Bengaluru auto drivers claim free bus rides for women have hit their earning
Auto drivers in the city claim that they were losing business further. Most auto. drivers in the city have been seeing a decline in auto bookings, especially on ride-hailing applications, allege autorickshaw drivers‘ unions.
This comes even as the ridership in RTC buses across the State has added nearly 20 lakh passengers per day, a major chunk of it in the city, ever since the launch of the scheme on June 11.
However, this also comes amid many groups of women such as garment workers-nearly 3 lakh strong in the city-complaining of an inadequate BMTC network and thus being denied the benefits of the scheme.
