On Monday, May 3, Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) informed that Mumbai-Pune bus services, including Shivneri AC, have been stopped till further notice.

An MSRTC official in an official statement said that there is no demand for inter-city buses which is why the transport body has stopped operations, not just in Mumbai but other cities and districts across Maharashtra. He also said that the service will resume once there is demand from passengers.

MSRTC operated a fleet of 18,000 buses in pre-Covid times, and this had shrunk to 4,000 buses being operated across the state as of Monday, May 3. Essential service workers can board the buses with strictly 50 per cent occupancy, an official added.

Moreover, last week, the state government had issued new guidelines for the MSRTC in view of the pandemic and the rising number of coronavirus cases in the state.

According to reports, as of April 13, the number of people in the ST Corporation testing positive for the coronavirus had reached 5,739.
