Similarly, city bus service, Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), is also resuming a limited number of air conditioned bus services in the city.

"As business and employment activities are getting back to normalcy in Bengaluru city and suburban areas, to meet the travelling needs of the general public, BMTC is introducing 34 vajra air conditioned services with effect from Monday," said an official from the city bus service.

The air conditioned buses will make as many as 148 trips in a day from Kempegowda bus station, Banashankari TTMC and Central Silk Board to Hosakote, Attibele, Kadugodi, Hebbala and ITPL.
