CHILDLINE 1098 Service » 1098 Events » To ensure safe journey for kids - Bangalore

CHILDLINE conducts workshop for BMTC drivers and conductors to sensitise them to make traveling in buses safer, secure and comfortable for students. In order to ensure that the bus journeys are safer, better and comfortable for the student community, CHILDLINE Bangalore in collaboration with Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) conducted a day-long workshop to sensitise drivers and conductors to the need to ensure a safe ride to schools. 70 drivers, conductors, depot managers and trainers working with BMTC attended the workshop.

Experts and officials from BMTC and CHILDLINE Bangalore interacted with the participants at the workshop. "Children between 5-18 years, most of whom are school and college students, form a huge segment of passengers who commute daily in BMTC buses. Through the workshop, we hope to sensitise our employees about the need to safeguard children's rights and issues as they travel daily in the BMTC buses," said GG Hedge, Principal Human Research Development, BMTC.
