    I would like to know about the bus service from Mumbai to Pune.

    I need to be in Pune sometime soon, but I don't have a specific day or time when I would go, so I would to have the information on hand and go knowing that I will get a bus service to Pune.

    The information required is the number fo buses that go, how regular they go, and time it would take me to reach Pune.
