The aim behind this proposal is to reduce traffic congestion on city roads which has been proving a big head ache to the traffic cops as well as the residents. Available land would be utilised for the construction of bus bay and in case any private land is in between, then talks will be held to facilitate the project. If the proposal is to construct a bus bay near Ballalbagh by retaining the tree in the area, the bus bay at Bunts Hostel Circle may come up close by the existing bus shelter.
The bus bays will be full-fledged in the sense that there would be drinking water and public lavatory facilities too. It is said the MCC was also planning to vacate some unscientifically constructed bus stands. Presently the only bus bay of Mangaluru is at Bavutagudda. Though rules make it mandatory for all buses to enter the bus bay, many buses move ahead without adhering to the rule.
