Peenya bus terminal is operational again 13.4.2018 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation began its services from Peenya Basaveshwara bus terminal from Thursday. The corporation would operate 60 out of 980 buses to other districts from the terminal. Services to more than 20 districts are currently operated from Kempegowda Bus Station (Majestic). These include Tumakuru, Uttara Kannada, Dakshina Kannada, Bidar, Raichur, Dharwad, Shivamogga, and Davanagere. While 46 buses departed to various districts on Thursday, the KSRTC is planning to move all 980 buses to the Basaveshwara bus terminal over time. Built at a cost of Rs 46 crore, the terminal was inaugurated in 2014. KSRTC immediately shifted several of its services to the new terminal, but passengers suffered due to lack of bus connectivity to the terminal from other parts of the city and were forced to take buses to the Peenya terminal from Majestic. This prompted the then Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy to withdraw services from the terminal. "Now, Namma Metro has solved the connectivity ...

Untangling the Majestic mess 24.3.2018 deccanherald.com
Untangling the Majestic mess Commuters in their teeming thousands struggling up and down narrow stairs; senior citizens pulling and pushing heavy luggage on long, unwieldy corridors; strangers to the city wandering without a clue. The citys busiest transport hub, Majestic is a gigantic mess. The ill-planned nerve centre of the railways, the metro and bus services is a poor advertisement for seamless inter-modal connectivity. Sprawling in its expanse, the KSR City Railway Station is a gigantic crowd-puller. One look at those overcrowded platforms, and you know there is not an inch of space left for more. Its foot over-bridges packed beyond capacity, its escalators too narrow for peak-hour rush, the Stations infrastructure cries for a serious hyper-boost. Cumbersome transition But the ordeal begins much before reaching the Station. The Majestic interchange Metro station has emerged as everyones favourite hop-off point to board either an inter-city train or a KSRTC bus. This is also where people heading to ...

Multi-modal transition, a huge challenge for the elderly, the disabled 24.3.2018 Deccan Herald - City
Multi-modal transition, a huge challenge for the elderly, the disabled Has the new walkway connecting the Majestic metro station with an existing subway that links the KSR city railway station and BMTC bus stand, made multi-modal transition easy? Not really, say senior citizens and those carrying heavy luggage. Commuters struggle carrying their luggage two to three levels up and down. It is a painful experience, particularly for senior and differently-abled citizens to scale the stairs and walk past the foot over bridge to change platforms. Says Naveen Kumar, an IT professional: "I have come across elderly people and women carrying children climbing up the crowded stairs, but fearing that they might fall. Wider ramps or slopes can be helpful, as the escalators here are also very narrow." Commuters who take the back side entrance (Platform 10) of the Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna(KSR) railway station also face the same set of issues. As the foot over bridge linking the City Railway Metro station and KSR ...

BBMP starts work on skywalk between metro, rail stations, ignores better options 6.3.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP has started work on a skywalk between Kempegowda Metro Station and the third entry to the railway station in Majestic, a facility which experts say will only benefit advertisers while inconveniencing passengers. In August 2016, the railways wrote to Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) to provide safe access to the third entry of Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna station. However, the BBMP soon intervened, stating that it has already called tenders to build a skywalk. Last week, Gandhinagar MLA Dinesh Gundu Rao performed the ground-breaking ceremony. Officials in the BBMP said the skywalk, to be built under PPP model, will be ready within five months. Passengers, however, questioned the need for a skywalk when the existing subway in front of Metro station can be extended to the third entry. "The hassle of coming out of the Metro station and climbing onto the skywalk can be entirely avoided by extending the subway, which provides connectivity at the same level," said Ramamurthy R, a civil ...
