– New passenger friendly bus shades to be built at 100 locations

Pune, November 30, 2018 : MP Anil Shirole has provided Rs. 3 Cr. From his MP fund for building passenger friendly bus sheds at 100 key locations in the city. First 6 bus sheds from this initiative are completed and are opened for the passengers from today. Out of that, a bus shed on Fergusson College Road is inaugurated at the hands of MP Shirole. Siddharth Shirole, Director, PMPML, Datta Khade, Ram Mehetre, Nileema Khade, Swati Lokhande, Kiran Orase, Nandu Mandora were present among the dignitaries.

These new bus sheds are made up of stainless steel and has spacious seating arrangement for passengers. Every bus shed is of 20 feet by 5 feet area with around 13 to 14 feet seating arrangement . Special thought is given to keep enough space free for specially abled citizens to enter the bus shed. Also, design of the shed is such that it does not block the space on footpath. Each of this new bus shed requires around Rs. 3 lack for its construction, informed Siddharth Shirole.

MP Anil Shirole said, ‘‘Bus stops or bus sheds at many locations in the city are very old, also some of these bus stops do not have proper seating arrangement. In my view, these newly designed stainless steel bus sheds can be an answer to this problem. These sheds are not only passenger friendly, but they keep enough space on the footpath open for walking. I am glad to aid PMPML as I can see this service showing positive change. I’m sure that this it will be more accessible and user friendly near future.’’
