To reduce traffic congestion in Madikeri town, the district administration in planning to shift the KSRTC bus stand to APMC premises. Hundreds of buses enter the city everyday.

Traffic congestion is a daily affair owing to narrow roads. A large number of vehicles enter into the city  during weekends. Hence it has been decided to shift the KSRTC bus stand. If the bus stand is shifted to APMC premises, the entry of Mysuru-
Mangaluru buses inside the town can be avoided, said sources in KSRTC.

“To reduce the traffic congestion, the authorities introduce one-way traffic in the town. This increases the consumption of fuel. One -way traffic may give a temporary relief. However, in the long run, it will aggravate the situation,” said drivers.
