Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) - Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation
  • Start year: 2006
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: In operation

Bus Rapid Transit system was proposed by AMC as a viable transit option for Ahmedabad In the year 2005. The first phase of the project covering 58 kms is under advanced stage of implementation. A second proposal is being submitted as part of this report. This proposal suggests addition to phase-1 corridors to connect more critical sections of the network. This would enable BRT system to pass through central area, busy commercial areas in the intermediary circle of the city and to the educational hub, where over 15000 students come to study every day. Third phase proposal connects the city with the state capital and the emerging business district of reater Ahmedabad, GIFT city. The BRT system has already shown several mitigation impacts. For example, 20 to 22 per cent of the commuters have moved from using their motorcycles to the bus. With an average trip length on the bus of 7km, this translates into a saving of almost 200,000 vehicle kilometres per day (5,000,000 per month). The monthly surveys also show that 65 per cent of the people who use Janmarg walk to and from the bus station. Typically, these trips are between 0.2km to 1.5km. This also translates into reduction of vehicle travel.Janmarg now operates over a 45km network. This is expected to increase to 135km over the next two years. The system is expected to carry over 500,000 passengers by the end of 2012 and over 700,000 passengers by the end of 2014. This would translate into vehicle mileage savings of 750,000km by 2012 and 1,000,000km by 2014.
