While the suburban train service to Hoodi has helped a lot of people traveling to the IT hub of Whitefield, there is no last-mile connectivity from Hoodi railway station. Due to this, there is a huge auto drivers' mafia who hoard upto 5 people and race dangerously (to be back in time before the next train arrives) to the bus stops of KTPO & ITPL. In the absence of any other options and no traffic police to control them, IT employees are at the mercy of these auto drivers who are charging exorbitant rates (Rs.160 for a 3km ride!) while the RTO approved meter fare is just Rs.38!
While two-wheeler rental services like Bounce/Yulu have helped, their numbers are far too less. Last mile connectivity in the form of BMTC mini-bus services from Hoodi railway station is the need of the hour here.
@PCMohanMP sir, while we sincerely thank you for your efforts and success in bringing the sub-urban rail service to Hoodi, we request your help in providing last-mile connectivity from Hoodi station.
I request you to please sign our petition requesting @PCMohanMP and BMTC to provide last mile connectivity to/from Hoodi railway station, atleast during the morning and evening train arrival times as it will benefit thousands of IT employees who travel to Whitefield by train.
