Passengers in the Belagavi district will soon have the exciting opportunity to travel on the Ambari double-decker bus. These unique buses, currently operating in Mysore under the State Tourism Department, have made their way to Belagavi and will soon be available for passenger service. There are plans to deploy this bus on the Belagavi to Saundatti Renuka (Yallama) hill route, pending necessary checks and approval from senior officials in the tourism department. The final decision is expected to be made in the first week of December.
During the winter session, the Ambari bus will be stationed at the Suvarna Soudha premises, providing convenient transportation for visitors. The bus recently arrived in Belagavi and was temporarily stationed at the central bus station.
Once the senior officials give the go-ahead, the Ambari bus will commence its journey in Belagavi. Additionally, the district collector has instructed the bus to be utilized within the Suvarna Soudha premises during the winter session.
Out of the total six Ambari buses, one has been allocated to both the Belagavi and Gadag districts. The bus is equipped with seats on the upper deck and lower deck, ensuring ample seating capacity. To ensure passenger safety, CCTV cameras have been installed at strategic locations throughout the bus.
With its towering height of approximately 19 feet, the Ambari bus is a sight to behold. Its arrival in Belagavi marks an exciting development in the district’s transportation options, promising a unique and enjoyable travel experience for passengers.
