Proclaimed as the corridor of the Konkan region, Panvel, functions as a junction between important parts of Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Pune. Thus Panvel plays a crucial role in managing flow of people, goods and services between these areas. Due to these reasons, transportation needs of the area have increased drastically. These increasing populations and transportation demands more infrastructure in the route, particularly in Panveljunction.

Bus stand in Panvel has an important function to perform as a junction of transportation. It is situated in the heart of the city and records every pulse of the people. Bus services from various parts of the state connect it with other parts easily. 70% of bus services available in Panvel bus stand are offered by outsiders, but not from Panvel. Because otherparts of the state are compelled to have bus services to Panvel, due to its importance as a junction. Thus Panvel got better connectivity not only to other parts of the state, but alsoto other states.

But bus stand in Panvel suffers due to its defects in infrastructure developments. Though huge numbers of bus services are crossing Panvel, the stand doesn’t have many capabilities to hold such public. Most of the area inside the stand is not asphalted or concreted and create problems of dust for many commuters. Especially, senior citizens are suffering due to dust in the area. It has also raised many health concerns in the area. For a long time residents and daily commuters of the city complain due to increasing dust problems.

Non availability of seats or resting place inside the stand is another important problem facing by commuters. Many travellers use to take rest in the bus stands, but Panvel bus stand will disappoint them. Though west side of the stand has some sitting arrangements, east side is completely neglected by authorities.

Mis management of garbage is a crucial problem faced by bus stand and travellers of bus. As stand is used by a huge number of public, it is producing such amount of garbage remaining for many months are spotted in many parts of the stand. Filthy conditions of toilets are irking commuters and put a question over the sanitation of the city.

Joel Mathew, a resident of Panvel, said Panvel “bus stand is pathetic, compared to bus stands in the city. For a long time residents are suffering due to many problems related to infrastructure developments. As a crucial junction of transportation, the problems of bus stand should be solved and developed accordingly.”

Sibin Y. das, a resident of Panvel, said “Buses has become an important part of our life. A huge public is flowing into the city. Now it is also expected to increase in future. Here comes the importance of transportation. We request that bus stand should be repaired with better infrastructure.”
