BANGALORE: Bangaloreans pay the highest bus fares, while Chennai's citizens pay the lowest.
Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) charges the highest basic minimum fare across states. BMTC recently hiked its fares post polling day in Karnataka by 15% across services. The basic fare for ordinary bus service is Rs 6 for the first stage - a stage is a 2km stretch of a trip, and a standardized unit for public bus transport systems in India. The standard reason for the hike is the spike in diesel rates.
Though the city shares its spot...
BMTC sighted the loss as reason for increasing fares due to Diesel rate and also payment of DA to it's employees. The same reasons were quoted when fares were hiked when BMTC was making profits.The corporation does not have a realistic analysis to increase fares. Bangalore people are a harassed lot both by BMTC and AUTO. Both resort to frequent hike in fares.
