Commuters demand more buses in Nashik-Pune route


Nashik: The techies from nashik city, working in Pune, have decided to acquire support from the Maharashtra state road transport corporation (MSRTC) to start direct bus services that will connect Nashik with Karvenagar and Yerawada in Pune, as there are IT companies in those two locations. This will make them easy to travel to their work place.

These techies were mobilising support for the service between Hinjewadi IT Park and Nashik last year.

The group of techies, headed by Yogesh Chougule from Ichalkaranji and Akshay Morche from Kolhapur, has more than 13 groups on Whatsapp with 2,600 members, including 500 from Nashik.

“We have appealed to the people for their support. As soon as we reach a specific figure, we will pass the data to the MSRTC,” Chougule said.

About the Hinjewadi bus, Sanket Ghorpade, resident of Khutwadnagar, said, “Now I board the bus from my company stop and get down there in return journey. There is no waiting since the bus is available at the stop well in advance.
