NMMT starts new AC buses on CBD-Bandra route

Navi Mumbai bus commuters can now enjoy a cool ride. The Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT) started air-conditioned bus services between Navi Mumbai and Bandra, which were inaugurated at the hands of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik.

NMMT has started AC buses for the Navi Mumbai to Bandra route. The services were inaugurated at the hands of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik. NMMT has purchased twenty Volvo buses out of which at present 5 buses will ply between CBD Belapur to Bandra every 30 minutes. The fare of the buses would be double. He further also spoke on the kind of services that the buses will provide.

Also present the State Transport Commissioner Deepak Kapoor called this a historical achievement. We also spoke with the MD of Volvo Pvt. Ltd. Akash Paasi. Apart from being air-conditioned the buses have other features too. With suspension in the buses, it would be less bumpy rides with capacity being more than regular buses. CCTVs are also installed in the buses. Also present during the inauguration was Mayor Anjani Bhoir, MLC Manda Mhatre, NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik, CIDCO Chairman Nakul Patil and NMMC Commissioner Vijay Nahata.
