Bengaluru, May 25: The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) has introduced a new 'flat fare' system for passengers purchasing tickets from conductors.

Bengaluru: Operation of BMTC buses to be increased to 3500; new bus fares start from Rs 5

Apparently, to make up for the losses it had suffered during the lockdown, the BMTC had stopped selling the bus tickets from one destination to another and sold only the bus passes of ₹70 each, which people had opposed. The move comes days after BMTC faced flak for forcing travellers to buy daily passes worth Rs 70 for short distance travel.

Operation of buses will be increased to 3,500 from tomorrow in Bengaluru. Maximum 30 passengers/upto seating capacity will be allowed in the buses: Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation
