If everything goes according to plan, the city will shortly have a Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) on the lines of Ahmedabad in Gujarat. After implementation of the programme, entry of two-wheelers and cars will be banned in the heart of the city, and public transport facilities will be developed in the city centre.

Plans have been made to shift the city bus stand to other places, and the place of the present bus stand will be developed as a historical place as it is adjacent to the  Palace.  The measures have been taken to keep the core area environment-friendly.

This decision was taken at a City Corporation Council meeting held in the city on Sunday, based on the Mysore Master Plan-2031.

City Town Planning director Chowdegowda explained the project in detail to Mayor M C Rajeshwari and Deputy Mayor Mahadevappa during the meeting. He further requested three to four months to make the project understood for the council members.

Apart from this, if the house owners have to obtain a completion report, they have to compulsorily equip their houses with solar power, rain water harvesting, and other environment-friendly measures. The move has been taken to protect the environment.
