Some time ago,I decided that I would travel by bus, and avoid using the car.... and as yet, I don't repent the decision. Buses are generally quite a comfortable way to travel in Bangalore. Bus stops have to be found and remembered...and routes discovered,too, especially when there can be no fixed timings for buses.
