Devendra Fadnavis – Former CM, Maharashtra:
Dedicated 50 new midi buses inducted in the service of Punekars & launched a scheme of AC bus travel for just ₹10 for entire day
I congratulate the entire team of Pune Municipal Corporation for this unique initiative to run midi buses in dense traffic areas.
Under Atal PunyaDasham scheme, Punekars can commute for entire day in just ₹10 in AC buses.
250 more such buses will be added soon. Highest number of electric buses are purchased by Pune in entire country.
Pune Metro works too in progress at great speed. We can expect a before time inauguration. Integration of Metro & Bus service in Pune should be thought upon for better, integrated commutation.
Keeping pace with the construction of new roads number of new private vehicles are also increasing. There is an urgent need of efficient public transport system. I suggest to think of Neo-Metro for HCMTR corridor. I’m sure GoI will assist in this & we can connect to Pimpri-Chinchwad easily
Pune Municipal Corporation undertook various development projects & initiatives like waste management, drinking water supply & public transport.
Many projects are 50% complete & some are in construction stage, but we are happy that we could initiate them!
