In a statement, the central government said that the implementation of the project will provide the much-needed additional public transport infrastructure to Bangalore.

It stated that the project will streamline the urban transportation system in the city which is stressed due to intensive development, increase in the number of private vehicles and heavy construction.

The move will provide people a safe, secure, reliable and comfortable public transport.
