AC buses from Navi Mumbai to Bandra, Dadar, Santacruz

The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) plans to start three up and down air-conditioned bus services to the domestic airport in Santacruz and to Bandra.

The services will start at CBD Belapur. There will also be a service to Dadar. The buses will have a frequency of 10 minutes.

NMMC has already given orders for 20 Volvo buses and the first batch of 10 buses will be delivered at the end of June. So, the services should start from the first week of July. The fares and the schedule of the services hasn’t been decided yet.

The service, NMMC hopes, will attract those who travel to the city regularly in their cars. It expects a good response from those who travel in the first class compartments of local trains.
The airport service will be a boon to frequent fliers from Navi Mumbai as the minimum taxi fare to the airport is nearly Rs 500. NMMC officials said travelling time from CBD to Dadar or Bandra will be around one and-a-half hours.

They are also planning to start services to Mantralaya and are in the process of getting necessary approvals for that.

major project of Children's Park worth Rs 52 crore and other civic work worth Rs 20 crore are approved
In the General Body Meeting also major project of Children's Park worth Rs 52 crore and other civic work worth Rs 20 crore are approved. Besides, renting of shops of Shirvane's Shopping Complex proposal was initially not approved by any corporator, rather 13 corporators opposed it. "Ideally, once the proposal is opposed by maximum corporators, it should be disapproved by the House and should come back for discussion only after three months. But, ruling party took up the proposal in the same meeting and sanctioned it.
Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik denied all the allegations and said, "All corporators are unanimously approving all civic tender proposals, because corporation election will be held next year, and all of them will be answerable to the public.
