Commuters must learn etiquette: Metro staff 26.6.2017 deccanherald.com
People are elbowing and jostling, and need to learn how to use the Metro better, staff said a week after the service was extended to southern Bengaluru. The trains are packed with the completion of Phase 1, with many commuters complaining of difficulty in entering and exiting the coaches. Staff at the Kempegowda interchange station said lack of discipline among riders had become a big headache. "We have a tough time handling the crowds on the platform. Though there is a queue for those exiting the train and another for those getting in, many people are unruly and argue with us," a staffer said. Passengers who stand away from the doors have to struggle and wade through the crowds to alight, a guard on Platform 3 said. Many commuters ignore instructions, and block the doors, he observed. 'Give them time' Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd spokesperson U A Vasant Rao said queues would be introduced at other stations as well. "For many, the Metro is still new. Slowly they will learn the etiquette," he ...

Glitch grounds Namma Metro on Green line for two hours 25.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
A technical glitch grounded Metro trains on Green line with the authorities suspending operations between Yelachenahalli and RV Road stations for nearly two hours on Sunday. With the frequency of trains being 15 minutes on Sunday, hundreds of commuters had bought tokens for their journey. The hiccup started at Yelachenahalli station when the train did not move from the station. Passengers had to wait for over half-an-hour before they realised that the operations have been suspended. Metro staff then refunded their tickets and let them out of the station. Commuters at JP Nagar, Banashankari and RV Road stations had a tough time as many were made to wait for about 45 minutes on the platform before they got the refund. Anand M S, a commuter, complained that he was not allowed to exit JP Nagar Metro station though there were no trains. "Green Line is down and they won't let you exit the station to find another way to travel. Had to pay for another trip to get out of the station," he tweeted. At the RV Road ...

Beyond Metro feeder buses 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
After considerable delay, the Namma Metro Phase 1 has finally kicked off with much fanfare. But lost in the euphoric overdrive of the launch is a grim reminder: The Metro's 42-km network caters only to a fraction of 1.3 crore Bengalureans, the vast majority of who still rely on BMTC buses for public transport. The inevitable question, then, is this: Shouldn't the focus be now on restructuring and rationalising BMTC bus routes, a network to address acute problems of last-mile connectivity in areas not touched by any Metro line? Despite financial worries, the Transport Corporation has made a start by revitalising the feeder bus network around Metro stations. 200 feeders Not less than 200 buses are now part of the feeder network, taking Namma Metro commuters to locations close to the stations. But it ought to go beyond feeders. BMTC Managing Director Ekroop Kaur agrees. "We will have to realign the routes. There is no point running parallel to Metro routes. We are in the process of restructuring, with ...

Last-mile connectivity issues still unaddressed 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Commuters in the city heaved a big sigh of relief when the Metro Green Line stretch opened recently, connecting Mantri Square Sampige Road with Yelachenahalli. Are people satisfied or do they want improvements in service and other connectivity options? Rachan Patil, a resident of Rajajinagar, gives a measured response: "Metro has given BMTC a run for its money as many feel the ticket price of Metro is less than BMTC Volvos. But Metro has also its disadvantages. Many still consider the bus to be a reliable source of transport as it reaches many places where Metro can't." Since work locations are scattered, he says, people still give thumbs up to bus services. "BMRCL should complete other phases as early as possible to lessen the traffic congestion. Personally, I prefer Metro as it is eco-friendly, safer, can reach the destination in a short time and is less stressful compared to road transport," says Patil. On connectivity issues, he suggests bike rental services at every docking station. Instead of ...

Skeletal suburban rail network needs connectivity too 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Outside the glare of the Namma Metro and BMTC services, a skeletal suburban rail network continues to find more takers in the city. Yes, the proposal for a full-fledged network is stuck in cost-sharing issues between the Centre and state. But the huge rush in the few local trains run under the skeletal system is an indication that the suburban rail will be the real game-changer. The IT crowd heading to Whitefield from Bengaluru City and Baiyappanahalli have already found the few local trains a far quicker, cheaper and safer option than BMTC buses or personal vehicles that get stuck in the chaotic road traffic. The launch of the Hoodi halt station near ITPL has helped the employees streamline their commute to office and back. On the Salem line, the Yeswantpur-Hosur-Yeshwantpur services are also getting more popular among the IT crowds. For those heading to software firms in Electronics City, alighting the train at Heelalige station makes perfect sense. This station is barely six km away from the IT ...

BMRCL gets notice for Hindi signboards 23.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The Kannada Development Authority has sent a notice to the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) seeking explanation for "violating the rules" by displaying signboards in Hindi. Quoting an article published in Prajavani, the sister publication of DH, the authority cited two circulars and the government notification on nameboards in shops and commercial establishments to note that BMRCL was violating laws. "This move shows unwanted imposition of Hindi and the BMRCL should reply to the notice within seven days," the authority said.

Meanwhile, the opposition against "Hindi imposition" moved from the digital sphere to the world outside with the Kannada Rakshana Vedike calling for a protest at the BMRCL office in Shanthinagar on Friday.
