Soon: BMC to start ‘Bike Ambulance’ service

Emergency can strike anytime as one can suddenly meet with an accident or a heart attack while walking on the road. In such cases, the first one hour for the patient is important. So, you will be surprised to know that a phone number can save your life. Yes, you can call on 108 and the ‘Bike Ambulance’ along with the doctor will be running it, which will help you by providing a necessary treatment. Now, BMC has decided to start ‘Bike Ambulance’


Ambulance takes a long time to reach the congested areas in Mumbai. Even a thought of our beloved one falling sick and after that a long wait for an ambulance scares us. So set all your worries free as ‘Bike Ambulance’ was started.

Speaking to My Medical Mantra, Rohini Kamble, chairman, BMC health committee said, “Ambulance takes time to reach due to the traffic jam in the city. This can be risky for the patient.  Recently, the government has started ‘Bike Ambulance’ which is receiving a great response. Owing to which, we are also thinking to start a ‘Bike Ambulance’. No decision has been taken regarding the same yet.”

Trushna Vishwasrao, corporator, Shiv Sena had submitted a proposal regarding the same. ”After accidents, victim needs immediate treatment. Due to traffic jam in Mumbai the ambulance fails to reach on time. So, a proposal was presented in the BMC’s standing committee. I have been following it up since many years.  The BMC administration is thinking over the same. If Mumbaikars get this facility at the earliest then, lakhs of people will benefit from it.”
