Free Railway Station-to-Bus-Terminus Shuttle by BMTC

I have often taken a bus to  the Majestic bus terminus, and rued the fact that I often have to carry my luggage over a longish distance, climbing the stairs and going down the underground passage, to reach the City Railway Station…and face the same problem on the return journey.

So I was very happy to read, in today’s Deccan Herald, about the free shuttle that the BMTC is operating between the City Railway Station and the Majestic Bus Stand, as also the Yeshwanthpur Railway Station and the Yeshwanthpur Bus Terminus.

According to a Deccan Herald news item, To help the commuters, BMTC has started a free mini bus service from City Railway Station to Majestic and Yeshwantpur Railway Station to Yeshwantpur Bus Stand.

However, when I visited the BMTC site to get more details, I could not find any reference to this free shuttle.

Why can BMTC not publicize this excellent initiative on their website, when they feel that not enough people are using it? They could also put up notices in prominent places at both stations, giving this information, making sure that the travelling public benefits from this very useful service, which should not be withdrawn due to lack of users.
