Panvel was explained as the city of the future due to its geographical specialties and connectivity to other parts of the city. But the growth are still in its infancy and face major impediments towards developments. Panvel is becoming an important junction in terms of bus services that connects it to other parts of the state.

Bringing a blow to the Panvel residents, NMMT has cancelled the major AC bus services from Panvel to South Mumbai from February 1. NMMT has changed the route as from Kharghar to Manthralaya by avoiding Panvel. Reason for the change in route was explained, as NMMT suffered losses by running these buses. As the winter season in its high, people use to avoid AC buses. But according to the residents, coming months of summer season will increase the need for AC buses.Thus both NMMT and people will be benefited from the services through Panvel.

Earlier NMMT has provided six services from Panvel and the back to Panvel also. Three of the services were on morning to help people to reach their offices in important places of Mumbai such as Dadar, Manthralaya and other commercial hubs of Mumbai. Many such commuters will suffer due to these cancellations. Residents of Panvel request to restart the service, as this will help them to reach Mumbai safely and comfortably.

Uma Lela, a resident of Khandeswar, said ‘It was a shock for us to see the AC bus services are got cancelled. I’m working in Dadar and AC buses are the safe and best way to reach my office. Trains are crowded and uncomfortable for many peoples. Due to winter season the amount of people travelling is low. But in summer AC buses will be an essential agent to travel.”

Pundit Tandil, Traffic Superintendent of NMMT, said “AC buses from Panvel to Manthralaya has got cancelled and restarted from Kharghar. NMMT has sufferedlot of losses due to these buses. Thus the buses got cancelled. If there is a genuine need for AC buses, we will look into the matter.”
