MUMBAI: One can’t imagine life without Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT), Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation’s local transit system. It operates bus services that connect Navi Mumbai and certain areas of Mumbai including Thane, Dombivli, Kalyan, Badlapar, Taloja, Panvel & Uran. But people traveling through NMMT will have to pay more to travel by buses from Wednesday, as NMMT hike comes into effect.

The move is being initiated to cut the NMMT’s monthly losses, which touch around Rs3.5 crore.

Fare for regular buses will remain unchanged upto 12km, beyond it, there’ll be hike of Re1 for every 2km, and upto Rs 6 for upto 40km.

Whereas, fare for AC buses will be reduced by Rs 5. Earlier the minimum fare was Rs 20, but now its Rs 15. Buses running between 11 pm and 5 am will charge Limited service rates. The minimum fare for Limited service buses is Rs9, against the Rs7 in regular buses.

NMMT general manager Shirish Aradwad said: “Everything, from the cost of fuel, employee salaries, bus repair and maintenance to accidents, insurance, bus cleaning and toll tax have gone up. The transport body is incurring huge losses because of this.”

On booking return tickets 10% concession will be given on regular as well as AC buses and tickets will be valid till midnight.
