On some routes, wait time for BEST buses now 45 mins

Mumbai: With BEST’s fleet shrinking steadily, wait time for buses on some routes has gone up to 40-45 minutes, said activists. From 4,200 buses in 2014 to 3,500 in 2017, the fleet is now 3,337 strong. In March, another 113 buses will be scrapped and no new additions are in sight. This will hit the frequency of buses, said BEST committee members.
