CNG pumps in MMR run dry, cabs, autos hit hard

Several CNG pumps in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) had to close on Friday because of a gas supply cut owing to a technical reason. Public transport, including autos, taxis, buses and some app cabs, were affected.

About 6.9 lakh vehicles run on CNG in MMR, including 3 lakh private cars, 3.2 lakh autos, 61,000 cabs and 6,100 buses. Close to 40% of taxis and autos went off road on Friday evening as more than a dozen pumps in the island city and suburbs shut. Read more
