Sangamner gets bus link to Mum airport

Nashik: The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has started buses on two new routes on a trial basis.

The buses have been started on the route connecting the Sangamner taluka of Ahmednagar district to the domestic airport in Mumbai via Nashik city, and between Nashik and Dapoli in Ratnagiri.

An MSRTC officer from the Sangamner depot said, “This is a Shivshahi bus, which originally ran between Shirdi and Borivali. But as the temple was closed, we decided to start the bus between the Sangamer depot and the domestic airport. The bus is getting very few passengers from Sangamner to the airport as air traffic is yet to normalise. But we are getting many passengers from Nashik,”

Similarly, in the return journey, most of the passengers get on the bus between Borivali and Nashik.

Now, the MSRTC is running the Shivshahi bus service on this route.

The bus starts from Sangamner depot at 3.15 pm. It reaches Nashik Mahamargh bus stand at 5.15 pm and Borivali at 9.30 pm before the journey comes to an end at the airport at 10.45 pm.

The return journey starts from the domestic airport at 6 am. The bus reaches Borivali at 7 am and arrives in Nashik at 11.15 am before reaching its final destination in Sangamner at 1.15 pm.

The bus fare between Nashik and the domestic airport is Rs 389 for an adult.
