According to the BEST administration, these AC buses are part of the wet-lease scheme under which BEST has decided to induct 1,500 vehicles in its fleet.

Recently, the transport body reduced the fare of its AC buses from 25 to 6 to attract passengers. According to BEST administrative officers, the response to AC buses has been very good and therefore they decided to introduce more AC buses.

In the first week of November, BEST had launched an AC bus service between Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and Churchgate railway station.
