Types of Buses Banglore metropolitan transport corporation(BMTC) 
  • Red buses: Introduced w.e.f December 2011, the buses belong to new batch of ordinaries that have arrived in the city with BS IV emission norms-majority of them are red in colour and a few of them in the light blue colour
  • Suvarna: Silver coloured with red lining. Earlier they had Re.1 higher fare than ordinary. Since the revision of fares in June 2010, Suvarna and Ordinary bus tickets cost the same. Many Suvarna buses are now being re-painted into the white and blue color or converted into Big cirlce/Small Circle buses/Metro Feeder services

The service terminates on different points on the radius of the city core, to avoid congesting the city centre. These buses are numbered with a G prefix.
  • BIG Circle: These buses are white colored with BIG Circle written on the sides and it also has arrows painted in green, red, orange and black. These buses ply on ring roads connecting various parts of the city. Some of these buses are numbered with a C prefix and others are numbered with a K prefix(small circle on Inner Ring road).
