    Traffic is a nightmare on Bangalore roads, adding innumerable hours spent in commuting to and from work. The public transport network, unfortunately, does not cover all parts of the city and people have to depend on self or others' vehicles to get to a point from where they can avail public transport. I have been offering rides to working professionals on my route for close to 6 months now. My trip report indicates that this has helped reduce 893 kg of CO2 over ~2300 miles. This removes about 3 private/personal vehicles from Bangalore roads daily.
