Great Stuff here! I think sometimes we living in Bombay take the BEST for granted! It's the most efficient bus service anywhere in the country! And hats off to those drivers who navigate our crazy streets.

The old buses are nice. They give the English look, and Bombay then was purely English style. Nice pics, nice site.

The BEST service is one of the best in India IMO, but there are some BEST drivers that spoil its image. I've never seen the low-floor buses running, I've seen them at Goregaon Bus Depot once. A/C buses are the BEST and even though they are highly charged, the bus gets crowded at times. Thats the only flaw of it.

The height of the seats in the new model AC buses have been reduced following complaints that several couples used the back seats to make out
