Bangalore IMTC (with its own super) City Bus Station, Mysore (with its own super)
The terminal has 5 platforms and 20 bays. With a layover of 6 minutes, 200 buses can be handled by the terminal each hour. Each bay has a parking lane and an overtaking lanes. The platforms have ramps for passengers with disability. Sufficient overhang provides all weather protection.
The platforms have functionally segregated waiting and walking areas. This prevents conflict between these two groups of passengers.
Wide passageways and stairways are provided for passengers accessing the terminal
The entry into the terminal is segregated from normal traffic. Only buses can enter into the terminal. Each platform has a parking lane for boarding and alighting and an overtaking lane. The terminal can handle 240 buses/hour and at present 103 buses operate from the terminal per hour. This is well within the design capacity and ensures good movement of buses.
The design of the terminal is such that passenger/vehicle conflicts are minimized. Passenger entry is grade separated and lead towards the center of the bay. This reduces passenger movement conflicts. Physical barriers prevent waiting passengers from spilling over onto the vehicular lane.
Display boards are installed in Terminals & Bus Shelters

ITS - Advantages• Real Time Information for Passengers about Bus Arrival and departure• Reduction in waiting time for Passengers• Increase in patronage to Public Transport System• Reduction in traffic congestion• Improvement in efficiency of traffic operations• Improvement in environmental quality• Reduction in fuel consumption• Improvement in economic activity Taking assistance under JNNURM, KSRTC has taken up ambitious projects for Mysore.
Challenges in Implementing and Operationalising the ITS project for Mysore City TransportKey Challenges - Commuters Ensuring effective promotions & communications (ITS and its benefits). Setting clear expectations from ITS solution Other stakeholders Getting timely approvals and support from various local authorities like hospitals, tourist spots, railways, for deploying the PIS display boards 31
Key Challenges - Crew Initial resistance to change – fear of scrutiny Adherence to geo-fence routes Adherence to schedules and trips Ensuring multi-lingual trainings Finalizing training needs & material Initial In-effective training Revision of training material + process based on the feedback Re-training conducted for a large group after the changes 32
Way Forward Effective alignment of current business processes (including crew discipline) with ITS to gain from its advantages. Ensuring security & maintenance of in-bus equipments and PIS boards. Ensuring uninterrupted power supply at bus shelters (not owned by KSRTC). Effective usage of ITS (SOS alerts, MIS reports, instant geo-search) by Traffic Controllers, Operations Staff, Depot Management. Integrating ITS system within KSRTC existing IT solutions. Sustaining benefits of ITS – selection & identification of ITS data (what, when, where) and prioritize them according to business needs. Digital route information has enabled KSRTC to optimize its operations. ITS has enabled commuters with ETA, ETD, Destination information specially for tourists there is less dependency on external sources. 33
