The idea of a special bus for women might take time to know about its success but the attempt of the Chairman Dhondu Mhatre is sure being appreciated by the women commuters of the city. In what can be termed as historic attempt by any NMMT Chairman so far, Dhondu Mhatre’s attempt of introducing a special bus for women is appreciable and praiseworthy. It may be recalled that as a gift to the leader on his birthday, Dhondu Mhatre arranged for the services to be officially inaugurated by Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik on his 56th birthday. There are many women working in Rabale MIDC and IT Park. There are also girls students traveling in the area. It is thus not very difficult to comprehend the inconvenience they have to face while traveling in crowded buses especially during peak hours. To address this, NMMT Chairman Dhondu Mhatre had promised a special ladies bus and fulfilled the promise. The day was marked in a grand way by taking out a special rath. The procession was to welcome Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik. The event was graced by Mayor Manisha Bhoir amongst others. Ganesh Naik appreciated the attempt of beginning a special ladies bus.
