The BEST official claimed that these bus services will cover the prominent routes of the city, including Dader Plaza , Kalba Devi, Bandra, Mahatma Phule Market in Mumbai and the APMC market in Navi Mumbai. The new bus services will be added to the 25 special bus services that are already in operation, connecting various routes throughout the city.

Similarly, 140 extra bus services are also planned for October 26 on the occasion of Balipratipada and Bhaiduj. These bus services will run across the city.
