Mumbai: Dedicated bus lanes at Worli, BKC closed

The dedicated lanes for BEST buses aimed at providing fast and efficient public transport have once again failed and shut down for good. The BEST has shut both its dedicated bus lanes — one at BKC and the other at Haji Ali-NSCI-Worli route. BEST officials confirmed that they are not operating the dedicated bus lanes due to several issues. Some BEST officials said that the growth in number of vehicles on the roads made it impossible for them to implement dedicated lanes for BEST buses. Currently, there are 32 lakh vehicles registered in Mumbai, which is leading to congestion on roads.
