Getting tech savvy
Taking a cue from cities like Singapore and New York, Mumbai's BEST undertaking is likely to soon install bluetoothenabled services in its 4,027 buses. “The bluetooth-enabled services would be of much help to our nearly 50 lakh commuters. The proposal is likely to come within a month and once it is passed, the services will be introduced,’’ BEST chairman Dilip Patel said. The system would provide a route and other information on services to the commuters having cellphones. It will first be introduced for long-route buses like the air-conditioned BRTS and then on the smaller routes, Patel said. With these services, commuters will know which routes the bus will cover, the next stop and when will it reach the final destination, he said.
