What is NMMT BUS DAY?
Bus Day is an awareness initiative by NMMT in assoication with the public transport app Zophop and GSF to promote the use of public transport among people. The bigger aim is to convince people from all strata of the society to start using public transport for their everyday travel. It is a call to all the citizens of Navi Mumbai to use public transport on 23rd Feb, 2016 for their getting about in the city.

Bus Day has been suggested by NMMT and a few other enthusiastic participants( Zophop and GSF ). The idea behind Bus Day is to observe changes which can be brought in the city trying to respect environment-traffic situation aiming to improve the health of individuals.

What should be done on Bus Day?
We should not use our private vehicles for one day. We should use public transport, walk a little more and plant trees.

Who are the people participating in Bus Day?
It is an event for all citizens of Navi Mumbai as well as for corporations around Navi Mumbai i.e., all individulas, companies, government organizatoins, auto-rickshaws, NMMT, Navi Mumbai Police…and everyone who lives in Navi Mumbai and cares for the environment of the city.

What is the responsibility of these participants?
Everyone has to either use or help others to use Public Transport. As an individual, do not use your cars for a day, use only Public Transport. Companies should permit all employees to come to the office by bus. Auto-rickshaws should take fair fare, the traffic police should manage the situation on road.

How can Bus Day be a success?
Bus Day will be a success if we see that the roads are not congested, there is less noise pollution on roads( read: no more honking), when we can see a change in traffic around us, if we cannot see smoke rings around street lights in night, if we can see winter fog instead of smog, if, in the night sky we can see the stars clear and bright.Bus Day has been planned on 23rd February 2016. On that day we request you to leave your personal vehicles behind and JUST TAKE A BUS to commute!
