The Kharghar unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demanded to extend the BEST bus service to both domestic and international terminals in Mumbai up to Kharghar. At present, the BEST is running an air-conditioned bus service between the Vashi bus depot and the T1 and T2 terminals of Mumbai airport.
Brijesh Patel, President of BJP Kharghar, has written to PMC mayor Kavita Choutmal and requested to take the demand to the BEST.
According to Patel, the BEST has started a New AC bus service from Vashi Depot to the airport recently.
It is a 24 hours service, and the frequency is one hour from both ends. The bus goes to both the terminals (T1 and T2) and takes around 1 hour and 15 mins from here. While there is no additional charge for luggage, the fare is just Rs 150.
On the contrary, if anyone goes by cab, the charges vary from Rs. 600 to Rs. 1000.
“It will be a great help for residents of Kharghar including Belapur, Nerul, Juinagar and Turbhe en routes,” said Patel.E-bus tender: Bombay HC seeks BEST reply on plea by JBM Ecolife Mobility Pvt Ltd
