Mumbai local, private buses come to rescue due to ongoing BEST strike

An array of public transport in Mumbai came to the rescue of Mumbaikars stranded due to the ongoing BEST strike. Both Western and Central Railways, Metro rail and MSRTC ran extra services while private buses were running too. App-based aggregators, kaali-peeli cabs and auto rickshaws used the situation to their advantage. However, complains of over charging and surge pricing during peak hours did emerge.
