It's Awesome










As we know Traffic congestion is a growing problem in Greater Pune (Pune, Pimpri and Chinchwad). The problem has been accentuated by the lack of even & convenient bus transport systems.

Ironically, Greater Pune has more private vehicles than the megapolis of Mumbai.

Solution - An increase in number of public buses with greater frequency periods will certainly encourage more Puneites to use public transport, thereby decreasing the traffic levels in the city.

In order to make this happen, several business houses, NGO along with PMC has come forward for Public Private Partnership to work for this cause.

The project plans to supplement the existing 1,500 strong bus fleet of the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) with an additional 1,500 buses on Thursday, November 1, 2012.

Great initiative! Even in hyd, RTC corporation is in losses but the busses here are jam packed especially in the mornings/evenings. I myself travel to college on bike after experiencing near death situation while i was hanging from footboard.

Bus Day was good initiative. But since it was sponsored by 1 Media group, other media didn't take note, or didn't highlight it.BTW is it true that Politicians from Pune (like Kalmadi and Pawar) didn't allow Public transport to grow to create a situation favorable for Private Vehicles manufacturers in Pune like Tata, Bajaj, etc. Kalmadi even has stake in some Vehicle dealers shop I guess.
