The Disaster cell at BMC’s Mumbai Head Office will have 14 representatives from various vital public and private service sectors of city that can help commute and communicate to their respective departments to coordinate and get their people ready during any major or emergency crises. Some of these agencies being BEST for bus services, Fire Department, Police and more. Also according to news by BMC’s disaster management cell, about 35000 civilians in city have been trained that can help themselves and others on how to go ahead with civil defence during such emergencies.

A system is formed where as when a Mumbaikar dials 108, within 2 rings citizen will get response and on utmost priority the head office will contact BMC office control room of the affected local area ward office, which will alert staff to fight against any such problems and help stuck citizens. 24 hotlines will be connected to head office which will help helplines available and not engaged. Apart from 14 external representatives, 36 other staff members will be present 24×7 throughout monsoon season in 3 shifts with a senior officer in each shift taking critical decisions on Water logging and flooding complaints.

What more ? After experiencing the flooding disaster of 2006, BMC also have arranges and coordinated with Navy and Fire Brigades, along with other 6 regional command centres to get faster help for disaster relief activities. During 2006, all communication medium was down and so this time BMC has arranged for wireless equipments and ham radio devices to communicate in case such situation occurs again.

It was 29th August 2017 and the monsoon flooding situation repeated. It was actually more compared to 2005 flooding. See one of the videos below.

HelloI'm here to say that many times bus 375 from Bandra station heading to shivaji nagar are not on time...more often they are delayed or cancelled.I keep waiting for it for 15-30min still the bus doesn't come.Today also I waited for 30min still the bus is not on stop.Plz Either change the bus schedule frequency which is shown on Google currently or make the bus come on time so that passangers will act as per convenience.

I visited the website in search for some specific bus routes and timings in Mumbai. I found them all. Well as far as I have used the website, it is pretty good for people to get information at one one place rather than browsing the internet for long hours.
