Brihan Mumbai Electric Supply & Transport (BEST) Undertaking provides very high level of route coverage area, i.e. 93% within 500 meter influence. It also has high service frequencies (10 minutes or lower) coverage area, i.e. 75% within 500 meter influence. These values representing that Mumbai’s Island city has good operational bus service. But, BEST bus is facing one of the problem like lack of supportive infrastructure for operating these services. To provide support to the BEST, the project identified  terminal influence gaps and potential terminal locations keeping in mind various factors such as existing terminals and the various routes that accessed the terminal.
