Wake up PMPML
It's been ages since I have written something that I feel strongly about. If you are a reader from out of India, especially Pune city, you may not identify with this new post! But if you feel like still reading, do continue!
Recently, I read in the Pune Mirror that there are presently 20 lakh vehicles running on the roads of Pune! And Pune's roads are built to handle only 8 lakh vehicles!!!! How appalling this is! WHAT was the RTA in Pune doing? Sleeping? What's even more shocking that only 1200 buses are plying on Pune roads compared to the 2500 buses actually required!
A recent article in the Times of India focused on the efforts taken by PMPML to purchase new buses to cater to the ever increasing number of traveling passengers...but I am very skeptical about the same. There are talks about feasibility study of Metro rail in Pune which was successful but the plan is facing roadblocks! An efficient public transport system is the need of the hour...
PCMC, PMC and PMPML must sit together...and ensure that this becomes a reality! Ensure that the Metro rail is implemented quickly, increase the number of buses and so on...
Also, PMPML needs to introduce electronic display boards in its buses to increase visibility, the route information to be displayed in English, Hindi & Marathi and many more! Doesn't PMPML want to make its transport system passenger-friendly?
PCMC,PMC and PMPML...wake up....do something!!!!... Don't have this callous attitude towards the citizens of Pune?
Reader, what do you think? Please leave your comments!.....
