Pune is one of the most preferred cities in Maharashtra by the youngsters as it has become one of the tech-hub in the country. Many SMEs, as well as multinational companies, have their offices here, where thousands of employment opportunities have opened. The developers also, bearing in mind the need for residences, introduce flats in Pune for sale.
But the biggest issues while buying any property is that travel convenience. Many times, residential projects in Pune are introduced by promoting travel convenience. Undoubtedly, Pune is the city with the least travel issues. Here is how the city offers flexibility when it comes to commute.
Pune is located on the plateau of Deccan which connects almost all the cities in India. The most prominent and the nearest megacity to Pune is Mumbai- the financial capital of India. Mumbai Pune Express Way is the fastest route through which the distance within both the cities has come down to the time of maximum 2 and half hours. At the same spot where expressway terminates, at Ravet, the old Mumbai Pune highway meets and continues towards Bangalore as Pune-Bangalore National Highway. One can reach Hyderabad and Chennai through Pune-Solapur highway as well as Ahmednagar, Nashik and several other cities can be reached through roadways.
Pune municipal transport runs buses to different localities at an almost hourly basis. You have an option of either non-a/c or a/c buses. Swargate is the main hub at the centre of the city, but different localities such as Kothrud have their own depots. Today, many taxi operators such as Ola and Uber are available which can be booked through your smartphone. Autorickshaws are an integral part of any city. You can take it from anywhere and to wherever you want.
Pune is one of the main railway junctions. Mumbai to Pune is just 3-hour journey. Beyond that, one route heads to Kolhapur and the other is directed to Solapur. Unlike Mumbai, Pune runs very few suburban trains, especially within Lonavala and Pune. It is mainly due to people residing at Talegaon etc.
Though roadways are convenient in Pune, the increasing traffic has become a headache for all. The congestion in your way sometimes consumes double the time it usually takes. To overcome the issues, the government has introduced Pune Metro, and after success in the other cities like Mumbai and Delhi, this will definitely help traffic queries in the city. The expected route of the Pune metro is Pimpri-Chinchwad to Swargate and Kothrud-Vanaz to Viman Nagar. The metro will connect the most crowded areas in the town and would make it more convenient especially for the working professionals.
In short, all the possible ways are taken care of for the traffic issue and making it better as well as a convenient commute. Ultimately, residential projects in Pune have got high demand. Earlier, one who wasn’t keen about residing at Pune just due to commute problems has now started seeking flats in Pune for sale.
