NMMT will ply 24 buses to ferry soccer lovers.
There will be air conditioned (AC) and non-AC buses to pick up and drop the passengers from six parking lots and two suburban railway stations on the CST- Panvel and Thane-Panvel route in the vicinity of D Y Patil stadium.
Juinagar and Nerul stations will provide bus service for the football lovers heading to the stadium and back post the match. The two stations are aligned on both the CST and Thane route.
Ticket tariff will be between Rs 7 and Rs 9 for non- AC and Rs 20 and Rs 35 for AC buses for the commute.
