after that I came back took my bike went to office.

    On bus day also I will not get the bus, so how I will get the bus on other day.

    My bus route.. Rammurthy Nagar to ITPL ... First I have to take 500c to reach Tin factory, after that any bus from Tin factory to ITPL.

    There is no 500c bus.

    Hope this message will reach BMTC.

    I did'nt give an complain in Police station since our whole system is corrupted - i am not having any faith to get justice in this case.

    But i am writing this complain to show my frustrations about this system we have and even Police started neglecting these kinds of incidents.

    Finally i am claiming insurance for my car - Very unfortunate :(

    I have similar experience with one of the BMTC bus route number G3 and bus number KA01 FA 2241. The driver has twiced has overtaken my car in the single lane today December 2, 2010. The lane was single lane in vevek nager still the rude driver didnot bothered to be give signal or to wait for other cars to pass. The bus was about to ram my car. Going forward it was the same behavior of the driver for overtaking others and approaching other cars while overtalking other cars. This drivers dont know the concept of safe distance. RTA to please check whether this drivers qualifies for driving in the bangalore traffic. This particular driver has also jump the trinity circle traffic at 9:30 am, however to my surprise no action has been taken by the traffic police present over there. This driver normally dont follow the lane disciplines and they dont consider other traffic with respect. A question to RTA and BMTC, ARE THIS DRIVER SAFE FOR BANGALORE ROADS. Please check. I know the querry would be ignored by the authorities.

    KA01F 8734 - 500DA (Driver on duty: Monday, Wednesday and Friday)

    1. Driver has no respect on other drivers.
    2. Driver is more egoistic and behaves arrogantly if someone overtakes.
    3. Speed and overtaking rashly, scratching/hitting other vehicles.
    4. Without knowing next vehicles, driver moves the bus left and right, causing damages to vehicles.
    5. When he drives fast, tension for boarded passengers, whether this driver hits any bike/persons.

    Eg: All mistakes from driver side.
    1. With foot, he hitted one volvo bus conductor, when on quarrel.
    2. Completely scratched left side of a new maruti alto car.
    3. Daily quarrels with other drivers.

    This driver is un-fit as bus driver.
    Please take action on the driver.

    Thanks.

    BMTC BUS NO. 201 Jun 03, 2011

    Respected Sir,

    My Name is Vidhya, I reside at Austin Town Bangalore - 47, I am a Senior Consultant in a Consultancy

    I would like to bring to your notice that the Bus Driver did not give me a stop at the Bus Stand, Though I showed a hand Signal to Stop the Bus. Bus No.is KA-01 F-4800 at 7:00pm, BUS No. is "201 "My Ticket No. is C7 705786 on 2nd June 2011,

    That bus just stopped in a close by Signal, I rushed for the same Bus and Questioned the Bus Driver as to why didn't he give me the stop, His Reply was that, there were nobody in the Bus Stand other than me, and
    It was not his duty to stop the Bus in every stop if there is limited passengers. The bus driver was too harsh towards me while replying for the same. I was very eagarly waiting for the bus, as I was very late to home that day.
    Request you to kindly take any necessary action against such aggresive and Careless Bus Drivers.

    Thanking You,
    Vidhya Kuppaswamy

    BMTC Volvo Buses (500D and 500A) which are scheduled in the morning 6.45 am to 7.10 am are not stopping at the stoppage point (Salarpuria softzone). Inspite of passengers waiting for them at the stop, they pass over without stopping just to take over other Volvos. Also, they do not maintain their bus timings which leads to lot of inconvinience

    Hi I was travelling from BTM to basavangudi on 4-3-2012 at 9.30 am in BMTC 60 E bus(which goes to vijayanagar via basavangudi).Driver itself was collecting tickets.I paid him 50 Rs(as i was taking ticket for both me and my frend) from water tank to basavangudi.Rs 12 each was the ticket charge.Driver had to pay me 26 Rs change .He just wrote the change behing one of the tickets and dumped it in my hand which fell down(becoz of air) .Driver has seen this.However i manage to pick one ticket which had fallen down.couldnt pick the other one as it fell inside the gear box.Since bus was not at all crowded(hardly had 7-8 people i assumed that drivwer would remeber that ticket fell down and he had to pay change.However i had one ticket with me.While getting down in basavangudi when i asked for the change .Driver asked for the ticket .I gave him one ticket and told him the other one had fallen down which he has also seen.and i told him to pay my change back.But rather than paying the change driver started abusing me without even minding that i am a lady and started using slang wrds.At one pointof time even came to hit me.But none of the passengers came to our rescue all were dumb spectators.I have noted down the bus number -KA01F 3119.Its not the matter of change .I am not lodging this complaint for getting my change but to show people how drivers cheat people and misbehave using abusive words.Since there is no prper rules and no one to monitor these people they behave in this way without any fear.I request to take this complaint seriously and take appropriate action on the driver for misbehaving and cheating

    Today (2nd May 2012),
    me and my brother were riding bike on the way to our office, when we were on the right side and taking a left,
    we gave the indicators and horn while taking a left, where the bus driver ignoring all signs just grazed our bike, i somehow controlled the bike and asked the driver if he could not see the indicator and horn,
    instead of listening to that, he started giving his SLANGS to us and again PURPOSELY PUSHED our bike and moved forward, we lost control and fell on the road, with people watching the incident.

    This was the most SHAMELESS behavior i've seen, and dont know what action would be taken against the driver.

    I traveled along with my family on Saturday last (ie on 12.05.2012) from Shopper stop bus stop in Bannerughatta road to Double Road (near Shantinagara) by bus route no 369 and bus no ___ 2264. The time of travel was just before noon, ie around 12:00 noon. The type of bus was Pushpak bus, ie the bus was not having any conductor and only driver was doing conductor's job.
    When I boarded the bus, I gave Rs.100/- towards purchase of 3 tickets. Ticket fare was Rs.11 per head. Balance, driver suppose to pay back is Rs.67/-. He did not give the change immediately. He wrote something on the backside of the ticket and I understood that he will pay back the change later, may be towards my getting down time. Bus was full rush. Further, passengers who were getting in pushed me so that they can purchase tickets. I did not see the backside of the ticket what driver written there. During my getting down, when I showed the ticket and asked for the change, he gave me only Rs.17 said that I gave only Rs.50/- to him initially. To my dis-belief, when I saw the backside of the ticket now, he had written there only Rs.17. I was cheated. When I asked for my balance Rs.50/- he did not give. Absolute cheating.

    This is to bring to your kind notice about a particular driver by name Mr. Shivanna route no BIAL 4 against whom several oral complaints have been made about his arrogant behavior towards your valuable customers . It has been observed that he uses vulgar and unparliamentary words against computers more often. It brings doubt in the mind of commuters as to whether he is an employee of BMTC or a owner of BMTC to take law into his hands. When all the drivers stop near BSNL Indiranagar, this driver refuses to stop and over and above gives some stinking comment on the customers. He expects every one to get down where ever he stops especially in signal lights and if any person new to Bangalore or daily commuters request him to stop the bus in the subsequent stop eg. KFC Indira Nagar one is sure to take the brunt from him.This type of attitude is highy not appreciable in this service industry which will definitely bring in a bad name to your company which is other wise doing a wonderful job. Here i also like to mention about a driver Mr. Chandrasekar in BIAL route no 6 who has to be appreciated for his honesty to restore the hand baggage left behind in his bus at Domlur stop on his way back from Whitefield. When there are many good workers only a hand full of drivers like Mr.Shivanna will bring disgrace to your company. Hence i request you to take immediate action against Mr.Shivanna and also to change him from this route where we come across people from different states and country.

    Today morning at about 9.20 am Driver from Bus num KA 57 F 807 was driving rashly and didn't have any sense of traffic rules. While over taking from left side, hit my car mirror and also didn't have any regrets on his mistake and did even have courtcy stop the vehicle to know what happen s other god grace nothing was happen but i lost the mirror worth of more than Rs 4000/-

    in principally Govt vehicles should set an example for common people which they strictly follow the rules and regulation set by government which is not happening and I think no one even bother see the comments posted by the people, if that is case we are wasting our time my humble request is to take comments seriously and please take some serious actions on these mistakes from drivers. at least a prompt replay is appreciated Pranesh

    I take 500CA bus from silkbaord everyday to Bellandur. The ticket charge for this travel is 50/-. However bus no. KA 01 F 4614 charges 60/-. Even on asking the conductor about this additional charge he doesn't reply anything. This is unfair. Attached is photo of ticket. Please take necessary action on the same.


    Thanks
