Premium bus service from Thane to BKC


BEST’s Navratri Gift for Mumbaikars: Premium Bus Service from Thane to BKC | BEST

Bus commuters traveling between Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) and Thane can now enjoy a luxurious ride to their destination as the BEST is all set to start its premium services on September 26, marking the start of Navratri. The service will be a major respite as it runs during peak times, with limited stops. BEST has placed an order for the purchase of 200 buses. By the end of this year, premium buses will cover most of the city’s busiest routes.

The most striking thing about these buses are the fares. However, the rates are not yet final. But it is assured that fares will be cheaper than shared auto rickshaws and taxis, with the option of a monthly pass.

Passengers of premium bus services can pre-book seats for certain time slots via the Chalo app. The service is mainly intended to meet the demand of office visitors. After rolling out the premium service between the BKC and Thane, BEST has plans to expand to busy routes such as Powai-south Mumbai and Navi Mumbai-south Mumbai.

“The buses run on office routes during peak hours. The seats can be booked via the Chalo app and standing places are not allowed,” said the BEST official. You can relax and even charge your laptops and mobile phones while traveling. The Chalo app helps you track the bus, gives you information about occupancy and also allows you to buy seats in real time before the bus arrives at the stop, the official underlined.
