The mission of Pune Bus Guide is to make public transport related information easily accessible and available to common citizens of Pune city, Pimpri-Chinchwad and surrounding areas.This information is not available easily at one place today, which causes confusion in the mind of passengers and they opt either for their own vehicles or other modes of transports such as auto rickshwa, six-seater etc.We strongly believe that if this gap of information is filled, many people who are currently using private modes of transport will go for public transport.More people using public transport would create lesser pollution and make our roads congestion-free.
