Women passengers travelling in BMTC buses will no longer have to worry or argue with men sitting in seats reserved for them – As seats reserved for women passengers in BMTC buses will soon turn Pink to stop male passengers from occupying them.
The government has taken this initiative following a series of complaints from women passengers who feel embarrassed to sit alongside anonymous men in the bus.
Transport Minister H M Revanna said,
Women passengers face embarrassment when men occupy their seats on BMTC buses. Such cases have also been reported often. Hence, all seats reserved for women on BMTC buses will be painted pink. All new buses will have such seats and seats on old buses will be painted when they go for repairs.
However, Revanna also clarified that men can sit in the pink seats if no woman is standing.
If the pink seats are successful in keeping men way, the system can be introduced across the state on KSRTC, NWKRTC and NEKRTC buses.
HEALTH CLINIC AT MAJOR BUS STATIONS
Apart from this, the BMTC has joined hands with the BBMP to open a health clinic at both Yeshwantpur and Kempegowda Bus Station (KBS) at a cost of ₹15 Lakhs each. Further, the clinic will offer service to both public as well as BMTC employees.
