Residents of Uran have demanded that all Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT) buses run upto Pensioner Parks in Uran. They alleged that during non-peak hours, NMMT buses terminate a stop ahead of Pensioners Park.

There are three routes NMMT bus that goes up to Pensioners Park. They are route numbers 30, 31, 39, and 30-AC.

According to residents, between 5 am and 9:30 am and 7 pm to 10 pm, these buses run up to Pensioners Park. However, between 9.30 am and 7 pm, all buses terminate at Chaar Phata also known as Uran ST Stand which is one stop ahead of Pensioners Park.

Speaking to FPJ, Uran City Congress Committee Chairman Prakash Anant Patil said, “Following demand from commuters, we have requested the NMMT to run all buses upto Pensioners Park.
