The MyBMTC app has gained wide popularity among citizens of Bengaluru with over 76,000 downloads post its relaunch in December 2019.
The app has been a smart tool for the everyday commuters using the city’s bus service.
MyBMTC app identifies Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) buses plying on different routes and provides the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a bus stop.
Nihar Thakkar, the 16 year-old developer who has developed the app for the BMTC has been quoted by a national daily saying that the application is available on both Android as well as the iOS platform.
There are around 50,000 active users. Further, ‘Trip Planner’ feature of the mobile application has been one of the most popular features. Commuter can enter the origin and destination locations and can track the route they are travelling on. This feature is very helpful for commuters who are not new to the city or are unaware about bus routes, Thakkar added.
