Tips for searching

  1. Some places have more than one name, for e.g., Kempegowda Bus Station is commonly known as Majestic - try searching for all the names.
  2. If you do not find a bus route for a place, try searching for nearby places. Many times there are good bus services to some areas but not to nearby ones. For instance, Agara (Sarjapur Road) is a major junction for buses; however HSR Layout which is adjacent does not have a very good bus service.
  3. Use the hints in brackets to distinguish between two different places having the same name, for e.g., Agara (Kanakapura Road) and Agara (Sarjapur Road).
  4. The last column that you see in the search results does not necessarily enumerate the bus stops. Rather it traces the detailed route taken by a bus number. The actual bus stop names may vary slightly.
  5. The special services such as Pushpak and Volvo are distinguished by the following prefixes in the bus route number: 'AS' for Atal Sarige, 'B' and 'C' for Big Circle, 'CH' for Chakra, 'G' for Big 10, 'J' for Janapriya Vahini, 'K' for Chikka Circle, 'P' for Pushpak, 'V' for Volvo, 'MBS' for Metro Bus Service, MF for Metro Feeder and 'TR' for Trunk Route. These may not be very up to date.
  6. The bus timings and frequency vary much faster than the route numbers. Further buses do not always adhere to the stipulated timings. Hence it is not possible to provide accurate and up to date information on the bus timings.
  7. The route plan determined by the Shortest Distance method may not be directly useful since it tends to generate too many hops. It is included in the search options for the sake of completeness only.

You have done a good stuff. If you could show this routes on a map it will be much more easy to understand. A single picture is more than 100 words to explain.

Hello, The Site is very useful. But I feel, You have to Upgrade it. Just for a check, I searched for Buses from C.V.Raman Nagar to Hebbal. The easy ways are through Sivaji Nagar, and through Outer Ring Road. It has not shown both the routes. So please check for problems like this. Rgds, Kishor.

Hi, An excellent job done. However, there is some explanation needed, if you will. If you check bus routes (300,301 series) you will find mention of cantonment rly station for stops. However, none of the buses touch this spot as they take a left turn to Queens Road in front of Veternery College (due to one way restrictions). May be you had wanted to mention CSI stop as nearest for Cant. Rly Stn, (just like ITC for area Cooke Tn.). If that were so, I suggest you have name of the area, if different from bus stop, in brackets, with a remark that (Name of the locality or facility is given in bracket. This will help folks from outside state. Regards, Ramji.

This is super cool. However, the look and feel is not upto the marks. Perhaps we can improve it so it is more appealing to people. Also, we can add Maps for all these routes. What do you think? I'm into web designing and development. :)

@Kishor: Thanks for checking the site. The issue is that if there is a direct bus route between two locations, then the Min Hops and Via Terminal Stations Only metrics would give the same result, namely the single hop route. In your example, MBS6 is a direct route between C V Raman Nagar and Hebbal. The Max Route Availability metric attempts to optimize based on the number of bus routes available between the locations. In your example, there seems to be only one bus route, namely 314A between C V Raman Nagar and Shivajinagar, and hence it was not chosen in the resultant route plan. The Shortest Distance metric does show the Outer Ring Road route that you expected.

@Ramgopal: Good suggestion. There was a plan to consider the oneway restrictions in the search results. However it has not taken off yet :( Meanwhile, please point out more such discrepancies - it will be useful when the feature does get added!

@Tarun and Ravi: The site was designed mostly from the point of view of good search results and minimal clutter. Several people have suggested the idea of showing the routes on a map. However that requires significant community support and commitment. Many of the locations on the site are not listed on any public maps! Even if they are, there are atrocious spelling mistakes which make it difficult to identify the locations. Personally also I'm not convinced that adding a map would be much of a value addition, compared to the effort involved in providing accurate map data.

this is a good site and pretty useful for bus travelers. It would be more meaningful if one could include bus frequecy (time is not possible). One can keep frequency of bus per hour or so (based on how many buses ply on that route.
