Pune August 12, 2020: The Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) has decided to start air-conditioned buses from Pune airport to Hadapsar and Hinjawadi after lockdown.
As per information shared by PMPML Traffic Manager Anant Waghmare, “It has been planned to start 20 AC bus services. 15 AC buses will commute between Pune airport to Hinjawadi via Pune station, Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), Shivajinagar, Aundh and Wakad. Another five buses from the airport to Hadapsar via Kharadi bypass and Magarpatta.”
The service from Pune airport to Hadapsar was in demand for a long time. Earlier, the PMPML bus was running from Pune to Kothrud and Hinjawadi. Due to the low response from passengers the services had been stopped. In November, a meeting was held with the officials of PMPML and Pune airport to start the service again to Hinjawadi and a new destination. Pune airport and Hadapsar is a new route and it was in demand for a long time. The bus will run via Kharadi bypass and Magarpatta city. A large number of IT professionals are residing in these two places.
