Transportation facility in Thane is a topic of great concern to the Thane Municipal Corporation. This city has developed so rapidly that barren lands are rapidly occupied by huge housing complexes. Big malls and shopping complexes have sprung up throughout the city. This has tremendously increased traffic of the city. The corporation keeping an eye on future of this city has constructed many flyovers. It has executed many projects of road widening and improving the roadways which improved transportation in Thane. TMC started its own bus service on 9th February 1989 and became the major public shuttle services in Thane. TMT buses even ply to area beyond Thane city entering neighboring cities of Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Kalyan and Mira Bhayandar. Most of the buses ply on routes between major housing areas and Thane railway station. There was need to modify the TMT services in Thane, so that it complies with growing needs of the city. In order to achieve this corporation has scraped old buses and purchased many new buses.
