To facilitate tourism in the state, Maharashtra government is bringing forth a new mobile application that will help people plan their journey across the state. The app will be an integrated platform for all modes of transport in the state.

The state government and US-based Ford Motor Company signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in June during Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’ visit to the United States. The Ford Motor Company aims to set up a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for integrated mobility in Maharashtra by exploring smart urban mobility modes of transport. The company has decided to make an investment of 50 for the project.
