Road com­mute in Mum­bai to get smoother

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

With two apps in the pipe­line, com­mut­ing on road in Mum­bai is likely to get much smoother. The first app, which is a part of the In­tel­li­gent Trans­port Man­age­ment Sys­tem (ITMS), is likely to be launched by the BEST un­der­tak­ing around Jan­uary 2019. Just like the in­di­ca­tors on rail­way plat­forms, the app will give ex­pected time of ar­rival of buses at a par­tic­u­lar stop. More­over, it will also give up­date on bus oc­cu­pancy. While, this app will help com­muters to opt for more con­ve­nient modes of trans­port, the other app will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on park­ing space for pri­vate ve­hi­cle own­ers. This too is a pi­lot project wherein book­ing, re­serv­ing park­ing slots in the most crowded ar­eas of South Mum­bai will be made pos­si­ble.
