Pune, 6th November 2023: After several days of dedicated efforts, Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) has successfully launched a mobile app that will revolutionize the way passengers book tickets and track buses. This exciting development is set to transform the digital journey of PMPML and enhance the commuting experience for its 13 lakh daily passengers.

For a while, passengers have been eagerly awaiting the convenience of booking tickets through a mobile app, and PMPML’s latest initiative promises to fulfil this demand. The app is now ready and has undergone thorough testing, and it is scheduled for a demonstration next week.

The introduction of a ‘Payment Gateway’ is also in the works, with a proposal submitted to the Central Bank of India. Once approved, passengers will have the convenience of booking tickets online, making their commuting experience even more seamless.

Nitin Narvekar, Co-Managing Director of PMPML, Pune, stated, “The work of the ‘PMPML’ app has been completed. As soon as the Central Bank of India approves the ‘Payment Gateway’ proposal, passengers will be able to purchase tickets through the app. Apart from this, other facilities on the app can also be availed.”

PMPML’s digital journey began last month with the launch of a QR code service, allowing passengers to purchase tickets via QR codes. The addition of a mobile app to their services marks another significant step in improving the overall passenger experience.

One of the app’s standout features is the ability to track the live location of buses, allowing passengers to plan their journeys more effectively. This invaluable feature is the result of extensive work that involved mapping bus stops and routes in collaboration with Google’s suggestions and collecting data for six months.

The mapping of approximately 1,500 bus stops and 580 routes has been completed. As soon as the app goes live, passengers can effortlessly access real-time bus information for their chosen routes through their mobile devices.


PMPML serves a massive network with 4,674 stops and 980 routes, generating a daily income of around one and a half crores. With the new mobile app, PMPML aims to provide passengers with a more convenient, efficient, and user-friendly computing experience.
