Force Traveller Smart Citibus has been inducted in the B.E.S.T. fleet to bring about a paradigm shift in the last mile connectivity for Mumbai commuters from metro and local stations. The first lot of 5 Traveller Smart Citibuses (a part of 500 such Smart Citibuses planned by B.E.S.T) were flagged off and dedicated to the Mumbai commuters at a grand ceremony by Uddhav Thackeray – President, Shiv Sena in the presence of local dignitaries and B.E.S.T officials.
The fully air-conditioned, 21 seater (+7 standees) Force Traveller is a hi-tech solution for public City Bus operations. The large, normal, single or double decker buses are plagued by low occupancy ratios and hence unprofitable to operate on feeder routes.The major differentiating unique features of the Traveller which contribute to its remarkable success are that it is a proven monocoque panel van and it is powered by the proven Mercedes derived powertrain that offers most reliable performance besides best in class fuel economy.
