Rash Driving

Dear Sir,

The driver of 401 bus from NES was driving the vehicle rashly as soon as he left from NES bus stop. He did not give stops for the passengers to get down at their respective stops and scolded the passengers also. One female was about to go under the wheel while she was boarding the bus. On the road he was about to crash into every vehicle.

The Vehicle number is : KA 57 F1126

This happened on 25-03-2015 around 7:30 PM. Please do something about this and take action.

BMTC Ticket conductors and checkers charge for wrong reason, Misbehaving & Harassing Passengers

BMTC Ticket conductors and checkers charge for wrong reason, Misbehaving & Harassing Passengers.
Bus Route No : 500C
Bus Route : ITPL To Banshankari
Dated: 19.03.2015
Boarding point: Silk Board
Destination point: Mico Layout

My wife boarded the 500C bus from silk baord and the bus was jam packed, she got a seat at the back side.The conductor didnt
came backside for collecting ticket. After crossing udipi garden she got up from her seat and searched for the conductor, having Rs 20 exactly ticket price
in her hand. At that time the two gents ticket checker was there in the bus checking tickets.
When my wife was about to pay money to the conductor for the ticket then the ticket checker asked her to pay fine of Rs 500
without any mistake of her.They dont let her take the ticket and started shouting why she didnt have ticket.
The gents checker was so rude,misbehaved with my wife and even pulled her bag,they didn't hear to her as well.Though the commuters watched my wife was trying to take
ticket and realised it was the mistake of conductor indeed supported her but it was all in vain.
Ticket checking people ignored the voice of the commuter and asked her to pay the fine.
They didn't allow her to get down from the bus at Mico Layout Bus stop and didn't stop the bus.Then she called me and started crying as she was helpless and no one was
listening to her.After that I have to left office and chased the bus for 2-3 kms and rescued my wife giving Rs 500 without any receipt and after having a hot discussion
with the ticket checker and conductor.
It was not about Rs 500 to pay,but why we have to pay when we are not commiting any mistake.
Its the duty of the conductors to visit inside the bus and collect the ticket.
And the checkers didn't even undrstand whats the problem,they were corrupted and in a joint venture with conductors they are harassing travellers and looting them.
And how come a gents checker pulled a lady?Ther should be a lady checker.I dont have the bus no. or the conductor and checker name,otherwise i have lodged a complaint against them.
So I want BMTC to Inform all the conductors and checkers to do their duty properly then no one will suffer like this.
And BMTC management should monitor the checkers also.
Shame of BMTC!!!!!!

Arrogant TC ans Conductor

Hi There,

Today I had bad experience in BMTC. I Got into BMTC bus around 08:30 AM from Kundahalli gate to Whitefield with 2 bags in my hand as I came from my native (Mangalore) using KSRTC volvo service. I was holding the Rs.20 in my hand and waiting for conductor to issue ticket by the time TC came to to check the ticket and I told conductor was not issued the ticket for TC is told to me that it's my duty to go to conductor and ask for ticket, Tell me how it is possible to leave the bag in such a crowded place and buy ticket.
Later both TC and conductor started shouting at me and threatened me to take to police station for no fault of me, as my baby was sick and I need to rush back home I didn't protest much and they made me to pay fine of Rs.250 /-. When I checked with one of TC (Lady), she rudely behaved and told it is 10 times of the ticket but from Kundahalli to Whitefeild max 15 rupees as per it it would be 150/-. I have attached my ticket copy from majestic to Kundahalli gate which I have travelled using Vajra by paying 80/- and these people humiliated me infront of so many passenger that I have travelled without ticket. Such rude people. I course of this I also over heard TC saying that conductor has not issued ticket to 5 more people which clearly says that because of conductor's negligency I end up paying fine of 250 /- that they have stolen 80/- extra from pocket.

BMTC official's please look into below issue and also pay back my amount back. We are responsible for your employees fault.

1. Conductor is not issueing ticket on time.
2. Rude behaviour of your Conductor and TC's.
3. Using slang language to passenger.

Call that TC's, I will come to any police station today. Let me know who's fault is that.

I have attached Fine paid receipt and also the copy of ticket where it clearly states that I have travelled till Kundala HAlli.

Unjustifiable and harassing behavior from lady check inspectors

Today 24 Feb 2015. This is what happened in my wife's life which should not happen for any other passengers. My wife was on her way back home to Somupra from Koramangala. She got onboard to a G2 BMTC service(Bus Number KA 01 FA 2280) from Jakkasandra 1 bus stop. The conductor was at the rear and in another 800 meters the bus reached Jakkasandra 2 bus stop. In this one minute of time, the conductor was unable to collect the amount from everyone and there onboarded two female check inspectors. All of a sudden they grabbed the ticket rack from conductor, asked my wife and a few co passengers to pay a fine of Rs. 250/-. Even the conductor got fined by the inspectors. They were not ready to listen to the passengers and threatened my wife of taking to police station and used a few words in kannada which I can not mention here. She was forced to pay Rs.250/- along with co passenger.As my wife called me, I left my office and took her to BMTC office in Shanti Nagar and lodged a complaint with acknowledgement number BMTCC10113913. The officials in BMTC office were so helpful to us till now and waiting for the progress on this complaint. We work in private companies and does not mind paying Rs. 22/- for a ticket or Rs. 250/- as a donation to the inspector. It is very clear that the inspector did not follow the rules as they never collected the name or enquired for ID proof before issuing the fine receipt. I am not sure being a female how that inspector could behave without any sense. I agree if the bus had moved further by 2 kms or so but here is just a distance of 700 meters at sight and i bet no conductor in a bus full of rush can collect the amount in time. Guys, please make sense in our day to day work. I really demand an apology letter from the inspection officials on this matter.

Unauthorized Penalty

I am a regular user of bmtc bus. Daily I travel from geddalahalli hennur to marathahalli yemalur for work. Today I got into 330 bus from marathahalli bridge to get down at borewell bus stop. I was waiting for the conductor to come and give me the tickets. By the time the ticket checkers got into the bus and asked for the tickets, and I did not have. I told them the conductor did not come to collect the tickets. But they were not ready to hear me and did not allow me to get down at my bus stop. And they asked for the penalty to be paid. The conductor was asking me why I did not go to her to collect the tickets. I have never seen people to go to conductors to collect tickets in bmtc buses. Usually it is vice versa. I told them the same many times and they did not ready to accept it also. I am a regular traveller and never faced these kind of situation till now. And for 12 rs I don't need to do like this. And they allowed me to get down in a different bus stop which is far from my office and again I have to travel to reach office.

Bus route number is 330. Here is the details of receipt which is the only thing I have .

Receipt number : 23535 , U-14D, TR-34

BMTC crimes: Need camera not name tags

I experienced conductor in BMTC not giving proper change, sometime not giving tickets after getting money from public, stopping the bus in the bus stop and telling only for people traveling with pass and not giving exact rated ticket for specific distance.

Rather than giving name tag to conductor and driver. set camera in bus.
BMTC earning money illegally without giving proper service and using public's money

Rude bus conductor

We were three of us (girls) who took a bus from Bommanahalli to Electronic City on 6th Feb 2015 (Friday) . The bus Reg no. - KA01F4295, Bus no.-361. The bus conductor came to collect the money and gave us tickets for Rs. 57. We paid him Rs. 100 since we genuinely did not have exact change for 57 to pay him. He started asking very rudely that he wanted exact change. So we three showed him our wallet and told him we don't have change but we can give him Rs. 7 so that he can give us back Rs. 50 (balance). He started yelling at us and kept on telling us to get off from the bus midway. Finally, when we told we wont get off, he managed to get Rs. 50 from his purse. And even though we gave him Rs. 7 change, he was telling it is only Rs. 6 and we paid Re. 1 again. The bus conductor was bulky and had a dark complexion. Pls take action so that customers don't face such a behaviour again.

Date and time was : 22-01-2015 9:14 PM .The conductor was very rude and behaved badly at me . I took ticket to Meenakshi Temple and was taking the purse from my bag to pay 14/- rs. He started shouting at me to make it fast as he needs to go home early.I asked for 1 minute to check the exact change of 14 /- RS .He started scolding me again so badly . With no time i gave him 20 Rs so as not to waste his time by searching for the change of 4 rs. He gave the ticket but he didn't give the balance . When i asked for the balance he said I wasted his time and when he get change he will give my balance. I was totally irritated by this and when i asked the balance again while i was getting down from the bus he shouted at me .He was so arrogant and didn't even know how to behave at passengers.

Misbehave of conductor and Driver

Hello Sir,

I would like to share my experience from BMTC bus running between Ejipura and Shivajinagar depot. I got into bus 141E in Monday evening from Mayo hall Bus stop to Ejipura 24th Cross. Usually it charges INR 17. I paid Rs 20 and conductor didn't give the balance but he made a note on the other side of the ticket as '3'. When I reached my stop, I asked for the balance, but he told he doesn't have change. In fact I saw changes in his hand a moment before. After a minutes arguments he was ready to pay Rs 2. So I asked him to show his Bag. He opened his bag and showed, it didn't have any coins. I don't know where was all the coins gone?! During this time the conductor starts bullying me and driver dove the bus to the next stop. Conductor told me he will get my balance once they reached last stop. By that time we already passed the stop which I was supposed to get down. The conductor shouted like 'THIS IS NOT YOUR KERALA...' etc. Since I am new to Bangalore I didn't get what he said exactly. Both conductor and Driver shouted at me and blamed me in front of other passengers.

I may neglect if it is happen only once after I came to Bangalore. But I am facing same issue in every week, at least three times in a week with this HIGH intensity. HUMILIATED ENOUGH. The conductors in BMTC buses NEVER give the balance, they always write a NOTE on other side of ticket and they smoothly forget give the money, if we are not asked.

Altogether, 50% of the BMTC conductors I met so far are THIEVES. I never say everybody. I am sure the conductor who gave the attached ticket is a THIEF. I don't want my money back, but I need justice for every passenger in BMTC buses. This is not single event, its reported in NEWS PAPERS on a daily basis. But still everything is same.

Kindly do needful

Behavior by BMTC crew

Dear Sir/Madam,

My compliant is against the bus conductor in bus number KA 57 F 500. The bus operates between banngerghatta road to majestic. Sometime back I boarded this bus at Bilekahalli. I handed over 50 rupees to the conductor. The fare is 12 rupees to Diary circle. The conductor did not have the change neither did I have 2 rupees change.

When I politely told him that I do not have change, he started yelling asking me to get off the bus. This behavior was not expected of the conductor. I have been traveling in this route for more than 7 months now. I hand over the 2 rupees to conductor even without them asking whenever I have the change. I do understand that the conductor might sometimes run out of change just like passengers do. But behavior like this is not expected. I am appalled by his behavior. I even told him that there was no need for him to shout. Yet he continued yelling.

I request you to train your bus crew to speak properly to the passengers so that such incidents can be avoided. Nobody wants to start their day like this. It is the duty of the bus crew to treat the passengers well.

Tickets not being issued

BMTC bus conductors are taking 2Rupees lesser than the actual ticket fare and they are not issuing the tickets. For example i took a bus which goes from hebbal to kengeri, i climbed at badrappa layout busstop i was supposed to go to BEL circle. As i was waiting for the conductor he did not turn upto me. I couldn't wait longer smi decided to go to him directly. I gave him 10rs thinking tht the tickt fare would be 6rupees. As he did not give me any ticket, i asked him the ticket fare he said it's 12rupees. I took out 2 rupees more and asked fir the ticket. Mean while the bus reached BEL circle. The conductor said ur stop has come you get down. I did not have any other ootion than to get down. No ticjet was issued to me and the conductor took my 10 rs. This is happening in each and every BMTC bus. If actual collections of the commuters is showed to BMTC the ticket fares would also come down. Please take necessary action.

Thank you.

Delay in arrival due to extra waiting time at bus stops

I wanted to complain about this since long time. Finally I decided to do it today.
As a bangalorean every one is aware of the huge traffic in the Marathahalli-ITPL route.
The frequency of BMTC Volvo bus in this route is very high and the charge they collect for this is 3 times that of an ordinary service.
When we pay so much for the travel, least expectation is to reach on time. But, these days most of the BMTC buses stop at every bus stop atleast for 5 -10mins waiting for the passengers. 5-10mins at every stage adds on to the already expected traffic jam in this route, thus further delaying the travel time and causing a lot of inconvenience. Whenever we plan to attend a meeting or an urgent appointment, it is better not to take these buses as we never know where the bus will stand idle..This kind of behaviour from BMTC volvo is intolerable owing to the fare they collect from us.

This is happening with almost all the Volvo buses flying in this route. Since the frequency of the buses is high in this route, BMTC should intruct drivers/conductors to adhere to the timelines and set a reasonable to target so that they don't behave in this manner.

I do not know how to raise this concern. Hence, raising it in this forum.

Time: 6:15pm
Date 10/12/2014
Bus No: 334E
Today when I was traveling from Marathahalli to Whitefield, there was some argument between one guy and conductor regarding signature on bus pass. Suddenly at Kodi bus stop conductor took that guy near to the driver seat. After that driver started hitting that guy. So I stand up from my seat and tell the conductor how they can hit someone. That moment driver came to me also and slap me and grab my neck. Somehow I was able to came out of that bus otherwise they might have hit me more.

Using rude words with girls

Respected Sir,
Iam the Student Of Christ University, persuing Bcom Evening Course. and my class starts from evening 4:30-8:30pm. On 10-12-2014, that is on wednesday. My friends ,and me from christ university bustop we boarded up in Chandapura Bus. And all our friends has a pass, in that only Bcom is mentioned and Evening is not mentioned and it is not mandatory also. When the conductor came back side of the bus for ticket, we as usual showed our student passes. He asked us the following questions:
1. The Student Pass is valid only from morning 9:00am to evening 6:00pm
2.All the students who has such kind of student pass , they should get out of the bus.
3. He asked us, in student pass Evening is not mentioned only Bcom is mentioned so the students are cheating the governament . i mean the transport corporation,

Other Thing is that in the same bus, one of my friend ,a girl, she was standing in the very front of the bus. The conductor went there and he asked for ticket and she showed her student pass. He spoke the following words to that girl:
1. You are not at all going to college.
2. You are cheating your parents and going for dating with some guys.
3. you dont have common sense, and showing the invalid pass.
4. Get out of the bus.
5. If you give police complaint also i dont care about that.
6. Iam not scared of any one.
7.Do what ever you want, i am not afraid of anything.

In tha gap between collecting tickets in the back side of tha bus and before coming to this girl, he asked other two girls also to get out of the bus , the reason is pass.

The reason is KAO8952

The Following are my questions?

1. Is there any rule called - The student Pass is not valid after 6: 00 PM. Then What is the situation of the evening college students?
2. Is that Mandatory to mentioned Bcom Evening in the pass?
3. Is that words spoken by the conductor is ok , according to you?
4. If Such Kind of Conductors are there in service , Then where is the place for girl's freedom?

I hope you will give a satisfactory judgement legally/

Thank you:
