The commuters appreciated the commendable efforts by the BEST and they stated that despite being a debt-ridden body, they assisted Mumbaikars during need of the hour. At various places where the streets were waterlogged, the drivers did not abandon the passengers and drove after the water receded. In the meantime, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials were busy using water pumps to flush the water out of the area. 

BEST chief spokesperson Hanumant Gophane stated that the attendance of drivers and conductors was more than 90 per cent on Monday. This means around 9000 drivers and conductors were on Mumbai streets working hard to ensure the citizens' safety.
