Mumbai: Brihanmumbai electric supply and transport (BEST) has resumed bus services in Mumbai, today; following the government regulations, as commute to far off places for work were a major concern for the people living in Mumbai.
“It has become difficult for us to commute to our workplaces as limited buses are plying on streets now”, said a passenger. “Now the trains are yet to come on the tracks so we are facing problems, it takes four hours now to reach a place where we used to reach in two hours,” he added.
The bus conductor said that buses have started, but they’re running less buses as compared to earlier since the crowd on streets is less. “We are taking all the precautions while doing our work, can’t sit at home so it’s better to work rather than sitting at home,” he added.
“We can’t help it, we come under essential services. As of now one seat one passenger is allowed and we are trying our best to implement the guidelines issued by the government but our seniors force us to take more passengers, we try our best to follow the rules but sometimes can’t help it,” another conductor said.
