Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT) started two new bus service one from Nere Mahalakshmi Nagar till Panvel station and other from Taloja till Panvel railway station. This move by government had brought a relief for people specially who are staying at Mahalakshmi Nagar, Nere. Because there was no public transport apart from few auto rickshaws or state run ST bus which people have to wait for 2 to 3 hours as there was no frequency.
There is a society bus which is run by builder of Mahalakshmi Nagar, Nere which is not up to mark and is always overcrowded. The maintenance of the bus is never done. That bus is also not regular, especially at morning and evening peak hours the bus frequency is very low and forcing commuters to stand on foot board.
There are more than 10,000 people staying at Mahalakshmi Nagar township at Nere, new panvel. Bus the service of society bus and local Auto is pathetic. Many thanks to NMMC to start the bus service. Builder is using his muscle wit help of politicians so that people will pay money for his bus service which is very much perthitic and not good at all. Also, the builder has constructed illegal road which belonged to a local villager. The builder has not paid him money and threatened the villager and told he will be beaten by builder goons if he again come to builder office to demand rent or ownership of the land where the builder had allegedly constructed the road. Hence with no choice left with village man, he and his people dug the road. Now we residence of Mahalakshmi Nagar is affected. Because builder says he will not compensate the owner. If this road was ok then the NMMT bus would have come till inside of township.
With the introduction of new bus there will be defiantly an increase in property price at this area.
The service of bus number 77 will run between Panvel station (East) and Mahalaxmi Nagar in Nere via Sukapur Circle covering a distance of 7.8km in 26 minutes.
