We are very pleased to get the Open Streets-Bengaluru event to the neighborhood of HSR Layout on the 20th September 2015.
Government of Karnataka (GOK) is introducing the concept of private vehicle free areas on specific days and timings to promote the use of sustainable means of urban transport like Walking, Cycling, Public Transport and to reduce the use of private vehicles like 2-wheelers, cars etc. for commuting.
HSR layout, because of its vibrant and active community organizations and its experience in conducting cycle days for a year has been identified as an area where this pioneering initiative will start on 20th September, 2015. From 06:00 AM to 09:00 PM on 20th September, 2015, the use of private motorized vehicles except public transport (buses) will be banned in all the 7 sectors of HSR layout. Only emergency vehicles such as ambulance, fire brigade, water tankers, garbage vehicles, police and public transport buses will be allowed to ply on the roads. BMTC will be introducing additional intra-HSR services and also providing special connectivity to important hubs like KR Market, Majestic, Shivajinagar etc.
Cycle rentals will be provided from 06:00 AM to 06:00 PM on 20th September, 2015.
We count on you to join hands with us and to celebrate a Sunday, free of glaring honks, smoke, smog etc.
Let us reclaim our streets and celebrate the joy of a livable HSR neighborhood.
