A Comprehensive Review of BRT System Introduced in Ahmedabad
Traffic congestions have become a major problem in the populous cities of India and Ahmedabad is no exception to it due to its high population density, rapid urbanization, industrialization and lack of traffic discipline. Transportation researchers had brain-stormed for many different alternatives to resolve the issue of traffic congestion and finally a BRT system for Ahmedabad named as “Janmarg” was zeroed upon to. Initially it was thought that BRTS was a sure shot ticket for the short comings of public transportation problems faced by AMTS (Ahmedabad Municipal Transportation Services) alone as there was no other major transportation system prevailing in the city. Also it was in parallel thought by the planners that a multi-modal transportation system is now must for a city like Ahmedabad which is the most populous city and also the financial capital of Gujarat. With these considerations a rail project was announced as early as in 2003. The objective of this paper is to provide a literature review of the comparative analysis of BRTS with other transportation systems justifying the need and analysis of the same.
Keywords- Average Travelling Speed, AMTS, BRTS, Metro-Rail.
