Bangalore needs more volvos is more routes. for e.g.the Indira nagar-koramangala route is always busy and even a short shuttle would help reduce 100s of cars

I truly appreciate the efforts which are being taken in this regard.
They put in the effort, but somewhere down the line, something comes up and they mess-up, most of the times. Let us wish that atleast in some areas like you mentioned, they continue maintaining the shelters.

Yeah - 80% issues ends up in this.

Bangalore needs a dedicated dept to interact and collaborate with other depts like BDA/BBMP/BESCOM to improve the infrastructure..

For example - BBMP has widened the road near BTM Silk board to accommodate the bus stop... But - Electric poles are not yet shifted by BESCOM. So, the road widening done is of no use today :(

Hi, I agree with you. Volvo has shown people the comfort of travelling. There whould be mix and match of both volvo and non volvo. As I heard that volvo buses are maintened by factory people at depots, there should not be any break down.

Default This does not make any sense

There is a volvo bus route, 411-K between Bannerghatta National Park and ITPL. I think it goes via Koramangala IRR, and goes right in front of EGL.
BMTC VOLVO ROUTE DETAILS

But look at the timings!! First bus starts from Bannerghatta NP at 10:50AM!! Obviously office goers cant use it to go to office! There are two starting from ITPL at 1630 and 1730. While these two are more useful for office commute, it leaves commuters in the dark when it comes to reaching office!
