In our cities the roads are over-crowded and congested and the surrounding air is highly polluted. In order to draw attention towards the deteriorating condition of cities’ environment, 4th January is celebrated as Bus Day in India.
Bus day is an attempt to create awareness and concern for the importance of bus as an important means of transport. The initiative was taken by the citizens of Bengaluru and was supported by MBTC (Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation), RRCA (Outer Ring Road Companies Association), Traffic Police and various other members of Praja.
The core idea behind the observance of this day is to highlight the effects of bus on our environment, traffic, health of public and individual in general.
