BMTC has planned a Bus Day on Thursday, Feb 4, 2010 with a particular focus on 2 corridors – Hosur Road and Old Airport road. The idea is to take the bus on that day (if you aren't already taking the company or any other bus) and see the difference it will make to traffic congestion and air quality. Vehicle speeds and emissions will be monitored on the corridors to quantify the difference in order to further encourage people to travel by public transport.

Mithila, an urban planner from MIT (Cambridge, USA), is driving this initiative along with our government. Her goal is to use smart planning based on data collection to alleviate the Bengaluru traffic and pollution situation.
