Bengaluru has something different to share every day. A bus driver in Bengaluru has a rather unique vehicle – there’s a full-grown garden inside his Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation bus. Full of grass and new saplings inside the mini garden aims to drive home the message of ‘Save trees, save lives’. As a bonus, it also cools the interior of the bus to beat the heat.

According to reports, BMTC bus driver Narayanappa drives between Kaval Bylasandraa and Yeswanthpur every day. However, unlike other vehicles in the metropolitan city, Naranyappa’s bus has many plants and pots. ANI tweeted the pictures on social media and made the driver famous.

The tweet reads as, “K’taka: A Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation bus driver has kept plants in the bus he drives, which plies between Kaval Bylasandraa&Yeswanthpur in the city. Bus driver Narayanappa says,’Have been doing it for last 3-4 yrs to create awareness about keeping environment green”.

As we can see in the pictures, the mobile garden consists of several potted plants. They are placed on the dashboard and on a shelf behind his seat. There are also creepers growing inside the bus.

With pollution levels on the rise, this initiative makes so much sense.
