I request BEST to keep these buses in a museum style,” said a passenger Yatin Angre.“We have a bond with double-decker buses. It is part of our family and we feel like someone from our family is leaving us. Double-decker buses are the pride of Mumbai, and we feel like it should continue its service,” said Gulabrao Aher, Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) employee.
