Yesterday I managed to catch the bus 335E from Whitefield to Majestic (Kempe Gowda Bus Stand). Whats so special about this bus, well its one of the new Volvo A/C bus introduced by BMTC. The bus interiors looks very similar to the ones in Europe. Even Mumbai has few of these buses.
I heard from a lady in the stop that she was waiting for about 1hr in the bus stop and no sign of this bus. But in the opposite direction about 4 buses had gone.
That explains why they run in loss. So many people waiting for the bus for more than 1hr without any sign of it.
Is this a strategy by BMTC, anyway these people would wait let them wait. By the time they start some more people would come to the stop, which means more collection.
