'Chalo' app which is the leading service provider for public bus live tracking and ticketing in many cities across India has now officially partnered with BEST to add Mumbai to it's list.

BEST general manager Lokesh Chandra has made the news official but the service is still in beta testing and will be launched to the public soon.

Commuters will now get reliable information about the live location of their bus along with the expected time of arrival at the stop and how crowded or empty the bus is, so that the commuter can make an informed choice of whether to wait for the bus or to opt for an alternate means of transport. The existing BEST prawas app has tracking feature but it is very inaccurate, Chalo does a much better job.

Commuters will be able to buy a QR based ticket for their journey directly on the app and pay through linked mobile wallet or UPI and just get the code scanned by the conductor instead of having to worry about loose change.

BEST will be launching a Chalo card as well which will be NFC enabled tap and go card which can be recharged with balance in multiples of 10 rs or be used to buy super saver passes.

BEST will be offering 72 super saver plan options for its daily commuters to save money on their travel needs. These can be bought either on the app or loaded by the conductor on the chalo card. The details of plans are given below.

BEST follows its mantra of “Pudhe Chala”(move forward), by which it has modernised its services & fleet over the years. Furthermore, BEST has made commuting flexible by introducing tap to pay smart cards, super saver plans, and NCMC complaint cards.

Beyond providing flexible commute options for Mumbai, BEST is focused on digitisation of services, EV Bus Fleet, affordable fares, goals of using 100% alternate fuel buses by 2027, and a fleet size increase to 10,000 buses in the city

BEST has always strived for seamless connectivity, reaching every corner of the city & has a special bond with Mumbaikars. I applaud GM Lokesh Chandra ji, BEST officials & employees & the Chalo team for rising to the call of the city and always saying, ‘Pudhe Chala.’

We are looking now to increase double-decker buses and induct hydrogen fuel buses into the fleet. Apart from this, from our district committee, we are committed to financially supporting BEST for better bus stops and illumination in dark streets for public safety
