An experiment by Electronics City Industrial Township Authority has shown that reliable and affordable public transport can convince people to put away private vehicles.

The authority launched free shuttle buses between eastern and western ends of Electronics City. Two buses plied in opposite directions "with most pickup and drop points having a bus passing by every 30 minutes".

The result was obvious in a message posted on the ELCITA website. "We thank you for your overwhelming support and are excited to announce that we have added two more buses. With these two additional buses we would be having a bus arriving at most pickup points at an interval of 15 minutes," the authority said. 

Commuters can use an app to track buses.
