Update January 2023: December 2022, Exactly opposite IIT main gate bus stop (That goes towards Seepz, JVLR etc), This bus seem to take all gender commuters. So it seems like it is no more a women-only bus service.

Update January 2022: Mumbai still awaits more Ladies special (Women Only) Public Buses on other routes in Mumbai suburbs like major commercial locations in Andheri & Bandra. As of November 2019, 6 Yellow buses were started during Office / Peak hours between (CSMT) Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and (NCPA) National Centre for the Performing Arts, Nariman Point.

Tejaswini : What You Should Know

For the first time, BEST is going to own these Yellow colour Tejaswini buses (A total of 37 buses) which cost about 29.5 Lakh each (i.e 3 Million) with total costing going to Rs.1091.5 Lakh (111 Million). Another big step with the previous one on fare cut down for regular fleets by about 50% to gain a number of commuters, A remarkable step highly appreciated by Middle-income people who travels regularly.

‘Tejaswini’ will brings relief to Women commuters especially during peak hours if operated at commercial locations like BKC, Andheri MIDC & SEEPS and others. Although routes in Mumbai and Suburban are yet to be declared publicly, The news itself is a big relief for working-class females in Mumbai. Major middle income working ladies travel via BEST buses now.

A brief description of these buses: It’s a Non-Air Conditioner, 32 Seater bus which will be easily identified from far with its Yellow colour compared to the Regular red one. Being a lady’s special bus, Women can now travel safely & comfortably. BEST is already operating one such double-decker bus (Only for Ladies commuters) in the city which routes between NCPA & CSMT. The need has been seen during such operations in past bringing in a call of action to get many more dedicated Women-only buses around Mumbai city & Suburbans.

Navi Mumbai has already started these services in 2018 and commuters are satisfied too. But, Mumbai Suburban & city locations like BKC, Andheri, Churchgate, CSMT, and Lower Parel have a large number of Ladies’ travellers compared to Navi Mumbai and proper routing at such required locations is the need of time.

As of this great beginning, i.e December 2019 and Early 2020, The services will see these 37 buses plying at Peak office Hours only with bus timing scheduled between ‘7:00 Am to 11:00 Am’ & ‘5:00 Pm to 9:00 Pm’ respectively. I personally believe, evening timings should be increased to 10:30 Pm as late working has become a norm in Mumbai city now. With increasing demand and considering the crowd, if needed these buses will also run during non-peak hours in the coming future.

So all you working ladies commuters, What do you think about this women-only bus service? Which routes require it the most? Put down your views & comments and lets us & BEST know about same for a better commute planning in Mumbai. Cheers to BEST for this move.

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.
