The Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT) will run special night services to Dadar in from Vashi, Ghansoli, and Panvel during the Ganesh festival for devotees going to Mumbai for the Ganpati darshan. The services will be available every half an hour from both ends.

For the last two, the celebrations of the Ganpati festival were very limited due to a number of restrictions imposed following the Covid-19 pandemic.

A large number of devotees are expected to visit Mumbai during the 10-day Ganesh festival. For the convenience of residents of Navi Mumbai, the civic transport wing will run special bus services during the night. “While there are various modes of transport available during the day, the NMMT will run special bus services during the night for the convenience of devotees,” said an official from NMMT.

According to NMMT, the special services will be available from 9.30 pm to early morning 5 am from September 2 to September 9. “These services will be available at 25 to 30 minutes from Vashi bus stand, Ghansoli bus depot, and Panvel Railway station,” said an official from NMMT. He added that the civic transport wing will depute a total of 8 buses for night services.

A maximum of 9 trips will be available from the Vashi bus stand to Dadar Hindmata followed by 6 trips from Panvel railway station to Dadar Hindmata and 4 trips from Ghansoli bus depot to Dadar Hindmata. NMMT has appealed to devotees to use the special services as they will be available at normal fare.
