In a recent survey in Pune, it has been found that Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML)is unable to tackle the problems faced by the bus commuters. The survey was concluded by recently by Parisar, which is an environmental group working towards sustainable transport. The various parameters used in the survey were proper bus-shelters, reliability, comfort, frequency of the buses, Bus station design and cleanliness.

The authority scored a lowly ‘C’ grade in the assessment. The only parameter where the authority had scored well was in affordability even though there was a recent transport utility hike. The study also found that the bus travelling experience was harrowing for passengers due to the various fail outs. The bus services are also not reliable and are prone to cancellations. The figure for cancellation of bus service is a striking 22 percent.

Officials of Parisar has said that the feedbacks of some seven hundred commuters were taken into consideration to draw the final conclusion. They also said that these survey will be conducted in a regular basis so as to get a clear picture of the PMPML’s effort towards improvement. The group also gave some solutions to tackle the problems like  computerization, proper time-tables at bus stops, proper scheduling of the buses, amongst others.
