The bus shelters are fully illuminated with advertisements and are also a great source of revenue. NMC is also keeping an eye on the shelters so that there is no encroachment by the local vendors.

Nagpurpulse.com team appreciates the work done by NMC for the betterment of nagpurians. But there is a grey side to this too. Sometimes the buses stop much away from the bus shelter thus increasing chaos on the road and hampering smooth flow of traffic. If two buses arrive at the same time there is double parking and the whole road gets jammed. This is a common incidence on Wardha road. Construction of more shelters will aggravate the problem further. NMC needs to check this act of bus drivers as they stop anywhere just to pick up passengers. Implementation of good services with full rules and regulation will go a long way or else it will merely increase accidents on high traffic roads.
