Nashik and Nagpur are two big cities of Maharashtra even though currently there is no direct bus for Nagpur.  As the distance between Nashik to Nagpur is so long so it’s not convenient for a driver to drive up to Nagpur. There will be one or two stops where they will change bus, maybe at jalgaon or Akola. Since the journey mostly during night shift so it’s better to change driver, to ensure passengers safety. MSRTC cannot allow them to drive for longer distances hence three staff will drive the bus during the journey in each direction.
