Nagpurians may have to wait more for the Aapli bus service to resume in the city as the Nagpur Municipal Commissioner Radhakrishnan B is not sure that resuming the bus service amid the pandemic will be a good decision or not.
The proposal to start the Aapli bus service which has been stopped for over 6 months after the outbreak was approved in the meeting of the NMC Transport committee, but the final decision to start the Aapli bus service depends on the NMC commissioner Radhakrishnan B.
Even though the Commisioner is in favor of getting the bus started but he is unable to take any decision due to the ongoing severity of Covid-19.
Accordjng to information recieved from the source, some MLAs, including Mayor Sandip Joshi, may hold a meeting on Tuesday regarding the related issue and there is a possibility of taking a decision during the meeting.
Amidst all this, it is certain that the regular bus passengers of the city are getting upset due to the lack of citywide transport. It should be noted that the operations of the Aapli bus in Nagpur have been completely stopped since March 23. During the lock down, the bus service was
not expected to start but with the process of unlock coming into effect, city buses started operating in many cities of the state including Mumbai, Pune and Nashik. Later the State government started operating the buses of MSRTC at full capacity
Meanwhile, private travelels were also started with COVID-19 guidelines but the wait for Aapli bus in Nagpur continues.
