BMTC Daily Bus Passes & Identity Cards

BMTC Daily Bus Passes & Identity Cards, facilitated many people in Bangalore city. But now a days, due to hike in bus fares, the prices of daily bus passes in Bangalore have also gone up. The daily bus pass price which was started with Rs. 25/- went up to Rs. 32/- and Rs. 35/- and now ie., effective 1st of August have come to Rs. 40/-.

BMTC has not only hiked the daily bus pass prices, but also the month bus pass prices. Normal people find it very difficult to move in Government recognized busses. It is a pity that BMTC does not understand that the prices would not be affordable to normal people who are below poverty level.

How to get Bus pass in Bangalore BMTC

Since people cannot accept both monthly bus pass hike as well as the daily pass price, BMTC has come up with a solution of introducing Identity Cards for Daily Bus passes. The commuter should get an identity card from BMTC Bus Pass counters wherein the photograph of the person with details such as name, age and the date of the pass would be mentioned. This identity card will be valid for 1 year from the date of issue. If one has this identity card, he will be eligible to buy a daily bus pass of Rs. 35/- and needs to show the conductor the identity card before purchasing the bus pass. If the commuter does not have the identity card, he has to pay Rs. 40/- and buy it.
