MUMBAI: Even as the transport department plans share autorickshaw stands at Metro stations for last mile connectivity, BEST is set to introduce feeder services during peak hours to nearby commercial hubs or thickly populated housing colonies.The feeder services will be synced with the Metro train timings at all stations. According to sources, the first such service is likely to be introduced by Mumbai Metro and BEST between Saki Naka station and Chandivli in the first week of December.
A Reliance spokesperson said: "We have explored every option to provide seamless last-mile connectivity for our commuters." There is usually a huge rush at Saki Naka, Airport Road, Chakala, Andheri and DN Nagar stations during peak hours, sources said.
bus feeder routes will cater to the rush in future," said BEST general manager Jagdish Patil. "We are in talks with Reliance for more bus services outside Metro stations so that commuters just need to walk out of a Metro and head towards a waiting bus."
Passenger rights activist G R Vora said: "There is a need for proper connectivity by bus or autorickshaw outside Metro stations. It will save time, end the refusal menace (by autos) and also provide commuters a public transport at Metro stations."
