PMPML’s old buses will now get a new appearance
Due to lack of adequate bus from the contractor, the PMP administration has given a new cover to the old buses that have never been run on the BRT route. The repair work of these buses has been delayed for many years, as well as repairing other machinery. However, due to the absence of the entire system which could be used to open the doors, the headache of officers and employees has increased. Passengers are being complained that the doors of many buses have been consistently in bad condition.
The first BRT route was started in 2010 in the city between Swargate to Katraj. During this period, more than 300 buses were received under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). These buses have doors on both sides. But on this pilgrim basis, the bus stations were not set up necessary for the BRT route. There was no such frequency of bus on this route. Therefore, these buses do not have access to automatic doors. Of these 200 buses were given to run a private company. After the order of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation, the PMP has to take the support of old buses. Therefore, the bus should not fall short on this route, so the work started immediately to implement the old buses system.
