Bengaluru sluggish in adopting clean fuel 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Despite the rapidly worsening air pollution, the city and state authorities appear to be sluggish in adopting the fuel considered a cleaner alternative to petrol and diesel. Last year, the Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) commissioned four Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuelling stations in the city with hope of rapid adoption. But a year later, there are only 250 vehicles retrofitted with CAG kits. In contrast, 72 lakh vehicles use petrol and diesel, blamed for the acrid smoke that dirties the clean air and severely impacts the health of those breathing it. With the city struggling to get a handle on the pollution issue, authorities blame lack of infrastructure to rapidly adopt CNG. "The support system is inadequate," observed Transport Commissioner B Dayananda, while talking to DH. Among the four fuelling stations set up by GAIL in September 2016, the one in Laggere off Magadi Road alone can refill 1,000 CNG vehicles a day. Compressors in the station are capable of delivering 1,200 Standard Cubic ...

Metro, BMTC fares likely to be reduced on Traffic-less Day 13.12.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Fares of Namma Metro and city buses in Bengaluru, including Volvo buses, are likely to be reduced on second Sundays starting from February when the government will initiate its Traffic-less Day programme to check population. Transport Minister H M Revanna said the decision was taken to encourage public transport and regulate private vehicles. "Fares of tickets and daily passes of the BMTC buses as well as Namma Metro fares will be cut on second Sundays. Encouraging the public transport is the best way to check pollution in the city," he said. The minister, who spoke about the plan for the third time in two weeks, said discussions were going on with officials on the reduction in fares. "We are also talking with metro officials on cutting fares," he said. Noting that about 72 lakh vehicles have been registered in the city, Revanna said if 62 lakh vehicles stay off the road for a day fuel consumption, as well as pollution, will come down. "Autorickshaws, taxis and maxicabs will not be affected by the ...
