Bus, Mumbai: 9 reviews and 9 photos


The BEST (Bombay Electric Supply & Transport) buses run all over the city and are numerous. There are the single buses and the red double decker variety. Bus routes are written in Hindi on the front and side of the bus however English is often given on signs at bus stops. I read warnings to be careful of pickpockets on these buses. BEST buses are the largest municipalized transport in India.

There are now new city buses which are air-conditioned and the doors are controlled by the driver.
