Bus-Based Public Transit Systems
Rapid growth in the number of motor vehicles has resulted in severe congestion and higher travel times in cities across India. Due to limited road space and lack of public transport infrastructure, it has increasingly become important to plan our transportation systems, earmarking dedicated space for public modes. Organized and reliable CBS and state of the art planning of BRT systems are the most viable, flexible and scalable options.
Cities, such as Rajkot, Surat, Ahmedabad, Hubli-Dharwad, Amritsar, Indore, Bhopal, Vijayawada and Bhubaneswar have implemented/are in process of implementing BRT system as a cost-effective public transit alternative.
UMTC has been an instrumental resource for state departments and is working on the planning, designing, development and implementation of bus-based transit solutions for various Indian cities.
