Watch: Bengaluru to train 1000 women to become bus drivers

The Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) is training 1000 women to drive buses and light motor vehicles. Previously, the city only had one female bus driver, Prema Ramappa Nadapatti, who had been driving buses for nearly a decade.

To conduct the training, the city will use funds from the Central Government's allotted Nirbhaya Fund, meant for women's safety and dignity. From these funds, they will also build lounge facilities specifically for women in the major bus stations, and install CCTV cameras in the buses.

The women will train on the driving tracks of the BMTC and will be allowed to apply to drive buses and taxis once their training is complete.
