Public transport in Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) is run by the
Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC). There are
several Traffic Transit Management Centres (TTMCs) in the city.
TTMCs are transport terminals, providing passengers with a central
location to access multiple routes and forms of transport. Major
stations include Kempegowda Bus Station, Shivajinagar and K.R.
Market. Buses are broadly categorised as air-conditioned or
regular, which have separate fee structures. Single tickets can be
purchased upon boarding, while daily and monthly passes can be
bought from TTMCs, Bangalore One Centres and major stations.
The Bangalore Metro consists of a north-south corridor (the
Green Line) and an east-west corridor (the Purple Line). Single
tickets are bought in the form of tokens at station ticket offices.
Passengers can also purchase a rechargeable Namma Metro Travel Card
for multiple journeys. Metro-Bus Ticket (MBT) Daypasses are also
available, and can be used on both transport modes. Tickets can be
purchased at station ticket offices and at ticket vending machines
Officially recognised taxi services include Mega Cabs and Meru
Cabs. Rates are charged based on distance travelled and some cabs
will have credit card facilities. Prices may differ based on the
time of day.
