Pune Municipal Transport (PMT) Online at PMTPune.org

Just browsed through PmtPune.org, the new official website of the Pune Municipal Transport (PMT). The site is impressive. Kudos to everybody involved in creating the site.

Designing a website is not a big deal these days, but making it easy to use and providing useful data and functionality, surely is. Especially as most PMT staff would be computer illiterate.

The site provides –

  • Route Info
  • Schedules
  • Even Maps depicting the routes!
  • Route Finder
  • Pass Info
  • Pune Darshan City Tour Info
  • Hire a Bus Info
  • Complaints Form
  • Contacts

There’s lots of other useful data and no empty sections.

Pune Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) BusThe BRT project has got a bad name in recent times but BRT buses make the site look good. BRT bus images flash across all pages while the other 99% of run down tin cases that are PMT buses are not shown.

The site actually is too good for PMT’s current standards. Viewing the website, even a resident of a developed nation used to great public transport systems might get fooled into thinking that he/she can use PMT while in Pune. If you have been to Pune, you would know that is pretty much impossible.

Hopefully the new website is a sign of good things to come for PMT and public transport systems in Pune.

I also hope the software companies haven’t charged some exorbitant amount for the web development and maintenance. I guess old world govt. officials could be easily made to think that it’s rocket science and worth millions.

The site is well designed but here are a few things I found amiss –

  1. Page title is not informative and stays the same for all pages. Search engines will not be kind to the site.
  2. No Favicon image that will be displayed in tabs on Firefox and IE7.
  3. The site provides for ad spaces. But it’s highly unlikely that PMT would be able to sell that space. So best option is to get the site on to Google Adsense or similar network.

PmtPune.org needs to learn from the egovpmc.com experience. EGovPmc.com the supposed e-governance initiative of the Pune Municipal Corporation has been a miserable failure as the site is down very often and there seems to be zero participation from the PMC administration. The site is also rarely updated and compalaints are never responded to. I have earlier blogged about how the egovpmc and pmcelection.com sites were messed up during election time.

PMTPune.org looks and feels much better. However great care needs to be taken to keep PMT staff interested and involved in the project, becasue if they stop cooperating, PmtPune.org could be another failed venture like egovpmc.

    This is all about Today,
    When i was Travelling in PMT (MH-12-1284 ) from viman Nagar to Pune Station. I Left Bus at sadhuwasvani stop but forgot my laptop in PMT.

    Then Bus left towards pune station and I thought to catch bus by auto towards station but at the same moment an idea peeped in my mind to take the help of police.

    So as per the idea i went to the nearest police station (Bund Garden Police Station) & told all that happened to the members. But co-incidently they were having their lunch but one of them took initiative and came with me. we searched for the Bus over two-three stations. we even had not the number of that Bus. we enquired all on the basis of Ticket that i took from the conductor. at last,We found the Bus at Pune station Depot. then we met the couductor and when he said that he has deposited the Laptop to Mananging director then i Felt that i got the heaven.

    To conclude, everyone helped me which sugggests that “The people who work for the POST, they follow their
    responsibilities.”
    Special Thanks to

    I just came to the PIMPRI – FINOLEX CHOWK BUS STOP to LEAVE MY FATHER IN LAW and just found the MANAPA bus arriving, I waived the bus to stop and the bus did stop but did stop only for second and though my FATHER IN LAW was entering into the bus with almost his one leg on the first step, the BUS TOOK OFF immediately without looking whether the passenger has got in or not.
    And HE almost got HUNGED up for few second and if by chance his had left then would have fallen down in the WHEELS of the BUS and would be no more….
    Later came to know that he and along with the co passengers fought with the conductor and the driver for thier irresponsibe behavious but they did the same thing at other stops and were hurrying to take the bus rather than waiting for the passengers to get in….
    I WAS ANGRY LIKE A REBEL and COULD NOT TAKE this and so followed the BUS till the next CHOWK i.e. PIMPRI CHOWK but there too he didnt stop and went ahead,,, i couldnt take that…………….
    The BUS was arriving from CHINCHWAD and leaving to Corporation.

    Hi,

    Where I can find the rules for ladies seat? Please upload these details on the net so that people will use that reference.

    I heard that the leadies seats for are reserved only at the start point of the bus and not through out the route.. I want to confirm this.

    Also one sugesstion is that please do some analysis of the ratio of men and women for all the routes before allocating the 50% to both..

    Best Regards,

    Dear Sir,
    I am daily passanger of PMT Bus No.51 which route from Benkar Vasti Dhayari to Shivajinagar.
    I used to travel at 9.05 morning from Garmal to Modern College. This bus is very useful to
    all office employees,College students, Outside passangers etc.
    But on today i faced problem with new driver who is teaching about Rules. All passangers are known about rules for travelling. But sometime we can avoid these things whereas only one
    bus is servicing in this time whereas requested more service from some passangers on this
    time.

    So, I requesting you to please advoice this driver. Never I cannot accept like this behavior.

    we can accept these rules after service is satisfactory.

    Dear Sir,

    It has been observed that more than 90% buses don’t obey the Traffic Rules e.g. :- They stop their bus on Zeebra Crossing at traffic signal. every bus has a sticker of we obey traffic rules. So my request is to not to spend money on these stickers if they are not obeying the rules stickers are of no use.

    There are NO MAPS on http://www.pmtpune.org as you have mentioned. There is also no TIMETable. The route finder simply gives the route numbers but not at what time the bus will reach the stand. How does one plan to be at the stand if the times are not given. This is definitely convenient on the part of PMT – if they do not give out the times then they are not held accountable. Please review the Website in detail before posting on your blog. Your statements are WRONG !!!!
