The proposed site is located along the boundary the Bangalore metropolitan area. Traffic surveys were carried out to know about the traffic and travel characteristics. Detailed analysis was carried out to arrive at the possible travel demand and capacity of the Park and Ride facility. Opinion survey was carried out to evaluate the willingness of commuters to use the facility and amount of fare to be collected. The resulting mode shift was estimated.
