WHY THE DE­POT IS IM­POR­TANT

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI MUMBAI -

Pan­vel is lo­cated in the mid­dle of Mum­bai and Pune and sur­rounded by Cidco colonies hav­ing a pop­u­la­tion of 8 lakh. Scores of peo­ple head­ing to hilly re­gions and Konkan from the city take the buses from Pan­vel de­pot.

Be­sides this, a con­sid­er­able num­ber of peo­ple take the buses from the de­pot to travel to Pune and other ar­eas for jobs.

It is the only bus de­pot in Pan­vel and Navi Mum­bai where thou­sands of com­muters ar­rive to take long dis­tance buses. Hence, there is huge crowd at reser­va­tion and par­cel coun­ters at the de­pot.

Apart from this, buses head­ing to Mum­bai, Pen, Thane, Alibaug, Kalyan, Uran, Vashi, Belapur, Alibaug,Mu­rudla also ply from the de­pot. Hence the de­pot is al­ways crowded in the evening.

“Till the new build­ing is con­structed, the au­thor­i­ties need to make tem­po­rary ar­range­ments for the pas­sen­gers,”

ATUL JAIT­PAL, a res­i­dent
