Pimpri Chinchwad, 7th June 2024: Students in Pimpri Chinchwad, from 5th to 12th standard, will be provided with fully subsidized bus passes by the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd. (PMPML). This initiative will take effect in the upcoming academic year 2024/25. Students attending Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) schools from 5th to 12th standard will receive full exemptions on their bus passes. In contrast, students enrolled in private schools within PCMC jurisdiction will benefit from a 75% discount.

PMPML plays a vital role in the city’s transportation network, serving students, employees, senior citizens, and others commuting within Pune, Pimpri Chinchwad, and surrounding areas.

Starting June 15th, PCMC schools can submit application forms to PMPML. These forms, specifying the school name, will be accepted at all bus depots and pass centers citywide. PCMC schools or their representatives can collect forms from students and submit them collectively to PMPML. After that, PMPML will issue passes, which can then be distributed to students within the school premises. This streamlined process eliminates the need for students to make additional trips to bus depots.

For private schools under the PCMC jurisdiction, students will enjoy a 75% discount after document and form verification. Upon verification, PMPML will issue challans to these students. They must then present the challan at a Bank of Maharashtra branch within PCMC jurisdiction. With the completed forms and the challan, students can obtain their passes from the nearby bus depot.

According to the PMPML website, student passes are priced at Rs. 750 for a monthly pass, Rs. 2,000 for a quarterly pass, Rs. 3,000 for a six-month pass, and Rs. 5,000 for a yearly pass across all routes. PMC school students will enjoy full savings on these amounts, while students from private schools under PCMC jurisdiction will benefit from a 75% discount. The PMPML administration strongly encourages all students to participate in this new initiative.
