Pune, September 5, 2019 : Commissioner of Police Dr K Venkatesham while replying to tweet, said that people can use BRT route to avoid traffic congestion. It has been done as due to Metro construction work, width of road has reduced. Cops have also put up boards that people can use BRT lane.
In mid June 2019 to manage congestion of traffic in the city, owing to the on-going metro work, district officials, police and PMC decided to open some bus rapid transit system (BRTS) lanes in the city for all vehicles.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system covers approx 100 KM of roads in both Pune as well as Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporations.
The BRT system is operated by the Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML).
