Another move by SWR which might affect lots of passengers ....YPR always had a great option of metro connectivity ,cabs,autos & BMTC. Banaswadi does not have good transport connectvity.

Based on whatever it is seen now BAND does not seem to be preferred but then passengers have no other option as well.
