Bengaluru: The State government has decided to ban the entry of private buses into Bengaluru city between 7 am and 10 pm from February 1 to 5 in view of Invest Karnataka-2016 summit.

The global investors’ meet or Invest Karnataka-2016 is scheduled to be held between February 3 and 5.

The decision made on Saturday will ensure that long-distance private buses are kept away from the Outer Ring Road. They may, however, operate inside the city after 10 pm and up to 7 am.

Entry of trucks into the city has already been banned between 6 am and 10 pm on the designated days. The temporary measure is aimed at easing traffic flow during the global investors’ meet, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M A Saleem told Deccan Herald.

It may be recalled that the government had earlier planned to ban entry of both trucks and private buses round the clock from February 1 to 10, but it soon cut down the duration of ban to five days and also lifted it during the night.

The BMTC, meanwhile, made alternative arrangements to ferry passengers to the different satellite bus stands on the outskirts of the city, where the private long distance buses would be parked.
