BEST super fast bus service

The BEST Undertaking with a view to rationalize the operational network has introduced the concept of Corridor services. The Undertaking will operate corridor services parallel to suburban rail network.  A bus would be available on the corridor service at around every 20 minutes. This concept is adopted by the Undertaking to create convenient nodal points for changeover.
The Major roads for Corridor Service in Suburbs:
1. Western Link Road – Mahim to Dahisar
2. Swami Vivekanand Road –  Mahim to Dahisar
3. Western Express Highway – Sion/ Mahim to Mira Road
4. Eastern Express Highway – Sion to Thane
5. Lal Bahadur Shashtri Marg – Sion to Thane
6. V.N. Purav Marg & Y. B. Chavan Marg – Sion to Anushakti Nagar/ Navi Mumbai
The Major roads for Corridor Service in City
1.   Mantralaya to Mahim via Worli
2. Colaba To Sion via Dr. Ambedkar Road
3. Colaba to Sion via R.A.Kidwai Road.
The Nodal points for the operation will be Mahim and Sion initially.
Charging of Bus Fares:- On these corridor services the fare will be charged as per ‘Express’ fare structure. The daily bus pass ticket on theses service is Rs.40/- and the monthly bus pass will be Rs.800/-. The holders of these bus passes also have the benefit of traveling in any Ordinary or Limited bus routes in the entire operational area of BEST Undertaking.
