BEST to introduce new routes from August 1
From August 1, the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) is set to implement new routes and alter existing, both air-conditioned and ordinary, ones.
The changes are being made in the wake of a periodic review of existing routes and commuter’s travel patterns.

The first bus from Mulund will depart at 8 am and from Airoli at 8.50 am. Another AC bus route (AS 525) will be introduced between Dindoshi and L&T Infotech Park in Mahape. The first bus will leave Dindoshi at 6.45 am and Mahape at 8 am.
In addition, BEST has changed the routes of number 457 (Malad and Seepz) and 463 (Worli Depot to Vashi Naka MMRDA).
Bus service numbers 272, 272, 343 and 277 have been partially converted into express service.
From August 1, bus route number AAS 415 (Agarkar Chowk to Seepz) will operate on public holidays and AS 310 (Bandra Terminus to Diamond Market BKC) will function on Saturdays.
