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.
