What is TTMC (Traffic Transit Management Centers)?
The full form of TTMC is Traffic Transit Management Centers. TTMC are the places within the bus station where passengers can use it for their needs. Like when you visit bmtc station near you, you will see the stalls, parks, buildings, sitting areas, etc., all come under TTMC.
The main purpose of TTMC is to give benefits to the passengers.

- Check the vehicle’s health and control the services of the vehicle.
- Manage the parking areas near the bus stops.
- TTMC controls all the hygiene and cleanliness.
- TTMC runs health, financial, private, and government services within the bus station.
What is the need for Bmtc Bus Station?
As we all know, without a family home is just four walls only. Similarly, without TTMC BMTC bus station is only a piece of land. It works on that piece of land and makes it operational for the people.
TTMC provides all the facilities you are getting from ATM to water cooler. TTMC helps to improve the transportation of the public and encourages people to use road transport.
In terms of social and economical, all the centers and the room available for the officers to do the service within the bmtc bus station is managed by TTMC.
Inquiry offices, Ticket counters, electricity, water bill, security are under TTMC Departement.

Now, you will understand the benefits of TTMC; apart from the piece of land, all the things are developed and constructed by TTMC.
Difference Between Bus station vs Bus Stop?
The bus station is a hub from which all the bus stops are connected. A bus station is a place where all the operations related to transport are carried out. In comparison, a Bus stop is a place where people used to wait for their bus.
Both the bus station and bus stop come under TTMC. You will get different routes of buses from the bus station, but at the bus stop, you will get the same bus for the same route.
Every bus starts from one bus station, covers all the in-between bus stops, and reaches another bus station.
