Mumbai, the bustling city of dreams, is all set to enhance its public transport system with the addition of 40 new air-conditioned premium buses. The Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) has taken a significant step to improve the commuting experience for residents and visitors alike.
Relief from Heat and Traffic Congestion
With the completion of the registration process, these new buses will soon hit the roads, offering a respite from the scorching heat and the perennial problem of traffic congestion. The introduction of these air-conditioned buses aims to make the daily commute more comfortable and convenient for passengers.
Enhanced Connectivity: Kharghar to BKC
The route from Kharghar to BKC will be one of the primary beneficiaries of this expansion. Commuters travelling along this route can look forward to the added comfort and luxury of air-conditioned buses. The increased frequency of buses, with departures every 30 minutes, will provide a seamless travel experience for those commuting to and from the airport.
Preparing for Deployment
The newly acquired air-conditioned premium buses will be temporarily stored at BEST bus depots until they are ready to be deployed. This ensures that the buses are maintained in optimal condition before they hit the streets, ensuring a smooth and reliable service for passengers.
Embracing Technological Advancements: BEST Chalo App
BEST has also embraced technological advancements to further improve the overall commuting experience. The introduction of the BEST Chalo App allows customers to conveniently book and pay for these premium buses online. This innovative app simplifies the process of availing the services, making it more accessible and user-friendly for passengers.
Enhancing Mumbai’s Public Transport Network
The addition of these 40 new air-conditioned premium buses is a step towards bolstering Mumbai’s public transport network. With approximately 3,300 buses already operating in the city, of which around 40 percent are equipped with air conditioning, the BEST serves over 33 lakh daily commuters. This expansion will provide an even more comfortable and efficient mode of transportation for the city’s growing population.
The introduction of these air-conditioned premium buses reflects the commitment of BEST to improving the quality of public transportation in Mumbai. With enhanced connectivity, relief from heat, and convenient technological features, residents and visitors can look forward to a better and more enjoyable commuting experience in the city of dreams.
