Let me enumerate the background of the Satellite bus stations of  Bangalore. There is one on Mysore road and I have seen one on Tumkur road and there must be few other.

In the absence of the Satellite bus stands the main bus stand at Kempegowda was fully cluttered with heavy vehicular traffic and many KSRTC busses missing their schedules by hours because of jams and lack of space.Many of the buses going towards Kerala were badly hit because of such commotions.

One of the constructive ideas of the Government was to bifurcate and a result of such options the Satellite bus terminal on Mysore road was born largely catering to services to Mysore and inter-state services to Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

The Satellite bus stand is some fifteen minutes from the Kempe Gowda bus terminus and some five minutes from the Deepanjali Nagar Metro Station on Mysore Road. Note that there is a metro station called Mysore Road station which is slightly farther but none the less close by.

The Mysore road satellite bus station has two components the front component for BMTC buses.All BMTC buses going towards Mysore road pass through the Mysore Road Satellite bus station.The component behind this is the KSRTC terminal with buses to Mysore, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and also may be to other places.

The Government deserves praise for designing and erecting such a wonderful bus stand which is the pride of Bangalore city.
