KSRTC must start City Bus Services on ORR

February 3, 2023


On behalf of a large number of commuters, I request KSRTC Mysuru city authorities to introduce city bus services on Outer Ring Road (ORR).

The service should especially start from Bandipalya APMC junction on Nanjangud Road to Manipal Hospital junction on Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway as it helps a lot of people.

With this commuters like daily wage labourers, factory workers, IT employees and general public can avail easy transportation facility to reach various destinations (residential areas, industries etc.).

The services promise better revenue to KSRTC too. Hence, the officers must take up this issue seriously and do the needful.

    Buses can keep circling the 40 km ring road in clockwise and anti clockwise directions with stops at all major intersection .
    At end they can park at sathagalli Bus depot

  2. Kiran Maane says:

    This will help people commute from one end to another. We need buses to travel from Bandipalya circle, Manipal Hospital circle, Hebbal, Hunsur road, and Dattagahalli.

    Mysuru being a Heritage City ,it has an old world charm.Hence while planning metro for Mysuru , let the metro be constructed along the ring road for 43km and let the pillars be in the middle median of the road.Provide last mile connectivity to centre of the city by constructing bus stations at places where the ring road meets the major roads like Ooty road, NH275,Bannur road ,Hunsur road, Bogadi road and H.D kote road.This way the city will maintain its old world charm which will be spoilt if metro pillars are constructed inside the city.if needed the Autonomous Rail Rapid Transport System which china is testing (https://youtu.be/G8cGwYfr6vg )which runs on tyres on the road can be built inside city with tracks in middle of the road.This way the Heritage look of Mysuru ,area inside ring road can be maintained.Tourists love cities which have old world charm.

    Most buses go towards City don’t provide inter suburb travel. For example although very near to each other and frequently travelled, no buses from JP nagar to Vivekananda circle, BEML or Kuvempu nagara etc

  5. MURALIDHARA says:

    It is really a very pathetic condition in our Mysuru regarding city service. People lost their trust over KSRTC. Even they are not ready to fulfill the daily required needs of the community by operating services at needy hours, can we expect this ? Editor please address this issue.

    Addiction to car culture means, public transport suffers.
    Car culture is developed because Cars are a sign of privilege for idiotic Indians.
    @Sanj Jay Kini, the agent extraordinaire for doctors , has a plethora of suggestions, which all sound nonsensical, like his asserted information about Rheumatoid Arthritis.
    Indians are breeding like rats, and it is impossible to fix hence any problem.
